I would like to know how you would translate "give it up to me" that is the title of Shakira's new song...
context:
"You can have it all
Anything you want you can make it yours
Anything you want in the world
Anything you want in the world
Give it up to me"

my try: "dejamelo a mi"

thanks!

    It is more than just giving, it is surrendering. In this case, since it is a love song, she is asking someone to surrender to her romantically.

    Another line in the song is "What you give is exactly what you receive." So she is saying if he wants her, he has to give himself first.
