The video opens with views of a tropical getaway before cutting to blonde Shakira, 36, on a bed in just a see-through white top.

With her hair in loose curls and wearing pink lipstick, she writhes around on the bed with her white underwear visible beneath her sweater.

It then cuts to her in a sexy black bathing suit, heels and chunky gold jewellery before we moved on to a pool where Shakira appears nearly naked.

Her next looks shows Shakira gyrating against a wall dressed in a risqué red Julien Macdonald dress, which is almost completely see-through.

And all this is before Rihanna even makes her first appearance.

The 25-year-old singer bursts onto the screens dressed in a black leotard covered in feathers.

What man? While the song is supposed to be about a man they both can't stay away from, there is no sign of him in the video

She turns to the camera to show off
her dark red lipstick and hair in loose curls around her face before it
cuts to the duo lying by a pool puffing on cigars.

As
the duo sing about their mutual addiction to a man who is no good for
them, they indulge in a dance off, with a wall separating them, showing
off their coordinating choreography which gets progressively
raunchier.  

Things heat up
as they return to the cabana by the pool and caress each other with
Rihanna placing her hand on Shakira’s pert posterior.

It’s not all about hanging out with a scantily clad Rihanna though as Shakira shows off her musical prowess, playing guitar and then the drums while wearing just a bra and lace trousers.

Both women eventually ditch their clothes altogether to share a naked embrace, while another scene features Rihanna and Shakira standing close together with their arms entwined and the Diamonds star a breath away from kissing her companion’s cheek.

The Joseph Khan-directed video follows the single’s initial release earlier this month.

Shakira previously explained the
reasons for choosing Rihanna: ‘This song Can’t Remember To Forget You
combines both the reggae and the rock spirit. 

‘That’s why I thought that Rihanna was perfect and thought that she was the other half for this.’

Away
from the cameras, Shakira is a devoted mother to one-year-old son Milo
with her partner, 26-year-old Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique.

‘When it comes to living, it’s all about the present,’ Shakira recently told People. ‘I’m finally able to really savor all of those little moments that, in the early days of my career, I was too busy thinking about the next thing to just stop, take it all in, and enjoy.’

Rihanna is said to be seeing her on-and-off again beau Drake despite him recently being linked to Zoe Kravitz.

The couple was spotted Sunday at the same Grammys after-party at the Greystone Mansion above LA’s Sunset Boulevard.

Keep it simple in a black bandeau swimsuit

The long-awaited collaboration between two of pop music’s hottest babes – Rihanna and Shakira – has finally landed. But here are Femail Fashion Finder we’re not bothered about the music (well OK, we are a bit), but the clothes!

The artwork for the single doesn’t disappoint. Both girls look ultra glam with wavy side-swept hair and lashings of chunky gold jewellery.

She may not be on the beach, but Rihanna is in fact wearing a swimsuit by New York based designer Norma Kamali. Norma Kamali has been on the fashion scene since the 1960s, and designed the iconic red swimsuit which Farrah Fawcet wore in Charlie’s Angels.

Like the LBD (little black dress) a black bandeau swimsuit is a fashion classic, and every woman should have one in her wardrobe. For a show-stopping poolside look you can glam it up with chunky gold jewellery like Rihanna, or just wear it as is for a low-key day on the beach.

So what are you waiting for? You can get your hands on Rihanna’s exact Norma Kamali swimsuit by clicking the image on the right.
