Normally we’d be excited about Rihanna or Shakira releasing a new solo single, but with a duet on the horizon, we’re pretty much freaking out. The Barbadian songstress and Colombian bombshell will release “Can’t Remember to Forget You” in just four short days, and they know exactly how to tide us over until the big day: with a sexy promo shot!

“Official single art for "CAN'T REMEMBER TO FORGET YOU" with @Shakira #4daycountdown,” Rihanna Instagrammed earlier today, January 9.

In the single art, both Shakira and RiRi are donning black dresses, with Rihanna opting for a strapless black bodysuit and Shakira going for a revealing sleeveless dress with cutouts. But let’s get real, these two could be wearing potato sacks and they would look absolutely fabulous!

The new single won’t be released until January 13, but Shakira is already singing its praises.

"Working with [Rihanna] was utopia," Shakira said in the latest issue of Glamour, out January 14. "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."

We can’t wait to jam out to this duet when it comes out. With Shakira and Rihanna coming together for a song, 2014 is off to a great start!
