International sensation Rihanna and Latina goddess Shakira have teamed up for the ultimate collaboration. With a new single “Can’t Remember to Forget You” released on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show.
Mixing together Shakira’s iconic voice, remembered from “Hips Don’t Lie” and “Whenever, Wherever”, the song has a very reggae beat with hip hop it-girl Rihanna’s voice coming in on the second verse with great force. The combination of the two makes it a song that will not be forgotten.
Barbados-native Rihanna and Colombian Shakira have been working on the collaboration for a month, with the single cover art going live on January 9, both dressed in sultry black dresses.
“Working with her was utopia,” Shakira said in the January 14 issue of Glamour Magazine. “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.” It’s clear this mentality translated over to the music!
