One of the more anticipated single releases of our young year, Shakira’s first single from her upcoming spring album, now has a launch date. “Can’t Remember To Forget You,” featuring Rihanna, will be unveiled next Monday (Jan. 13).

The new single was previously confirmed to be dropping January, but Rihanna revealed the release date on Twitter on Monday morning (Jan. 6). Last month, Shakira and Rihanna were reportedly in Los Angeles filming the new song’s music video with director Joseph Kahn.
Shakira’s forthcoming studio album — her first English-language effort since 2009’s “She Wolf” — is due out this spring on RCA/Sony Latin Iberia. The Colombian singer-songwriter will also be returning to NBC’s “The Voice” as a coach this spring.
“Can’t Remember To Forget You” will follow another high-profile feature for Rihanna — Eminem’s “The Monster,” which spent a fourth frame atop the Hot 100 chart last week.
