Can't Remember to Forget You (feat. Rihanna)


Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Can't Remember to Forget You (feat. Rihanna). By Songfacts®.

The first single from Shakira's fourth English studio album features Rihanna and finds the two stars lamenting on their inability to forget lovers who are bad for them. "Working with Rihanna was utopia. She's the sexiest woman on the planet," the Colombian singer said in 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."

Rihanna turned down an offer from Pitbull to sing on his "Timber" single, as she was already working with Shakira on this song.

Shakira's relationship with the father of her child, Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique, was definitely not an inspiration for the track. She told Ryan Seacrest: "I'm going through a completely different experience right in relation to the song. The song is about that guy that just gets under your skin and you can't leave alone. I think every woman has been through that. This song is not exactly a reflection of my personal life right now."
