Learn Spanish with La Camisa Negra by Juanes

One of my favorite singers is Juanes.  Juanes is a Colombian musician who has won more than 20 Latin Grammy Awards!  One of his top hits was La Camisa Negra.  It is a fun song, but there are some “double meaning” words to it.  This is very common in Juanes music.  The lyrics can be a bit confusing to the beginning Spanish speaker.  This video will try to help you better understand this fun song.
