The record marked a return to her musical roots after her experimentation with electronic music and was primarily a Latin pop album with influences of rock and merengue music.[3][4] It garnered critical acclaim[5] and was a commercial success internationally.[6] A year later in November, Shakira revealed in an interview with Billboard magazine that she had begun writing new material and working with various producers for a new record.[7] Initially in 2012, it was expected that the first single from the singer's album would be a song titled "Truth or Dare".[8] In June, Colombian newspaper El Heraldo reported that Shakira had been filming the music video for the song in Lisbon, Portugal, and speculated that it would be in late-2012.[8] "Truth or Dare", however, was not .

On December 6, 2013, a Twitter page named @ShakiraSpace announced the duet between Shakira and Rihanna. Then, on December 8, 2013, Shakira's body double Alexita Ortiz wrote on social networking site Twitter that she had been working with her on the set for a music video, and mentioned that Rihanna was also involved.[9] The tweet was subsequently removed.[9] The speculation regarding the collaboration of the two singers increased after Cuban American rapper Pitbull, in a radio interview on Kidd Kraddick in the Morning, commented that Rihanna wasn't able to appear as the featured artist in his song "Timber" as she had "something she had to do with Shakira."[10] Later, Sony Music Entertainment announced that the first single would be in early 2014.[11]

Composition[edit]

"I'm going through a completely different experience right in relation to the song. The song is about that guy that just gets under your skin and you can't leave alone. I think every woman has been through that. This song is not exactly a reflection of my personal life right now."

—Shakira, explaining the lyrical meaning of the song[20]

"Can't Remember to Forget You" is an uptempo new wave[21] and reggae rock[1] track that incorporates elements of ska and has a length of three minutes and twenty eight seconds.[22] The Guardian characterised the song as a "new wave pop" track containing a "guitar-tinged" beat.[21] Rap-Up magazine said the song is an "upbeat" track containing a "reggae-tinged" beat.[23] The song opens with a "-slung, reggae-tinged verse", which the Guardian compared to the work of The Police, the song moves into a "guitar-heavy" chorus which contains "ska guitars and horns" and a "chunky rock arrangement".[21][24][25] Complex described the song as a pop rock track.[26]

Lyrically, the song concerns a man that Shakira cannot get off her mind, discussing how easy it is to forget how bad someone is for you when you still love them.[21][22] The lyrics were noted by E! Online as describing a woman who will follow her man, the concept of the song is introduced in lyrics such as "keep(s) forgetting I should let you go/ But when you look at me/ The only memory is us kissing in the moonlight."[27] Lewis Corner of Digital Spy commented on the lyric; "I keep forgetting I should let you go" as the singers telling their "no-good lothario, who seems to still have a hefty grip on their hearts," continuing to say the songs lyrics are "romantic pitfall."[28] Musically, the song is written in the key of B minor, and set in common time signature with a moderately fast tempo of 138[29] beats per minute. It follows a chord progression of Bm-Em-A-D. Shakira and Rihanna's vocals span from the note of B3 to the high note of D5.[30]

Critical reception[edit]

The song received mixed reviews from critics.[26] MTV praised the song and complimented its "Latin and Island flourishes", continuing to compare the song to "Locked Out of Heaven" by Bruno Mars and Shakira's and Beyoncé's previous collaboration "Beautiful Liar."[20] The Guardian found its melodies catchy, and praised the song for keeping away from electronic dance music, noting Shakira's return to "guitar-tinged new wave pop".[21] VIBE magazine praised the duet calling it a "powerhouse collaboration", concluding, "The she-wolf and Bajan bombshell’s chemistry seeps through the bass line and their accented vocals, sure to make both stanbases happy."[31] Jason Lipshutz of Billboard noted the song as being "enjoyably grandiose", praising the "ska-punk guitar riff" and its "chunky rock arrangement."[26][32] Popjustice gave the song a positive review saying, "You cannot go wrong with a bit of Shakira. You cannot go wrong with a bit of Rihanna. Two facts for you there ladies and gents."[26]

Bradley Stern of MuuMuse felt the song was not consequential, despite praising the song as something different from contemporary radio.[26][33] Despite saying that "elements" of the song "feel worldly and memorable", Amy Sciarretto of Pop Crush gave the song two and a half stars out of five, stating, "it's a bit underwhelming considering that it’s two powerhouse female divas under one roof."[34] Similarly, Lindsey Weber of Vulture called the song “ironically forgettable” due to Shakira's and Rihanna's vocal similarity and the "-tempo reggae-rock beat."[26][35] Additionally, Gerrick D. Kennedy of The Los Angeles Times said the single "could use more steam", summarising with, "Here’s one thing about hype: It’s almost impossible to live up to."[36] Claire Lobenfield of Complex wrote, "As evidenced by the title, it’s a song about lingering heartache. But instead of making it a melancholic affair, the duet is full pop-rock a la Bruno Mars."[26][37]
