Rihanna released the sexy cover art for her upcoming collaboration with Shakira called "Can't Remember to Forget You."

Rihanna posted the art on her official Instagram account with the caption, "Official single art for 'CAN'T REMEMBER TO FORGET YOU' with @Shakira#4daycountdown."

Shakira also posted a photo of the cover to her instagram account with the caption, "Only FOUR days until 'Can't Remember To Forget You' with Rihanna !! Here's the single artwork...#soexcited Shak #rihanna #shakira#cantremembertoforgetyou #crtfy."

Rihanna, 25, can be seen in the cover pictured above on the left resting her head in lap of 36-year-old Shakira, who rests her hand on Rihanna's shoulder. Both are wearing black swim suit-like outfits.

Earlier in the week, Rihanna confirmed the collaboration on Instagram by posting a photo of two director chairs with the song title and the release date of Jan. 13. The single appears to have Shakira as the lead with Rihanna being featured on the track.

Shakira spoke about working with Rihanna on the single in her recent Glamour magazine interview. She appears on the magazine's February cover, which goes on sale on Jan. 14.

"[W]orking with her was utopia. She's the sexiest woman on the planet," Shakira said of Rihanna. "And at the end of the day, we're both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher."

Shakira is currently getting ready to release her tenth studio album and is gearing up for her return as a coach on "The Voice" for the show's sixth season, which will kick off on Feb. 24.
