It’s here! Two of the world’s biggest and most talented divas, Rihanna and Shakira release their highly anticipated collaboration, “Can’t Remember to Forget You.” With a rock ‘n’ roll edge and heavy guitar lines, the song’s high-energy vibe makes it an early contender for the biggest hit of 2014. No one can deny that Rih and Shakira know how to deliver real jams on their own, together they’re unstoppable. The two are decked out in all black and colorful stones. Black spandex is everything! Fearless style with glam jewelry makes the cover art unforgettable.
What can you say about Shakira? She’s sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, racking up 10 Latin and American Grammys. She has her name on the biggest selling single of the this century, “Hips Don’t Lie.” Oh, did we mention she also started The Barefoot Foundation to help underprivileged children receive education? She’s an icon, a mother, a philanthropist and still finds time to get into the studio with one of the fastest rising stars on earth.
Shakira told Glamour magazine working with Rihanna was, “Utopia. She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher.” Well, the chemistry is definitely apparent. The ladies go back and forth about a guy they just can’t forget, they’d do “anything for that boy.” Who’s that boy?! Rih’s Island sound combined with Shakira’s Latin vocals create an up-tempo hit we’ve been playing on repeat all week.
The song will be featured on Shakira’s upcoming album, a follow up to Sale el Sol. Listen above and head to iTunes to buy the single!
