Rihanna & Shakira Release Sexy ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’ Single

Mon, January 13, 2014 9:12am EDT by 29 Comments

It’s here — the glorious day has finally arrived! The two sexy singers dropped their huge collaboration on Jan. 13 and it’s even bigger and better than we imagined. Listen to the song below!

Rihanna and Shakira teaming up sounds like something we created in our dreams — but it’s a real life thing. And the two sexy megastars met their high expectations on Jan. 13, releasing a banging single called “Can’t Remember to Forget You” on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show.

Rihanna & Shakira Release ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’

With a bit of a reggae beat and some upbeat flavor, Shakira starts off by taking the wheel. Her iconic voice soars on the track, as the chorus adds a little more edge to the song.

Things really heat up when Rihanna comes in. Her smooth voice plays off of Shakira’s perfectly and the energy she brings into the second verse is undeniable with her singing lyrics like, “The only memory, is you and me, kissing in the moonlight.” The themes of not being able to quit a boyfriend no matter what obviously hit pretty close to home for RiRi — there’s no doubt that her on-again, off-again relationship with Chris Brown drips all over this song.

See the song’s full lyrics here:

[Shakira]

I left a note on my bedpost
Said not to repeat
Yesterday’s mistakes
What I tend to do
When it comes to you
I see only the good
Selective memory
The way he makes me feel, yeah
Gotta hold on me
I’ve never met someone so different

Oh here we go
He a part of me now
He a part of me
So where you go I follow, follow, follow

Oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
I can’t remember to forget you
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
I keep forgetting I should let you go
But when you look at me
The only memory is us kissing in the moonlight
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
I can’t remember to forget you

[Rihanna]

I go back again
Fall off the train
Land in his bed
Repeat yesterday’s mistakes
What I’m trying to say is not to forget
You see only the good, selective memory

The way he makes me feel like
The way he makes me feel
I never seemed to act so stupid
Oh here we go
He a part of me now
He a part of me
So where he goes I follow

[Chorus]

Oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
I can’t remember to forget you
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
I keep forgetting I should let you go
But when you look at me
The only memory is us kissing in the moonlight
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
I can’t remember to forget you

I rob and I kill to keep him with me
I do anything for that boy
I’d give my last dime to hold him tonight
I do anything for that boy

I rob and I kill to keep him with me
I do anything for that boy
I’d give my last dime to hold him tonight
I do anything for that boy

Oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
I can’t remember to forget you
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
I keep forgetting I should let you go
But when you look at me
The only memory is us kissing in the moonlight
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
I can’t remember to forget you

But when you look at me
The only memory is us kissing in the moonlight
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
Oh, oh, oooh, oh
I can’t remember to forget you

Rihanna & Shakira: A Collaboration Made In Heaven

The two South of the Border hotties — Rihanna from Barbados and Shakira from Colombia — began teasing their collaboration on Jan. 6. Instagramming a picture of chairs with the stars’ names on them, Rihanna wrote, “One. Week. Countdown.”

Then on Jan. 9, Rihanna posted the single’s cover art. Did we mention it’s sexy? Not only was Rihanna seductively draped over Shakira, but both singers donned sultry black dresses that exposed ample amounts of cleavage.

“Working with her was utopia,” Shakira said in the Jan. 14 issue of Glamour. “She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both basically just Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real.” Well, no wonder why this song is the bomb!

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Listen to the song below and let us know!

This song is beautiful it speaks from the heart, I love this song i give them credit for a wonderful well done song. I can hear the words it a love song to a person you no mean the world to you and even though they made mistake you still love them and want to forgive them and start over again there nothing you would not do for them, It speak to your heart, if you even been in a relationship with someone who you truly love you will understand a beautiful love song. Great ladies well none job Rihanna her voices wow Great. This song will touch many of hearts. Rihanna have talented and dont mine sharing it with another young who have talented as well. Rihanna is truly bless.

didn’t they have a supervisor?
The song might be good for Shakira. But it is a waste of Rihanna’s rhytmic presence.
Should “selective memory” now be the next stage after “figure it out”?
Why should you follow? he is following you anyway. as a part of you. isn’t he? stupid text.
Shakira is suspect. Aqua bearing, Pisces flowing.
Here another stupid line: “I rob and I kill to keep him with me”. I mean, what does she aim?

ok, I did not like Drunk In Love first. but now I like it. maybe this song will sound some day nicer to me.

This song sucks!!!! This would have to be a subtitle song in order to listen to it. Stop giving AUTOTUNE Rihanna credit for helping a song. All her songs dont require talent!! Just a lot of AUTOTUNE her concerts prove that a many times over.

I love this song and without Rihanna on it it wouldn’t get that many hits. She was smart to put Rihanna on it and watch it rise to the top numbers thanks to Rihanna.

I heard the song and I dont like it. It a Shakira song, its not something that Rihanna would usually sing on her own. Shakira needs Rihannna’s help she cant succeed on her own??

Love this song its so good Rihanna and shakira really complement each other well although rihanna’s verse from my perspective has lyrical hints on her feelings about ex boyfriends and i think in particular Chris brown its better to put your pains into music but i hope that she finds love and happiness because i feel she deserves it #love rih❤

Good song, I’ve listened to it several times. The fact is that Rihanna can sing on all types of songs, slow or fast, her range is so good. I want to see her collaborate on a love song next with a male singer. I think she would sing well with Miguel or Justin Timberlake for a love song.

Rihanna is what make it pops! But I prefer her better doing a duet with male vocalist! If her and Chris could had gotten over their differences, (without input from Drake and Kaeleeche) they could had put out a great video for the duet on Chris’s Album X……

Did anyone see that boy in DC court?…..He’s back to looking fine as hell and healthy, face is full just fine that’s all I got to say……Chris Brown is fine! And no! this is not an delusional Rih fan hoping for these two…..Just think they are great talented people that happens to Black in a white man’s world…..huh?…..where did that last part come from? LMMFAO!

Why would Drake even have an input in anything Rihanna wants to sing. Riri and Chris would take the world by storm if they ever did a song together, however Rihanna made it clear last year she would never do a song with him again.
