Can’t Remember to Stop Watching Shakira’s New Music Video!

Shakira + Rihanna = YES PLEASE!

Thursday evening Shakira released the music video to her newest single “Can’t Remember to Forget You” featuring Rihanna. What more could we ask for besides two of pop’s sexiest females together on one screen? Fans of the two eagerly awaited this steamy music video – and it definitely did not disappoint.

Though the lyrics of the song translate that they are unable to move on from a past lover, the video makes it clear they are doing just fine on their on. In fact, there is no male actor seen at all in the entire music video. Instead the video consists of Shakira and Rihanna wearing next to nothing (at one point nothing) rolling around in a bed, smoking cigars, and seductively caressing each other.  Which I guess explains the 5.5 million views it already has. Who knows maybe this steamy video will break the Vevo record?

The video opens with Shakira in a see –through white sweater and underwear writhing around on a bed. The video then cuts to Shakira in a cheeky black bathing suit right before it shows her almost naked in a pool, with only her hair covering her chest. And then the video cuts to Shakira in an almost completely see through red dress dancing on a wall. And this is all before Rihanna even appears.

Rihanna then comes in wearing a black leotard walking down a hallway before joining Shakira in the cabana wearing a black cheeky bathing suit similar to Shakira’s, where they then smoke cigars. Then the two of them both begin to dance against walls from different points of view with some coordinated, very seductive choreography.

They then return back to the cabana where they begin to caress each other as they sing together about a man they can’t seem to escape. Then the music video shows off Shakira’s musical side and features her playing the electric guitar and the drums. As the video comes to a close, Shakira and Rihanna ditch  their clothes and come together in a close embrace.


This is the first single off of Shakira’s self-title album ‘Shakira’ which is set to be released on March 25th. These next two months need to fly by because I can’t wait to see what else is in store for this album! I can only hope for another Shakira/Rihanna collaboration in the near future because this one definitely left me wanting more.
