Shakira and Rihanna's much anticipated duet "Can't Remember To Forget You" will be released this coming Monday.

The Columbian-born Shakira discussed the song in a recent interview with Glamour magazine published on Tuesday, in which she called Rihanna "the sexiest woman on the planet."

"Working with Rihanna was utopia," Shakira told the fashion magazine. "She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. 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."

The 25-year-old Rihanna, who was born in Barbados, tweeted "Shakira, Shakira" early Wednesday morning, a reference to her song "Hips Don't Lie" with Wyclef Jean.

A 30-second preview video of the duet, featured below, was released Monday on YouTube.

Shakira also discussed her music career in the interview.

"Success happened little by little for me," Shakira said. "I tasted the flavor of fame in small doses: I started at 10 years old when I won a music contest; I was performing at birthday parties, company meetings."

"I met with a record executive when I was 13 and sang Material Girl to a cassette-tape boom box," Shakira added regarding her modest beginnings.

Shakira has won a combined 10 Latin and American Grammys, selling more than 50 million albums all over the world with such hits as "Whenever, Wherever," "She Wolf," and "Underneath Your Clothes."

Despite her success however, Shakira says she remains hungry.

"One day I realized I was famous enough. But here's the thing: I'm still hungry," Shakira said. "But I'm not hungry for fame — just the need to prove to myself that I can still do this."
