The “Pon de Replay” singer joined musical forces with Shakira for her new single “Can’t Remember To Forget You,” from her eight studio album. Rihanna is no stranger to power duos as she has worked with Eminem and TI on singles “Love the way you lie” and “Live Your Life.

Drake Shoots “Wu-Tang Forever” Music Video with A$AP Rocky
Drake filmed music video “Wu-Tang Forever” with A$AP Rocky in Harlem Sunday Jan. 12, a song that does not refer to rap group Wu-Tang Clan, but to an era of 90’s rap music. The song was released last September with mixed reviews and left fans and some members of the rap group feeling as though the song didn’t reflect Wu-Tang Clan’s music.
“Wu-member Inspectah Deck spoke out against the song and said that he wouldn’t appear on the proposed remix that is set to include several of the Wu MCs. “The majority of everybody [recorded their verses], probably minus three,” Cappadonna said when he appeared on “RapFix Live” back in November,” reports MTV.com
