Shakira and Rihanna Team Up For New Single, ‘Can’t Remember to Forget’

By Annie Reuter

The rumors are true.

Shakira and Rihanna have collaborated on a new track titled “Can’t Remember to Forget,” slated for release next week. Pitbull mentioned the news last month that the two singers were working together, but neither Shakira or Rihanna confirmed it, even after a 30-second snippet of the song leaked in December.

Prompted by a fan tweet, Rihanna finally took to Twitter today (Jan. 6) to let fans know the song will be out next Monday.

The song is expected to serve as the first single off Shakira’s new album out this spring, her follow-up to 2010’s Sale el Sol. 

Last month, Shakira took to Twitter to let fans know she just finished the music video for her first single with director Joseph Kahn (Mariah Carey and Miguel‘s “#Beautiful,” Eminem and Rihanna‘s “Love the Way You Lie”).

Shakira isn’t the only one working on new music, though. Rih Rih will also be headed to the studio with DJ Mustard. In an interview with MTV, the DJ confirmed the news.

“I’m finna go in [the studio] with Rihanna,” he said. “I’m just doing what I think she would like, and if she don’t like it, we’ll just figure out something else in the studio, and I’ll just keep making beats till we figure it out.”
