"Whenever, Wherever" is a song by Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira for her third studio album and English-language debut, Laundry Service. It was released on 27 August 2001, by Epic Records as the lead single from the album.

The song was written and produced by Shakira and Tim Mitchell, with additional songwriting from Gloria Estefan.

"Whenever, Wherever" is a mix of latin music and worldbeat that heavily influenced by Andean music. A Spanish version of the song, entitled "Suerte" ("Luck"), lyrically discusses how fortunate Shakira is to have found her romantic partner.

Upon its release, "Whenever, Wherever" received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who complimented its production. The song became her breakthrough hit in the United States, peaking at number six on the Billboard Hot 100. In doing so, it became her most successful single in the country, though it was eventually surpassed after "Hips Don't Lie" peaked at number one on the chart in 2006. The track additionally topped charts in twenty-nine nations, including in her native Colombia and the majority of Latin America and Spain, Europe, and Oceania. It is recognized as one of Shakira's signature songs.

The music video was directed by Francis Lawrence in front of a green screen, and features Shakira surrounded by the earth's natural wonders.

The video became an instant hit on several music programs. It became Shakira's first video to retire on MTV's Total Request Live, and reached number one for a single week on the MuchMusic program Countdown. It won the 2002 Latin Grammy Award for "Best Short Form Music Video."
