Shakira and Rihanna Team Up to Make History

Shakira and Rihanna Team Up to Make History

Shakira and Rihanna’s long-anticipated duet has at last arrived: “Can’t Remember To Forget You,” the enjoyably grandiose lead single from Shakira’s forthcoming studio album, premiered Monday (Jan. 13).

After beginning with a decidedly ska-punk guitar riff, “Can’t Remember To Forget You” kicks into second gear during the first chorus, in which Shakira asserts over a chunky rock arrangement, “I keep forgetting I should let you go.” Rihanna then arrives to share in the heartbreak during the second verse, falling in line with Shakira’s breathy syllables while the duel vocal dynamism successfully amps up the drama.

Rihanna confirmed the release date of “Can’t Remember To Forget You” on Twitter last Monday, and the duo shared the official cover artwork days later.
