Crazy In Love: The Best Duets From Real-Life Couples

by

Best Musical Duets Couples

Love makes sweet music! Many musicians can’t resist bringing their boos into the vocal booth for some sultry duets. Most recently we heard from John Mayer and Katy Perry on “Who You Love” (A.K.A. Russell Brand‘s least favorite song). Earlier this year Ciara heralded her couple-dom with Future with “Where You Go,” and although she doesn’t actually sing a note on the track (thank god), Kanye West did tap Kim Kardashian to appear in his video for “Bound2” a few weeks back. In honor of all the coupling going on in the music biz, we’ve decided to take a look back at the most notable real-life couple collaborations in music!

“I Got You Babe” by Sonny & Cher (1965)

Let’s kick this list off right with the quintessential husband and wife number. Sure, it terrorized Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, but it’s sweet! Years after they divorced, the couple reunited on David Letterman in 1987 to perform the song for what would be their final time.

 

“Jackson” by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash (1968)

June Carter was a famous country singer in her own right when she met Johnny Cash backstage at the Grand Ole Opry in 1955. Here they are performing on the same stage 13 years later, just after they married.
