Rihanna and Shakira Set to Release Collaboration Next Week

Rihanna and Shakira

Rihanna closed out the year with her 13th No. 1 single, and she already eyeing her next No. 1. RiRi has teamed up with fellow Roc Nation bombshell Shakira on the Colombian singer’s new single.

The song, entitled “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” will premiere on January 13, Rihanna revealed on Twitter.

She confirmed the news by retweeting a fan who wrote, “14-01-2014 :: @shakira – Can’t Remember To Forget (feat. @rihanna ).”

RiRi responded, “ACTUALLY I just found out you’ll have it by the 13th! #1week.”

The song is the first single from Shakira’s upcoming album, due in early 2014 on RCA/Sony Latin Iberia. She will also return for a second season on NBC’s “The Voice,” premiering February 24.

Shakira previously collaborated with another pop megastar, Beyoncé, on the 2007 hit “Beautiful Liar,” which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Meanwhile, Rihanna’s collaboration with Eminem, “The Monster,” remains No. 1 for a fourth week on the Hot 100.

UPDATE: Shakira has confirmed the January 13 release date, tweeting, “You guys ready? Jan 13 is almost here!”

Can't Remember to Forget You

    @from france, It’s just her songs are getting worse yet they get overplayed more on the radio. She used to be a good reggae/dancehall/ R&B singer. Now she’s just another generic electropop singer that too many people love. Even when she just features in a song like Eminem’s LTWYL and Monster (LTWYL was good but Monster was shit), her songs go no. 1 each time while other, better artists are still struggling right now.

    I really like Shakira a lot and have for a long time, but her voice w/Rihanna’s….

    Rihanna needs to take a break from the music industry. I feel like she needs to take a page out of Beyoncé’s book And take a break for lease two years. Don’t get me wrong I’m huge Rihanna fan. But it seems to me the struggle to stay Relevant is damn near hard these days for an artist of her caliber. To me Rihanna is becoming more of a gimmick. When is she going to going to studio and make a real album that’s my question to her??? I really do think Rihanna needs to start over with a new team. She needs to focus on revamping her image. Rihanna needs a new production team and songwriters. Her music has been sounding the same lately. Her and her management needs to sit down with the head of DEF jam and focus on developing a body of work that will stand the test of time. Not these repetitive songs and albums that she keeps coming out with where the Adele when you need her?

    @Jay Scorpio Navy General, “Real”??? Just because a Hot Pocket somewhat resembles it in taste, that doesn’t make it pizza.

    I actually am not saying it to hate on her, but Rihanna’s music is a lot of things – “real” is not one of them. What she puts out is the McDonald’s menu of music, heavily processed and pre-formed, but therein lies her success. McDonald’s isn’t hurting for buyers either, but that doesn’t mean the food is good or even real. It is, however, an incredible simulation and enough people don’t care either way, so long as it satisfies their needs.

    Looks like meme will do ANYTHING to defend Rihanna’s not washed up.. or becoming washed up. I get the feeling, by the end of this year, everyone’s gonna get tired of Rihanna. Rihanna needs to have a grown up album, and be more honest. Like… write her own songs? That’d be more honest. And actually get into the production of one of her album instead of being a face and a puppet to the industry.

    Her best work was Good Girl Gone Bad, and she herself said in an interview that she actually invested herself into each of those songs. I got the theme that she was giving.

    Rated R was okay. Loud felt impersonal. After that, I stopped paying attention.

Yes Beyonce has a complete body of work out at number but where her singles at? Oh ok! An album don’t mean shit if the songs aren’t dynamic (not saying her songs bad because i do have my favs like XO and Mine). However, Beyonce’s “complete body of work” as you called it mostly went #1 because of the anticipation for her album and the fact that it’s visual with all the music videos! Songs like Haunted and Ghost may be visually artistic but not Hits! Most of her songs are ok to me! The only Hits i can see from this album are XO, Mine, and Drunk in Love everything are ok!

    You called it hustle we called ambition! It’s not nasally, it’s called singing with an accent! Respect other ppl’s culture bitch! That same talking/singing thing Rihanna does is what Beyonce is currently using on her album now (i.e. Mine, XO, Drunk In Love with the yelling, Yonce, Partition, and Flawless).

    King Fierce Reply:

    @The Shady Truth, you say beyonce is copying Rihanna on these songs but for some reason it’s easier to believe beyonce acting Gansta than it is Rihanna. Say what you want but ri will always be a puppet. Also there are plenty of hits on BEYONCÉ and seeing as the singles have only been available for individual purchase for only a week, I suggest you wait a little before you prematurely ejaculate such nonsense. Another thing, the only thing that Rihanna has is number one singles and she still doesn’t have the most compared to Mariah Carey and the beetles. Meanwhile beyonce has more number one albums, more awards, more success, and is an overall better artist. She choose to go against the formula and do what is true to her. The only reason Rihanna is doing well on singles is because she is too afraid to stray from the pop formula. If you put your artistic integrity on the band burner and you do what everyone wants of course you will have so many number ones. And even that isn’t working for her anymore, the other singles off unapologetic flopped and truly the only reason Monster is doing so well is because it is the bastard child of every number one pop hit for the past five years. Rihanna could never do what Beyonce did three weeks ago. 410,000 copies in one day, 3 weeks at number with a weekly average of 300,000 copies, Gurl praise your RiRi all you want but she doesn’t measure up in any way to Mrs. Carter.
