Oral Fixation Vol. 2 (Spanish: Fijación Oral Vol. 2) is the fifth studio album by Colombian pop singer-songwriter Shakira, released on November 28, 2005 by Epic Records. The album has sold 8 million copies worldwide.
"The title comes from the fact that I have always lived through my mouth," Shakira has said. "It is my biggest source of pleasure and my most accessible vehicle to discover and enjoy the world. I am fixated on chocolate! I am fixated on the spoken word, the written word, the things I have said and the things I should never have said. This is the reason why I decided on the names for the albums." For the album artwork, Shakira called upon Renaissance icons to explain the significance of Oral Fixation. In Oral Fixation Vol. 2 the same child from the past album is perched in a tree and reaches for an apple held in Shakira's hand. "Vol. 2 is more of a Jungian sort of thing, since the reference is to a universal archetype of Eve (Adam and Eve) and the original sin. I think that is something that is really subconsciously in our minds. On the cover of Vol. 2 I wanted to add another reason for Eve to bite the forbidden fruit - that would be her oral fixation." The cover was changed in many Middle Eastern regions, mainly in GCC countries, due to the exposure of Shakira's body. It is alternated with one in which the tree leaves extend to cover her belly; it only shows the top of her body and covers the rest.
