Now sisters in the ‘ROC’, Rihanna and Shakira now find themselves housed by a mega label on course for world domination…at least as far as entertainment goes.

Now watch ‘Timbre’ Rapper Pitbull confirm the duet during an interview with ‘Kidd Nation’, seemingly doing so without realising he was doing so.

Despite the Platinum flavoured success of ‘The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2)’, one glaring fact remains – the LP has failed to yield hit singles in the way its processor has.

A fact some argue is due to the cooling of JT’s initial comeback buzz, while others point to ‘2 of 2’s point-black inferiority.

Whatever the case, it appears the 32-year-old is listening to the feedback. For, it has been revealed that the singer is currently toying with idea of re-visiting ‘1 of 1’ for future singles.
