Was there ever any doubt that a collaboration between two of pop's sexiest stars was going to be smoking hot? Shakira and Rihanna teamed up for the duet "Can't Remember to Forget You," an earworm of a song about a woman who can't let go of a man who's bad news and keeps repeating her past mistakes.
The steamy new video features the Colombian superstar and the Barbadian bombshell writhing around in bed together wearing sexy black one-piece bathing suits. They also twerk suggestively against a wall and seductively share cigars. They even appear to take a few topless photos together.
In addition to their shared scenes, Shakira emerges solo from a steaming pool nearly naked while singing the upbeat number, and generates even more heat in bed scenes while wearing a white sweater and matching undies.
The clip is reminiscent of Shakira's duet with another pop diva – Beyoncé. Shakira and Queen Bey got pulses racing in their sexy video for "Beautiful Liar," which also features plenty of twerking and hip gyrating. The two pop stars frolic and writhe around on the floor together wearing skimpy black outfits, and it's often difficult to tell them apart with their matching black outfits and wavy golden manes.
Belly dancing and cavorting in the rain also factor into the video, as well as some incredible twerking, which Shakira mastered long before Miley Cyrus made it a household word.
The video for "Can't Remember to Forget You" has already racked up nearly 6 million views on YouTube since it was posted on Thursday, while "Beautiful Liar" has amassed nearly 70 million views since it came out in 2007. So which video is sexier? It's definitely a toss up!
"Can't Remember to Forget You" is the first single off of Shakira's forthcoming self-titled album, which is due to be released on March 25.
