Rihanna confirmed her rumored collaboration with Shakira via Twitter on Monday.
After a fan tweeted the star with the song's title, Can't Remember To Forget, and the release date for Jan. 14, Rihanna corrected him.
"ACTUALLY I just found out you'll have it by the 13th! #1week," Rihanna tweeted about her first duet with Shakira.
To that, the excited fan responded: "@rihanna @shakira OMG! A dream come true. I'm starting to count the hours to hear this masterpiece. #Shakihanna."
Rumors of a collaboration between the two superstars was first reported in December by the Colombian gossip site ElTiempo.com.
Shakira's reported body double, Alexita Ortiz, later posted a tweet which pretty much confirmed the claim. The tweet, however, has since been removed.
"Working on set with Shakira:) As her stand in for the new music video featuring Rihanna," she tweeted along with a photo of herself posed next to Shakira.
On Dec. 8, Shakira herself confirmed that she was working on a new project when she tweeted, "I Just finished the video for my first single with director Joseph Kahn!"
The new song is reportedly the first single from Shakira's upcoming album, which she initially had to postpone for other work and family obligations.
"It's coming out as soon as it's ready," she told reporters about her new album in May while promoting The Voice. "I was actually working on this album before I got the call from the NBC people to do The Voice so I had to kind of stop working on my album and also because I had to deliver a baby. So now I have to get back to both things, being a mother and also finishing my album."
