Shakira and Rihanna want to make sure you don’t forget their duet officially hits the streets on Monday. The two pop stars shared the artwork for their collaboration “Can’t Remember To Forget You” on Thursday (January 9).
“Only FOUR days until ’Can’t Remember To Forget You’ with Rihanna !! Here’s the single artwork…. #soexcited Shak #rihanna #shakira #cantremembertoforgetyou#crtfy,” Shakira shared on Instagram.
The photo features Rih lying on her side with her head in Shakira’s lap, both looking glamorous in black. Shakira has on a bra-type top, while Rih is in a strapless bodysuit. They each are wearing lots of statement jewelry, including chunky bracelets and necklaces.
And if you think the women look like besties in that photo, it’s because they had quite the bonding session while recording the track.
“[W]orking with [Rihanna] was utopia. She’s the sexiest woman on the planet,” Shakira told Glamour, which hits newsstands January 14. “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.”
“Can’t Remember to Forget You” is due out January 13. It will be featured on Shakira’s upcoming album, which is the follow-up to 2010’s Sale el Sol. The Colombian-born pop star has yet to announce when the album will be released.
In addition to new music, she will also to return to “The Voice” when the new season kicks off on February 24. It will mark her second season on the hit NBC show. She’s back again with Usher, taking Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera’s spots.
