Shakira‘s highly anticipated duet with Rihanna will be the first single from the Colombian singer’s forthcoming album, and it’s set for release next week. According to RiRi herself, “Can’t Remember To Forget” will drop January 13. After a man in the know tweeted that it would premiere on January 14, Rihanna retweeted and replied, “ACTUALLY I just found out you’ll have it by the 13th!”
The two stars were rumored to be working together for Shakira’s new album, and Pitbull accidentally confirmed the collaboration. Last month, Sony announced a single would be coming in January, and Shakira herself tweeted that a Joseph Kahn-directed video was in the works, but both kept the Rihanna angle under wraps.
