POLL: What Is The Most Disappointing Superstar Duet Of All Time?

By Frank Donovan

We still can’t get over the pleasant surprise of “FourFiveSeconds.” The collaboration of Paul McCartney, Kanye West, and Rihanna is catchy, understated, and doesn’t sound like every other hit. It got us thinking–not as much can be said for a lot of musical combinations over the years.

Time and time again the most exciting and unexpected partnerships either fall flat or are aggressively bad. It could be too much ego in one room, or perhaps the whole thing is a thinly-veiled publicity stunt, doomed to fizzle out. Sometimes completely disparate genres and voices just don’t mesh and result in something less than the sum of its parts. We hate to throw shade at talents like Beyonce, Madonna, and Justin Timberlake, but when they set the bar so high and don’t deliver, we end up with forgettable songs that don’t do them justice. Check out our 15 nominees for the most disappointing musical mega-duets in history, and be sure to cast your vote in the poll below!
