These days, it’s no big deal for two artists from different races to collaborate on tracks. From hits like Katy Perry‘s “Dark Horse” with Juicy J, to the somewhat tone-deaf “Accidental Racist” from LL Cool J and Brad Paisley, we barely notice the difference in complexions when music stars team up.
But as we know, that wasn’t always the case. So to celebrate the anniversary of the cheesy classic, “Ebony And Ivory,” what were some of the interracial duets from the `80s that are still with us to this day? Get ready for power ballads, funky love songs, and a hit from a once-burgeoning genre in our ranking of songs that crossed color lines. Hop into our gallery to find out who made the cut!
And don’t forget to listen to our Spotify playlist to experience racial harmony in all its glory!
