Shakira and Rihanna's New Hit Can't Remember to Forget You premiered Monday, Jan. 13, on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM radio show.
The song expresses more of a Latin salsa vibe, which is related to Shakira's previous hits but something a little new for Rihanna.
Can't Remember to Forget You is about being with someone but trying to get away from that person and repeating the same mistakes. Shakira opens the track singing, "I left a note on my bedpost, said not to repeat yesterday's mistakes, what I tend to do when it comes to you, I see only the good, selective memory."
When the chorus comes, Shakira sings about how she wants to forget this guy she's with, but can't because of their memories: "I keep forgetting I should let you go. But when you look at me, the only memory is us kissing in the moonlight."
Rihanna sings about repeating mistakes: "I go back again, fall of the train, land in his bed, repeat yesterday's mistakes, what I'm trying to say is not to forget, you see only the good, selective memory."
The pair then repeat the chorus of "I keep forgetting I should let you go."
The track is currently available for purchase on iTunes. It is set to be featured on Shakira's upcoming studio album, which has yet to receive a release date.
Shakira's previous hits include Loca, Whenever Wherever and She Wolf. Rihanna's previous hits include We Found Love, Where Have You Been and Diamonds.
