The wait is finally over!

Shakira and Rihanna‘s collaboration, “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” debuted this morning on On Air with Ryan Seacrest and it’s all we could’ve imagined and more.

The jam, which is the perfect blend of pop and rock with a hint of reggae, is about that one guy that gets under your skin and you can’t let go of.

With lyrics like, “I keep forgetting I should let you go / But when you look at me, the only memory, is us kissing in the moonlight” it’s a song girls everywhere can relate to.

When it came to working together, Shakira revealed she wanted Rihanna on the song, but was nervous she’d be too busy. In an interview with Glamour, she also described working with Rihanna as “utopia.”

Take a listen below:

“Can’t Remember to Forget You”

I left a note on my bedpost
Said not to repeat yesterday’s mistakes
What I tend to do when it comes to you
I see only the good, selective memory

The way he makes me feel yeah, gotta hold on me
I’ve never met someone so different
Oh here we go
He a part of me now, he a part of me
So where you go I follow
Ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
Ohohohoh
I keep forgetting I should let you go
But when you look at me, the only memory, is us kissing in the moonlight
Ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
Ooooh
Can’t remember to forget you

I go back again,
fall off the train,
land in his bed,
repeat yesterday’s mistakes
What I’m trying to say is not to forget,
You see only the good, selective memory

The way he makes me feel like,
the way he makes me feel
I never seemed to act so stupid
Oh here we go…
he a part of me now he a part of me
so where he goes I follow follow

Ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
I keep forgetting I should let you go
But when you look at me, the only memory, is us kissing in the moonlight
Ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you

I rob and I kill to keep him with me
I do anything for that boy
I’d give my last dime to hold him tonight
I do anything for that boy…

I rob and I kill to keep him with me
I do anything for that boy
I’d give my last dime to hold him tonight
I do anything for that boy…

Ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
I keep forgetting I should let you go
But when you look at me, the only memory, is us kissing in the moonlight
Ohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
But when you look at me, the only memory, is us kissing in the moonlight
Ohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
