What did you think would happen when Shakira and Rihanna teamed up for a video?
Shakira dropped the music video for her single “Can’t Remember to Forget You” yesterday and the sultry piece featuring Rihanna already has well over 3 million views. In the clip directed by Joseph Kahn, Shakira and Rihanna rub on each other, abuse a lucky wall with their hips and smoke cigars together.
Shakira told VEVO of Rihanna’s guest spot, “Her voice in this song is just unreal ’cause she is reggae. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a female singer deliver her lines in a reggae song with such authenticity. I’m just over the moon to know that we did a video together and we did this song together.”
“Can’t Remember to Forget You” is the first single off of Shakira’s upcoming self-titled album set for a March 25 release.
