Can't slow down, too much evil in my rear view.
Sometimes you want to scream to God, but he can't hear you .

"Fuck you complaining about? It ain't like you got cancer!"

The wait is finally over!
Shakira announced on Twitter that she will release her next single “Can’t Remember To Forget You”, a duet with Rihanna.
“You guys ready?” she tweeted on Monday. “Jan 13 is almost here! Estan listos? El 13 de Enero se acerca/ @Rihanna #rememberforget Shak.”
“Can’t Remember To Forget You” is the first musical project for the Colombian singer since she released her seventh album Sale el Sol in 2010. The Voice judge has kept a low-profile since her son, Milan, was born in January 2013.
In an interview with Glamour, Shakira gushed about her work with Rihanna. “Working with her was utopia,” she said of the singer. “She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. 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 confirmed the collaboration, posting a black and white shot of two directors chairs -- one with the name “Shakira” and the other with the name “Rihanna.”
