The duo that is Shakira and Rihanna are a match made in international heaven, and their new video for Shakira's single “Can’t Remember to Forget You” is not one to be missed.
The video begins with Shakira dancing and singing around on a bed at a bottom of a stairwell, dressed in a white mesh dress. It then flashes over to the sultry Columbian on a black and white striped bed, in only a black body suit and heels.
After you’ve picked yourself up off the floor, the video just keeps getting better. One scene is of Shakira in a pool wearing nude-colored clothing as well as another scene of her in a red dress. And if that wasn't enough, a silhouette of Rihanna joins in as she walks down a hallway in a frilly black bodysuit. The scenes go back and forth between the two, and the two smoking cigars on the striped bed.
The song itself is a good mix of the two singers' styles and their different approaches to the song. The reggae-inspired feel mixed with rock gives the song a unique sound, which will please fans of both vocalists. At the end of the video, Shakira even rocks out in a pool with electric guitars and drums.
“Can’t Remember to Forget You” is the first single off of Shakira’s upcoming self-titled album, which is her first with Universal label RCA. It's set for release on March 25.
