Shakira and Rihanna are to release a duet.

Titled 'Can't Remember To Forget You', the collaboration was announced simultaneously on both singers' social media accounts yesterday (January 6).



The track will be released on January 13 and will appear on Shakira's forthcoming album, her first since 2010’s 'Sale el Sol'.

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Rihanna has started work on her eighth studio album, according to producer DJ Mustard, who told HipHop-N-More, DJ Mustard said: "I’m finally going in with Rihanna." When asked whether the music would be for her next record, he replied: "Of course it is."

He added: "I'm just doing what I think she would like, and if she don’t like it we’ll just figure out something else in the studio, and I’ll just keep making beats ’till she figure it out. But she’s gonna get one."

The as-yet-untitled record would be the follow-up to 2012's 'Unapologetic'.
