On the new ska-influenced single, “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” Shakira talks about the man she can’t get off her mind singing, “When you look at me/ My only memory/ Is us kissing in the moonlight.” Listen to the track below:
Never one to play coy, Rihanna joins in to talk about her “selective memory” over a guy she shouldn’t go back to, telling Shakira, “I go back again/Fall off the train/Land in his bed/Repeat yesterday’s mistakes.”
In a recent interview with Glamour, Shakira said working with RiRi, who she recently filmed a video for the song with, “was utopia.”
“She’s the sexiest woman on the planet,” Shakira said. “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.”
Shakira’s as-yet-untitled followup to 2010’s Sale el Sol is slated to drop in early 2014. The singer will also rejoin The Voice, taking over once again for Christina Aguilera, for the show’s upcoming sixth season, debuting February 24 on NBC.
