Shakira on Rihanna Duet: ‘Chemistry Was So Good and So Real’


We are counting down the days until the ShakiraRihanna duet, “Can’t Remember to Forget,” is released on January 13.

Although there aren’t too many details yet on what the song will sound like, the Colombian superstar did give up some behind-the-scenes tidbits to Glamour magazine for its February issue.

“Working with her was utopia,” explains Shakira. “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.”

“Can’t Remember to Forget” will be the first single off Shakira’s upcoming English-language album.

The same day that Rihanna spilled the beans on the super-collabo on Twitter, Shakira posted what is believed to be the single’s cover art on Instagram.
