Shakira has done some duets in the past that are pretty good, but for some reason the one with Rihanna is a little better than the rest. Don’t ask, we’re not sure why we like the catchy song with the weird title so much.
Check the video which features Shakira and Rihanna doing what they do best; singing, dancing, prancing around half-naked while gyrating on a wall.
“Can’t Remember to Forget” will be featured on Shakira’s upcoming tenth album and has already made its way to Number 28 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The song reached the Number One spot on Billboard Social 50 which ranks the most popular artist on social media platforms like YouTube, Vevo, Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud, Wikipedia, Myspace and Instagram.
Last week, it was revealed that a collaboration between Shakira and Rihanna would be in our near future and now the song has finally been released.
The song is titled, “Can’t Remember to Forget” premiered on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show to bring a little bit of south of the border sunshine to the otherwise grime Monday.
The full track can be heard below:
On January 6, Rihanna had posted on her Instagram the news in a cryptic way that featured two chairs baring the superstars’ names on them and the caption, “One. Week. Countdown.” A few days later, the Barbados pop star released another picture, the official cover art for the single featuring both her and Shakira.
“Working with her was utopia,” Shakira revealed during and interview for the January 14th issue of Glamour. “She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both basically just Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real.”
So what do you guys think? Did the Caribbean girls get it right?
