Shakira phoned into On Air with Ryan Seacrest after premiering her new track featuring Rihanna, “Can’t Remember to Forget You.” The songstress reveals that when it came to collaborating with RiRi she was nervous at first that it wouldn’t be able to happen:
“We’re both from the Caribbean, so I always thought we had this common ground and this song is pretty reggae, but it also has that rock attitude that I think Rihanna has, so that’s why I thought she was the natural choice for collaboration on this record, but I also thought it was a little bit of a challenge to get her to record this track because she’s so busy,” Shakira admits. ”I honestly thought it’d never happen, but I said, ‘I’m going to send it to her and see what happens.’ And she heard the record and she loved it and she said she was on board and I was the happiest girl alive!” The Voice coach explains the hit new track “is about that guy that gets under your skin that you can’t leave alone and I think that every woman has been through that …we can relate … but this song is not exactly a reflection of my life right now.”
Shakira has opened up about her new collaboration with Rihanna and says working with the “Diamonds” singer was “utopia”.
Shakira releases her new single “Can’t Remember To Forget You” next Monday (January 13) with Rihanna on guest vocals and says the pair got on incredibly well in the recording studio.
“Working with her was utopia,” Shakira reveals in the February issue of Glamour magazine. “She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls,” Shakira explained. “The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves, she was a sweet teacher,” the ‘She Wolf’ singer added.
Rihanna has confirmed details about her upcoming collaboration with Shakira. RiRi retweeted a message posted online that announced the title as “Can’t Remember To Forget You” and a premiere date of January 13, next Monday!
Shakira shot the music video last month. Video director Joseph Kahn tweeted today: “Third time working with Rihanna and she gets hotter each time. It’s kind of superhuman.”
Pitbull previously revealed the pair had recorded a song together, after he explained that he originally wanted Rihanna to feature on his latest single “Timber”.
