Teaser: Shakira & Rihanna – ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’

Published: Wednesday 29th Jan 2014 by Sam

Roc Nation stars Shakira and Rihanna are set to unwrap the video for their brand new single ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’ tomorrow.

With the track having dropped out of the iTunes 100 US chart, the ladies are cranking promotional efforts into overdrive so as to resuscitate interest.

The latest teaser comes in the form a preview of the song’s visual. Check it out after the jump…

Hmm. We’ll hold judgement until seeing the clip in its entirety. That said…

    @Lovebird. I posted these videos for you. You’ve been pressed over Mariah as of late. Why? Is it because you can’t drag Beyonce now so you have to find someone else to pick on? know your place peasant.

  15. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 29, 2014

    “She Has 9,000 Copies Left To Go. (That Shouldn’t Take That Long) ;)”

    You’re still fabricating. She is 90,000 copies away from 5 million. stop lying, you already got caught.

  16. Tisha January 29, 2014

    Looks like it will be good, now will it bring that song back into the top 100? We shall see.

    Lesson learned for Shakira, don’t matter who’s on the damn track have the video and promo ready.

  17. Realest January 29, 2014

    If Shakira’s team was smart they would have just did what Missy Elliot did in her “lose control” video: paste her head on on a daners body as they dance! That way this generic BS song could AT LEAST have a high octane dance routine which we know Riri is incapable of putting on. Looks like they played to her (Riri) strengths- posing and modeling. For a song about “not forgetting” I sure “can’t remember” it alread!!!

  18. Marcus January 29, 2014

    (Sigh) Ok Slayriah, 90,000 Copies Away. (Which Still Won’t Take That Long To Do)

    Some Say 9,000, Some Say 90,000 <– (Going By Her Wiki Discography, It Is 90,000 Though).

  19. Let’s Be Real January 29, 2014

    So..this is going to be some lesbian type deal…mmmm…well ok

  20. Lovebird January 29, 2014

    I’m still wondering why people give my comments so much attention.

  21. Mark111 January 29, 2014


    I agree. Enough with the BS.

  22. Touché January 29, 2014

    No shade but the movements seems similar to Beautiful Liar.

  23. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 29, 2014


    I forgive you. You seem nice but just don’t be inflating her sales.BTW, If it doesn’t sell 5 million by the July, it’s a certified flop.

  24. Tutesy January 29, 2014

    Shakira and her ole tired slam the body against the wall moves, nothing new. Will like to see the dance moves Rih brings on though, cos its no secret that she can dance. # noshadebutshade#

  25. Tutesy January 29, 2014

    Meant to type, Rihanah can’t dance.

  26. Marcus January 29, 2014


    Understood. & I’m Hoping That It Can Cross The 5 Million Mark Earlier Than That 🙂

  27. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. January 29, 2014

    THIEVINGonce fans always lying about sales

    Mediatraffic confirms 2.4 million ww for BLEACHonce 😉

  28. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 29, 2014


    We’re all hoping that will happen (unlikely) + it’s her only album of Nielsen’s list of 200 best selling albums.

  29. beyugly January 29, 2014

    The video looks promising! There’s another version,Shakira and Rihanna shaking their a**.There will be some Caribbean dancing!!

  30. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) January 29, 2014

    Predictable… Overly sexual to compensate for that sh*t song with two goats screaming on it….

    Fat Ratchet Drunk Ho put on blast again

    Much has been written lately about Beyonce bursting out of the feminist closet with her latest album. “Did a baby make a feminist of Beyonce?” wondered the Telegraph, and, in spite of her 2013 dig at other industry successes with the repeated command that those ‘b******’ ‘bow down’, I wondered the same thing. Weeks later, her unarguably feminist essay for the Shriver report was revealed, and Bey’s feminist babe status was cemented. Damn right, Beyonce! Gender equality is a myth – and you, the 3.6 octave spanning voice of your generation, might just grab that great big reality some much deserved airtime.

    Nobody is perfect, but Beyonce’s next public move was a bad one. She lost the feminist game she was playing in one fell swoop.

    Beyonce and her husband, Jay-Z, performed their duet Drunk in Love at the Grammys on Sunday. When Beyonce released her new album in December last year, the song came under fire for Jay-Z’s lyric “I’m Ike Turner, turn up/Baby know I don’t play/Now eat the cake, Anna Mae”, a reference to a moment of domestic abuse displayed in the Tina Turner biopic What’s Love Got To Do With It when Ike forced Tina (who was born Anna Mae) to eat cake by shoving it into her face, and proceeded to assault an employee who tried to help her.

    In an unprecedented feminist move, Bang, a London-based radio station removed the lyric from the song before playing it, stating that the lyrics:

    imitate a scene of severe domestic violence… displaying promotion of domestic violence against women. In this light Bang [refuses] to play the song lyrics from henceforth on our station.

    I foolishly assumed, then, that in their performance at the Grammy Awards an all-repenting Jay-Z would have removed the offending lyric at his newly fiercely feminist wife’s behest. He’s an award winning rapper, after all; how hard could it possibly be for him to come up with three different verses that didn’t reference a relationship that featured r*** and brutal domestic violence?

    Apparently, it would be really difficult. So difficult, in fact, that Jay-Z would proceed to rap the lyric onstage beside his wife to an audience of 28.5 million. And what’s more? His wife, fresh from sampling the speech ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, stood next to him. She beamed as the line approached. And then… She sang it with him.

    Screw that. Screw the glamourisation of a marriage that required a wife to have corrective rhinoplasty to realign a nose beaten to a pulp over a period of years; of a wife who decided, in 1968, that suicide was her only refuge; of a husband so delusional that in his own memoirs, he stated, “Sure… There have been times when I punched her to the ground without thinking. But I have never beat her.”

    Beyonce: when you smile affectionately and sing along with that lyric, you are propagating a cycle of humiliation, of r***, of violence that is still horrifically real for women all over the world. The fact that Tina Turner broke the cycle by no means makes it acceptable for you to try to make her situation a s*** one.

    Know why? Because just like Tina, to this day, 85% of r**** women know their attackers. Because, although Tina reportedly narrowly avoided death, on average two women a week are still murdered by their partners. Because domestic abuse is an enormous societal problem.

    And already, your huge influence has further normalised this; already, on Twitter, your fans are ‘lol’ing at the lyric. The saddest part about this is that they know what it means. They’re tweeting things like, “Eat the cake anna mae?” … jay z is clearly beating on that h**.” About you. And they think it’s funny. They’re putting up giggly emoticons. They’re saying it is #Boss. It is not #Boss. It is violence against women.

    Your body confidence, your empowerment, is admirable, and really does have a place in the beautiful, evolving feminist fight that we find ourselves in. However, it is not about picking and choosing your moments; not at this level. Trivialising domestic violence, standing by your man whilst he makes Anna Mae’s cake sound like something you want to eat, is not OK.

    a stylish video will not hide mediocre mess of a song

  35. Bey Fan January 29, 2014

    i’ll wait til i see the whole video

  36. Rosie January 29, 2014

    Not even Rihfund’s stans care about this song. Is this why this turned into a Beyoncé post 5 comments in?

    Ahhhhhhh! Have to do it. A HIVE member told me that Drunk In Love was predicted to crack the top ten this week. Looked on BB and it’s not. Ha! You tell me Katy topped the charts with a half ass performance but Bey, the QUEEN, the ONE still can’t crack the top ten? But I’m not mad, I’m still wondering where’s Gaga and her monsters at? Haven’t heard from them in a while. I mean she is an “album seller.” ha!

  39. Bey Fan January 29, 2014

    @Mark that prediction was for next week…. but it’s just a prediction. Also Katy was already number 2… she was going to be number one with or without that Grammy performance.

    Only one of those women is a natural beauty, and it isn’t the one with the wig…
    Real talent:


  41. mc!!!! January 30, 2014

    Um shakira moves in beautiful liar are her moves Beyonce could barely belly dance that’s why they were messing with the camera on the scene where they were both dancing… I don’t really like the song much but shakira target commercial made me like it a little bit more.

  42. mc!!!! January 30, 2014

    Who cares if it out of iTunes its #28 on the billboard charts and charting well everywhere else

  43. Kiara January 30, 2014

    Delusional aren’t we? It’s the other way around sweets; Beyonce’s been stealing Shakira’s moves ever since La Tortura and Hips Don’t Lie. Why would Shakira, an excellent dancer of Latin and Arabesque, steal Beyonce’s moves? Maybe yall are just too young to remember it was Shak who brought the Arabic flavor to the US back in 2001 and 2006.

  44. Kiara January 30, 2014

    I’m abroad and the song is on play continuously, from shops, to cafes and lounges. It’s a hit in Europe.

  45. Kiara January 30, 2014

    Exactly! Those were Shakira’s moves from Hips Don’t LIe and other projects. It’s her signature style and Bey got her int he vid so she could have an excuse to use those moves without being criticised for stealing. Smart move on Beyonce’s part – she nearly ruined Shak’s career. Bey didn’t know how to dance much before Shak actually TAUGHT her some moves. How fast our memory fades!

  46. Yea ok January 30, 2014

    Everytime I come to this blog this tired as.s queen slayriah is all over the place in every comment section leaving the same tired comments a 100 times. Jesus Christ. People like u are making this blog so pathetic. Y’all never stay on topic in any post.

    Get a LIFE. Outside of the internet hun. And quickly.

  47. Maya January 30, 2014

    Beyonce almost ruined Shakira’s career? That sounds so dumb. Usually I don’t read the comments on this website, because of the delusion and stupidity. Anyway, I haven’t heard the song, but we shall see how much of an impact the video has on the song. The little clip that they showed is actually not bad at all.

  48. JOHNVIDAL January 30, 2014

    Damn it! Beyonce really did lipsync that grammy performance, or at least a big part of it. I´m not shading, any performance by her is better than any Rihanna, Katy Perry or Milye Cyrus one, lipped or not. Just saying for those Beyonce stans who are the only ones that really think she never lips. She lips as everybpody else.
    About Shakira and Rihanna: wow not even I thought the song was going to do so poorly. I told you, yes Rihanna gets a #1 every year more or less, but in part it is thanks to her 7 releases per year, one or two end on top by default 🙂 Wait till her radio appeal expires… it´s going to be one sad big downfall.

  49. MuiMui January 30, 2014

    You pack a punch that is why you are so popular and people love to try and run up on you.Now why don’t you and the Mariah Fans Kiss and make up,that would make for
    a match made in heaven.

  50. MuiMui January 30, 2014

    I will try to go easy on Beyonce But the truth is there’s
    nothing wrong with her trying to be slick and drop her music secret,remember jayz did the same thing.Question is while they try and knock Ri out of the water,she is still front and center in people faces,and going no place but up.

  51. MuiMui January 30, 2014

    See look up jayz album sales and compare his sales to others like his last surprise album that moved a million and went platinum in a week. Eminem and Justin Timberlake has passed jayz in sales , big time ,but we never talk about that,and the reason why, because everybody is so moon struck over what Ri is doing.

  52. MuiMui January 30, 2014

    OH Back to Beyonce , see she has always been a s!orey s!ore from Houston, who has enjoyed spreading her legs to the v mark, but only on a bigger stage than the other musicians.Then think about it as far as black musicians goes it was Ri who stepped it up after Beyonce did, without any shame in her game.Ri can do the same moves Shakira does in hips don’t lie ,if she wanted to.

  53. MuiMui January 30, 2014

    You hate Ri and always talk everything she ever does down.And you know deep in your heart that its not Fair
    at all for Beyonce to be given more Grammys then four of the Biggest Selling Females in the History of Music.
    But guess what I Understand how Haters stay Pressed over Ri Accolades and success.Your kind stay talking Rihanna down and even when she do Win , you talk that down.
    But John don’t it make your blood run cold ,to see that after all the slurs,all the hate and all the dislike of Ri she has still made it to the top Ten Tours,Without a sponsor, and she has Added Her eight Grammys to her haul.Don’t it press you DEEP DOWN INSIDE OF YOUR BEING to see her long lean a)) making a%%e% out of you AND HER HATERS.Even with how she sings,performs and entertain shes still holding her own.
    And list the other Ten Musician around her age and time in the Game , who has sold more than 10 Million Albums and Rules the Singles in music history and the Guinnees world books,hateful dirty bytch.

  54. MuiMui January 30, 2014

    Beyonce present has been so huge many of the girls has fallen back and just let her over ride and over rule them,but not Ri,she has always taken the lead and song Grown Woman Lyrics and RI didn’t wait until she married herself a music mogul and bought herself a Designer Baby Girl ,nobody know this better than Jayz himself. Beyonce went buck dam wild after she got used to his look, and Jayz Beautiful lovely Charm, because his money looked so much better than anything else in the world to her and her Family.

  55. MuiMui January 30, 2014

    What is Telling about Beyonce latest surprise album is the Fact that she has lowered herself, and her Standards her DADDY Built for her. Now with Jayz her husband and Pimp, she has clearly lowered her Standards
    to be the Artist she has always said she was Better Than,Oh the Struggle to stay forever on top.
    Rihanna has Single handed Given the like of even Beyonce a New Leash On Life,Give Ri the credit because she has made a Huge Impact on the Music of Today from Her Beautiful Chart Success, to her Queen of Social Media Success Which Far Exceeds Beyonce’s.

  56. MuiMui January 30, 2014

    If Beyonce was the True Queen than she should be a Leader and not a Follower. And by the way how is it that Beyonce can pop and roll her booty circles around Rihanna and Rihanna single “Diamond” has more YouTube views than “Beautiful Liars” and Ri has all of her clothes on and nothing but a Mic in her hand.

  57. The Boy Toy January 30, 2014

    The song grew on me. I can’t wait to see the video!

  58. CICI January 30, 2014



  59. ASBEENISH January 30, 2014

    This week’s figures. Can’t remember this song drops from #28 to #61. Not even a video is gonna be able to save this one

  60. Scamz January 30, 2014


  61. Sandra January 30, 2014

    I cant wait!! I love Shakira and Rihanna

  62. Kiara January 30, 2014

    It’s quite a curiosity to me to be comparing an audio that was released 2 weeks ago to a single that was released WITH a video – a highly titillating one at that – that has been out over a month. It is not a fair comparison. The audio alone has gotten 23 milion views over 10 day span while Bey’s Blue is still at 18 milion WITh an accompanying video. See where I’m getting? The comparisons are not fair and the numbers don’t add up. Shakira’s FB has 80 milion likes and about 2+mil talking about it at all times; Rihana’s has 84 mil with the same amount talking while Beyonce, with a new album, new videos, and a song laced with obscenities and titillation, still has only 56 million fans. And I don’t care who’s quoting her on twitter – all the more disturbing that kids are quoting such a nasty song. This is the woman that sang at 2 inaugurations? What happened to that carefully curated image? Too stale? Not doing it for her anymore so she had to jack Rihanna’s raunchy bad girl style? I mean, I get it, it wouldn’t be the first time desperate, unoriginal, robotic, personality-less Bey jacks someone else.

  63. Kiara January 30, 2014

    Bam! Seriously, what kind of husband parades his wife and mother of his child in front of millions half-naked while she sings obscenities, spreads her legs, pops her b*** awhile he swaggers out fully clothed? Ladies if you don’t know how pimps make money, take a page from Jay-Z handbook. Using a woman’s sexuality while you rake in $$!? Splitting the profits the woman earns by use of her body? Hmm. Yea Pimp and w****. Shame on her for changing her image to that of a w****, singing about s** and wood and grinding on a hugely watched program on primetime. You would never have seen other black ladies – Tina, Whitney, Diana, Diane Carole degrading themselves like this. Never! Beyonce is now just another part of ratchet culture. Never to be mentioned in the same sentence with these true Divas!
