To be honest, we expected more from a Shakira/Rihanna link-up. Unfortunately their collaboration, "Can't Remember To Forget You"—part pop-rock, part ska, and all mall sound system—came up a bit short. This new Joseph Kahn-directed video attempts to make amends for the sort of dull song, putting the two awesomely empowered pop stars on a daybed together, where they wear teeny bikinis and smoke big cigars at the same damn time. That's the attitude we were hoping for. Also worth remembering: like Beyonce, Shakira is a new mom; she looks amazing. Shakira’s self-titled album is due March 25.
