"Te Dejo Madrid" (English: I leave you Madrid) is a song written by Colombian singer Shakira about the city of Madrid, the capital of Spain. The music video for it featured the singer as a bullfighter. It was featured on her English breakthrough album Laundry Service. Although it was released as the fifth single in a lot of European countries in 2002, it was not released in the United States. "Te Dejo Madrid" was very successful in Italy and Spain, but the song did not repeat its success in Latin America, as it reached a peak position of forty-five in Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks.
The music video for "Te Dejo Madrid" is infamously remembered for the lawsuit that famous Spanish bullfighter Julián López Escobar filed against Shakira, for using footage of his performances without his permission. In the music video, Shakira is seen lying on a bed and in front of a mirror in a bullfighting costume. The television shows scenes from a bullfighting performance. It shows Shakira then running to the stadium, where these performances are recorded, with a pair of large scissors. When she arrives, there is a man, who is the bullfighter, inside the ring, who is pictured throughout the video as maybe her lover, who is looking in the mirror at himself. Shakira flips the mirror around so she is facing the bullfighter. Shakira is shown with a bull mask on and she is portrayed as the bull. They come face to face and she touches his lips, but turns away and plays the harmonica solo. The video ends with Shakira cutting off her long hair in the mirror.
In 2003 and 2004, Shakira performed the song live on her Tour of the Mongoose. However, the song was performed only on the Spanish-speaking countries which were visited for the tour. In 2006 and 2007, Shakira performed the song on every concert of her Oral Fixation Tour. In 2010 and 2011, Shakira performed the song on every concert of her The Sun Comes Out World Tour.
