Typical. You wait for one superstar diva to drop a new single and two come along at once. The amazing Shakira recently confirmed that she’ll be dropping her new single on January 13th… That’s this Monday!

Not only that, but none other than Rihanna herself will be featuring on the track! The single is called ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’ and is produced by Kid Harpoon who has worked with the likes of Eliza Doolittle, Foxes, Jessie Ware and Florence and the Machine. The track will be the lead single from Shakira’s as yet untitled new album, expected in Spring 2014. The lady herself tweeted back in December that accompanying Joseph Khan (Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, Eminem) directed video has already been completed so we imagine it won’t be long until it premieres.
It’s been almost four years since Shakira released her last English language album ‘She Wolf’ which the spawned the title track and the Neptunes produced banger ‘Did It Again’ so we have high hopes.
The ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer will be also be returning as a coach on The Voice US this Spring so it looks like she’ll have a busy schedule on her hands. Glad to have you back, Shak!
