Shakira & Rihanna Go Girl-on-Girl for ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’ Video
When two pop stars like Shakira and Rihanna start writhing around on a bed in a sea of skin and black bathing suits, you pay attention. In the new video for the Colombian singer’s song ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You,’ there’s that steamy visual and more.
The glamorous video is a melee of sensual imagery. There’s Shakira’s introduction on a mattress wearing white mesh, Rihanna strutting down a hallway, the Bajan beauty’s wall-twerk session, the pair smoking cigars and the duo groping each other — seriously, it almost never ends.
Rihanna keeps her hair dark and long for the clip — a demure choice in the collection that is her hair styles. The ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer goes back to her rocker roots in a pool sequence while simultaneously managing her vixen appeal. All in all, the ladies bring it on for a piece to look at for days.
“This song ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’ combines both the reggae and rock spirit. That’s why I thought that Rihanna was perfect. She was the other half for this,” said Shakira about the ska and reggae-infused record. The song entered at No. 28 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is appearing on Shakira’s new self-titled album, due March 25.
