For the first time we venture into the world of Spanish Rap! El Chojin is the current world record holder for fastest rapper.
In this humourous track from his 2007 LP ‘Striptease’ he imagines how his life would be turned upside down if he dated Shakira.

(QUE PASARÍA) SI MI CHICA SE LLAMARA SHAKIRA

Okey, y ahora les voy a contar, 
lo que creo que pasaría, si mi chica se llamara Shakira..

Me levantaría cada mañana
para ver en que nueva portada ha aparecido mi cara
o mi culo tomando el sol en la playa
seguro habría paparachis viviendo en la puerta de casa
todos los rappers me odiarían dirían 
"el chojin es una porquería que pinta con esa tía"
las criticas sin dudas serían brutales
y la verdad es que sería una tortura escucharles

de todas maneras seguro que mi carrera pasaba
de eterna promesa a rutinante estrella
ya saben que se vende lo que sale en la prensa
mi agente seguro que intenta que aprenda a mover las caderas
podría tener un número uno en los cuarenta
por fín llegaría las ventas
y saben que? quizás lo único malo podría ser
que pasaría de ser El chojin a ser solo el chico de...

Shakira! Podría ser mi chica 
Probablemente eso me resolvería la vida
El banco no devolvería más facturas mías 
Si mi chica se llamara Shakira

Movistar patrocinaría mis giras,
tendría un contrato guapísimo para vestirme de adidas
y no es que me haga especial ilusión pero lo mismo 
me llevan a representar a España a eurovisión
no tendría ni que hacerlo bien para vender
dirían "la estrella es ella, el parásito es él"
tendrían razón, mi ego sufriría un montón
discutiríamos y hablarían de nosotros en televisión

sabría como es una limusina por dentro
tiene que molar, yo que estoy acostumbrado al metro
pasaría de ser medio famoso a ser famoso entero
famoso consorte, con suerte depende pero,
siempre existe un pero, 
lo que lograría no sería por mis méritos
terminaría creyendo que me merezco los éxitos
dejando a un lado el hecho de que vinieron por ser el chico de..

Shakira! Podría ser mi chica…

Pregunta: 
¿vivir con un sex simbol te convierte en un sex simbol?
Porque si es así es un positivo
hay un montón de cosas buenas en salir con una estrella
los celos no son una de ellas
todo el día viajando por países lejanos
siendo cortejada por modelos y actores guapos
no digo que no podríamos llevarlo, solo digo que soy de barrio,
y que me agobia viajar tanto

en resumidas cuentas me obligo a pensar
que aunque no estaría mal no podríamos durar
porque como sabes bien yo soy un orgulloso
me encanta que mi falta de éxito sea por méritos propios
con esto no quiero romperte el corazón amiga
pero debes seguir tu vida
lo siento de verdad, eres espectacular
pero no he nacido para ser solamente el chico de..

Shakira! Podría ser mi chica…
(WHAT WOULD HAPPEN) IF MY GIRL WAS CALLED SHAKIRA

OK, now I’m going to tell you
What I think would happen if my girl was called Shakira

I would get up every morning 
to see what new cover my face has appeared on
or my ass sunbathing on the beach 
for sure, paparazzi would be living in my front door 
all the rappers would hate me and say 
"El Chojin is rubbish, what’s he doing with that woman" 
No doubt the critics would be brutal 
and the truth is that it would be torture listening to them 

Anyway sure my career was going 
from eternal promise to shining stardom
they know what sells papers 
my agent would definitely want me to learn to shake my hips
I could have a number one in the top forty 
at last I would reach top sales
and do you know what? perhaps the only downside could be 
that Chojin would just be the boyfriend of ... 

Shakira! Could be my girl 
Probably that would sort out my life 
The bank wouldn’t return anymore of my bills 
If my girl was called Shakira 

Movistar would sponsor my tours, 
I’d have a sweet contract to wear adidas 
It’s not that I’m especially keen, but maybe 
they’ll send me to represent Spain at Eurovision 
I wouldn’t even have to be good to sell either
They’d say "she’s the star, he’s the parasite" 
They’d be right, my ego would suffer hugely 
We’d argue and they’d talk about us on TV 

I’d know what it’s like inside a limousine
It has to be cool, I'm used to the underground 
I would go from being half famous to being completely famous
famous consort, hopefully, depending, but 
there’s always a but 
what I’d have achieved wouldn’t be for my merits 
I’d end up believing that I deserve the successes 
leaving aside the fact that it came because I was the boy of…

Shakira! Could be my girl…  

Question: 
Can living with a sex symbol convert you into a sex symbol? 
Because if so that’s a plus point 
there are loads of good things about going out with a star 
jealousy is not one of them 
all day traveling in distant countries 
being courted by models and good looking actors 
I'm not saying we couldn’t take it, just that I'm from the streets 
and traveling so much overwhelms me

In short I force myself to think 
even though it wouldn’t be bad we couldn’t last 
because as you know well I’ am proud person
I love that my lack of success is on my own merit 
I don’t want to break your heart with this girl 
but you should continue your life 
I’m really sorry, you’re spectacular 
but I wasn’t born just to be the guy that… 

Shakira! Could be my girl…

GRAMMAR: THE CONDITIONAL

Practically the whole song uses the conditional.

In English this translates as ‘Would’ + infinitive.

Me levantaría cada mañana – I would get up every morning

The main exception being Poder which becomes Could (Would be able to)

Podría tener un número uno – I could have a number one

It is often used with ‘If’ clauses (the 2nd condicional in English)

though the only example in this song is the title.

The conditional is often used with Deber to soften the meaning

i.e. Should rather than Have To or Must

The third line from the end could be changed to:

Pero deberías seguir tu vida – but you should continue your life

Similarly, it can soften other verbs for politeness

Me gustaría verte – I’d like to see you

Another use is for possibility in the past.

¿Dónde estuvo? Estaría en casa

Where was he? He must have been at home

¿Qué hora fue? Serían las doce

What time was it? It would have been (about) twelve.
