Bump Beyoncé: Shakira Bumps And Grinds With Rihanna In New Music Video
Rihanna reminded us not too long ago that she has no intentions to be anyone’s role model as she recently teamed up with Colombian singer Shakira’s sexy new video “Can’t Remember to Forget You”. Shakira is no stranger to gyrating against other music giants as this video is slightly reminiscent to her feature on Beyonce’s “Beautiful Liar” a few years ago.
“Can’t Remember to Forget You” promises more of the same twerking and twisting that both Shakira and Rihanna are famous for as both ladies bump and grind on the wall, then on a duvet as well as on each other. While the song is a pretty standard pop track that features Shakira rocking out on electric guitar towards the end, the video is anything but disappointing. Shakira locks down the sex appeal in the first few scenes before Rihanna even makes an appearance. But unlike “Beautiful Liar” this video isn’t really bringing anything all that new. It’s plenty sexy as the girls slither and slide in complementary red and black lace attire, but that doesn’t really require nearly as much effort as the dance sequence that had every fan within reach of “The Beyonce Experience” dying to get their belly dance game up. Rihanna does try her hand again at twerking and we all all know how that worked out in her “Pour it Up” video. Both women are however, undeniably sexy and the track is kind of catchy too.
The 36-year old revealed how much she enjoyed working with whom she calls “the sexiext woman on the planet” in a recent interview. She gushed in the February edition of Glamour magazine:
“And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher.”
The video debuted this past Thursday and hit almost 2 million views within hours. “Can’t Remember to Forget You” will appear on Shakira’s forthcoming album, “Shakira” hitting stores in March. Until then, check out the video to see the Colombian and Bajan beauties getting their sexy on.
