Rihanna & Shakira Do Soft-Core Right In New Music Video

There are three major things that happen in order to make a Shakira video: a water element, a "hard rock" moment, and a nice dosage of that funky hip/butt-pop dance move (preferably against a wall or floor). The new music video for "Can't Remember To Forget You" has all of that, with the added bonus of Rihanna.
Prepare yourself: This is a video that'll make your hips hurt and then some. From her opening wavy mane, the smoldering temptress look, to the femme fatale and hot rocker-chick persona, it's clear Shakira's back in full Shakira mode. Rihanna's doing Rihanna and, unlike that other Shakira duet, sticks to twerking rather than try her hand at the aforementioned wall-hump move (seriously, what is that thing called?). Each ladies' beauty game is on par here, too. It's an effortless video meant to tantalize over anything else. And, that's a-okay. Sure, one can try and read into the subtle Britney Spears x Madonna "Me Against The Music" gender flip, but, honestly, the two look so effortless together that it's erroneous at this point.
