About Beautiful Liar

"Beautiful Liar" is a song recorded by American singer Beyoncé and Colombian singer Shakira. It was written by Beyoncé, Amanda Ghost, Ian Dench, and Stargate members Mikkel S. Eriksen and Tor Erik Hermansen, and produced by Stargate and Beyoncé for the deluxe edition of Beyoncé's second solo studio album, B'Day (2006). The mixing of the song was done by Gustavo Celis. "Beautiful Liar" was released on February 12, 2007 through Columbia Records and Music World Entertainment as the only single from the deluxe edition of the album. A Spanish and English mixed version of the song was produced and titled "Bello Embustero". "Beautiful Liar" is a mid-tempo song; musically, it is a melding of Shakira's Latin and Arabic styles with Beyoncé's contemporary hip hop and R&B styles. Its theme is female empowerment; two female protagonists sing about being charmed by the same man, but instead of fighting over him, both ladies agree that he is not worth their time. The song was well received by music critics, who praised generally Beyoncé's and Shakira's collaboration. "Beautiful Liar" was nominated for Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals at the 50th Grammy Awards (2007), while the Spanish version was nominated for Latin Grammy Award for Record of the Year at the Latin Grammy Awards of 2007. It won an Ivor Novello Awards for Best-Selling British Song in 2008.

(Ay)

(Ay, nobody likes being played)

Oh, Beyonce, Beyonce
Oh, Shakira, Shakira (hey)

He said I'm worth it, his one desire
I know things about that him you wouldn't want to read about
He kissed me, his one and only, (yes) beautiful liar
Tell me how you tolerate the things you just found out about

You never know
Why are we the ones who suffer?
I have to let go
He won't be the one to cry

(Ay) Let's not kill the karma
(Ay) Let's not start a fight
(Ay) It's not worth the drama
For a beautiful liar
(Oh) Can't we laugh about it?
(Oh) It's not worth our time
(Oh) We can live without him
Just a beautiful liar

I trusted him, but when I followed you
I saw you together
I didn't know about you then till I saw you with him again
I walked in on your love scene
Slow dancing
You stole everything, how could you say I did you wrong?

We'll never know
When the pain and heartbreak's over
Have to let go
The innocence is gone

(Ay) Let's not kill the karma
(Ay) Let's not start a fight
(Ay) It's not worth the drama
For a beautiful liar
(Oh) Can't we laugh about it?
(Oh) It's not worth our time
(Oh) We can live without him
Just a beautiful liar

Tell me how to forgive you (ooh)
When it's me who's ashamed (oh)
And I wish I could free you
Of the hurt and the pain
But the answer is simple
He's the one to blame (hey)

Ay, Beyonce, Beyonce
Ay, Shakira, Shakira
Oh, Beyonce, Beyonce
Oh, Shakira, Shakira

(Ay) Let's not kill the karma
(Ay) Let's not start a fight
(Ay) It's not worth the drama
For a beautiful liar
(Oh) Can't we laugh about it?
(Oh) It's not worth our time
(Oh) We can live without him
Just a beautiful liar
