Need a boost of sexiness this Friday? The official video for the Shakira and Rihanna duet, “Can’t Remember To Forget You,” is here! And while the song itself may leave much to be desired, the video follows some familiar steps in the Sexy Female Duets rulebook. The clip is set in a mysterious mansion with Shakira employing some creative cover-ups in murky (bath?) water that somehow just appears (see: Shakira and Beyoncé‘s “Beautiful Liar,” which also relies heavily on the elements). Rihanna gets to do a long runway strut and sassy pose, and later attempts to out-booty the original rumpshaker. Then they both celebrate their success with some Cubans, because looking that good is hard work.
