Shakira and Rihanna, we will remember to forget your new song

Here's a match many of you didn't see coming. No, I'm not talking about the Gaga/Xtincta collab, we already covered that a few posts ago. I'm talking about the new collab of Shakira and RihannaCan't Remember To Forget You.
These days, everyone wants to sing with Rihanna, so why not Shakira, you ask? Well, when two such huge stars do a song together, you expect it to be a smash. That's why this song might disappoint many, including Shakira and Rihanna fans.

The song is basically typical Shakira stuff. It sounds like filler from She Wolf or Laundry Service, so she should definitely update her sound a bit. On the other hand, Rihanna's parts sound reggae because of her singing style, so they don't really match the rest of the song. That doesn't mean they are not good, Rihanna's parts are actually better, but the whole thing just doesn't work. Shakira and Beyonce worked well because they have some stuff in common, but putting together fierce-reggae-ghetto-Rihanna with cute-latino-sensual-Shakira is obviously not a good match, at least not in this song. Sorry, girls, better luck next time.
