The Socialite finds out what went on Behind the Scenes of the making of the ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’ collaboration featuring Rihanna and Shakira, check it out…
Instead of giving fans the expected, gorgeous duo Rihanna and Shakira spice things up in their latest collaboration by combining the unique sounds of reggae and rock.
“I should you let you go / But when you look at me / The only memory is us kissing in the moonlight,” Shakira laments. Rihanna follows as the bouncy ska beat returns singing, “I go back again / Fall of the train / Land back in his bead / Repeat yesterday’s mistakes.”
The sexy track finds the duo having selective memories when it comes to lovers they know they should cut loose but just can’t seem to leave behind and move on.
“I’m going through a completely different experience right in relation to the song. The song is about that guy that just gets under your skin and you can’t leave alone. I think every woman has been through that. This song is not exactly a reflection of my personal life right now” says Shakira.
Produced by Shakira, John Hill (Santigold, Jay-Z, The Vaccines) and Kid Harpoon (Florence + The Machine, Calvin Harris) and co-written by Tom Hull, Daniel Alexander and Erik Hassle, “Can’t Remember” is the lead single from the Latin pop star’s forthcoming tenth studio album.
Working with Rihanna was utopia for Shakira as she oozes compliments chatting about what it was like to collaborate with the infamous songstress. “She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher” says Shakira.
The currently untitled project will be her first English set since 2009′s She Wolf. Set to release March 25th, the album will feature additional collabs with Steve Mac (Kelly Clarkson, One Direction), Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts), Busbee (P!nk, Lady Antebellum, Katy Perry), The Messengers (Pitbull, Chris Brown, Christina Aguilera) and Greg Kurstin (Kelly Clarkson, P!nk).
The music video for “Can’t Remember to Forget You” will be released soon but in the meantime check out what went on Behind the Scenes during the making of the video:
