FIRST LISTEN: Shakira & Rihanna Duet on 'Can't Remember to Forget You'
Below, get a first listen to Shakira's new single 'Can't Remember To Forget You' featuring Rihanna. The highly-anticipated duet, which is the lead single from Shakira's upcoming studio album, premiered today, Monday (Jan. 13) on Ryan Seacrest's syndicated radio show.
The album is Shakira's first English-language LP since 2009's "She Wolf". The still-untitled work will be released on March 25th from RCA Records/Sony Latin Iberia. The Colombian superstar and 'Voice' judge collaborates with Greg Kurstin, Steve Mac, Mark Bright, Busbee and the Messengers on the project.
Shakira released her first studio albums, Magia and Peligro, in the early 1990s. She rose to prominence in Latin America with her major-label debut, Pies Descalzos (1996), and her fourth album, Dónde Están los Ladrones (1998).
Shakira entered the English-language market with her fifth album, Laundry Service (2001), which has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. Its lead single, "Whenever, Wherever", became the best-selling single of 2002. Her success was solidified with her sixth and seventh albums Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 and Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 (2005), the latter of which spawned the best-selling song of the 21st century, "Hips Don't Lie". Shakira's eighth and ninth albums, She Wolf (2009) and Sale el Sol (2010), received critical praise but suffered from limited promotion due to her strained relationship with label Epic Records.
Her official song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", became the biggest-selling World Cup song of all time. With over 550 million views, its music video is the eighth most-watched video on YouTube. Since 2013, Shakira has served as a coach on the American version of The Voice, having appeared in two of its six seasons.
Shakira has won many awards including five MTV Video Music Awards, two Grammy Awards, eight Latin Grammy Awards, seven Billboard Music Awards, twenty-eight Billboard Latin Music Awards and has been Golden Globe-nominated. She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and she is the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, having sold a total of 125 million records worldwide, over 70 million albums and 55 million singles.Her U.S. album sales stand at 9.9 million
