18 Celeb Couple Duets That Outlasted Their Relationships
There’s no future for Ciara and Future. And they’re not the only celebrity couple whose duets have outlasted their love. Check out these famous musicians who collaborated in the studio and in their hearts (and in a couple of other places, too) … but whose music has resonated much longer than their actual relationships did.
1. Ciara and Future, “Body Party”
Ciara and Future are dunzo. After weeks of speculation of a split, Page Six reports that the pair are over after he cheated on the chanteuse. What’s more, the pair worked together on several songs on her attempt at a comeback record, “Body Party,” which, well, didn’t bring her back that much. Sources say Ciara’s main focus is now her child with Future, also named … Future.
2. Rita Ora and Calvin Harris, “I Will Never Let You Down”
This single was, to date, UK native Rita Ora’s biggest hit stateside (though her collaboration with Iggy Azalea, “Black Widow,” may well eclipse the success of “I Will Never You Down”). What’s more, Calvin Harris was Rita Ora’s most successful and most public relationship, because Rob Kardashian was never even really her boyfriend. The song is super-catchy, and she looks gorgeous in the video. Unfortunately, the former duo made headlines this week when the uberproducer and DJ refused to let Ora perform their collaboration at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards. Bitter much, bro? It’s enough for us to want them to work it out for purely selfish aural reasons, except Harris seems like, well, a petty d*ck about the whole thing right about now.
3. John Mayer and Katy Perry, “Who You Love”
These two were conveniently quiet about their relationship until they both had albums to promote, at which point they put themselves on blast like they’d just been waterboarded or something. It’s schmaltzy and the video is really awkward, but we can’t expect too much from people who think terms like “sexual napalm” and thinly-veiled homophobic tracks like “Ur So Gay” are like, totally deep.
