Shakira & Rihanna: ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’ [music]
Shakira marked a date for her highly-awaited return to the music scene. After several delays finally it’s here! The new single was released on digital outlets on January 13, 2014.
It’s officially called “Can’t Remember to Forget You“, and it has the guest vocals of pop star Rihanna. This is too much!
The song was co-written by Shakira and Rihanna with the collaboration of John Hill, Tom Hull, Daniel Alexander Ledinsky and Swedish singer-songwriter Erik Hassle, known by his European smash single ‘Hurtful‘, released in 2008.
The official video was recorded between 6 and 8 of December. Shakira confirmed that the video was directed by Joseph Kahn on Twitter.
The track produced by Shakira, John Hill and Kid Harpoon is influenced by the Jamaican Rocksteady meets Ska, used on No Doubt’s latest studio album “Push and Shove“, released in 2012. Shakira moves away from the more commercial pop dance sound, and returns betting on a pop rock style, something closer to her beginnings in the music world.
“Can’t Remember to Forget You” is confirmed a the lead single from Shakira’s upcoming tenth studio album scheduled to be released on digital retailers on March 25, 2014 via RCA and Sony Latin Iberica.
