Rihanna and Mikki Ekko, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, Camille Lellouche and Grand Corps Malade … As soon as you listen to these featurings, you are almost certain to have wet eyes and standing hairs.
Like everyone else, in addition to your playlist of the new releases of the week with Taylor Swift, Chance The Rapper, Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys … you have another special “bitchy” playlist with songs that from the very first seconds start, you know you’re going to be moved. The kind of sounds you listen to in a breakup or a sad moment and you tell yourself that the lyrics are made for you. We have drawn up a small (non-exhaustive) list of all these musical duets that force us to take out the handkerchiefs and you will see some are still moving and effective even if they are a bit dated …
CAMILLE LELLOUCHE & GRAND CORPS MALADE – BUT I LOVE YOU
As Camille Lellouche told us during our excluded interview, the singer did not expect such a success and yet her duet with Grand Corps Malade has hit the mark with more than 46 million views on Youtube. The lyrics and the clip in black & white, everything is there to touch us.
LADY GAGA & BRADLEY COOPER – SHALLOW
Absolutely no one could miss the tube “Shallow” from the soundtrack of the film A Star is born with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. The song performed by the two actors is a little gem and their complicity breaks the screen. So much so that the rumors wanted them to have had an affair during the filming …
HALSEY & G-EAZY – HIM & I
At the time when Halsey and G-Eazy were together, they had recorded this duo on their fusional relationship. Today, they broke up and the singer suggested that their relationship had been quite complicated or even toxic … So we listen to it differently now.
JULIA MICHAELS & SELENA GOMEZ – ANXIETY
This duo between BFF is very moving because it addresses depression and anxiety. The two singers and friends confide in this mental illness from which they both suffered.
ZAYN & SIA – SHOWER TO DAWN
Unbelievable but this tube counts more than 1.4 billion views on Youtube. Even if we don’t know the title, everyone can say “ah, but if I’ve heard this song before”. Classic. But you knew she was part of the soundtrack of the movie The mountain between us with Kate Winslet and Idris Elba?
TAYLOR SWIFT & ZAYN – I DON’T WANNA LIVE FOREVER
Another film music that marked the spirits since it is part of the soundtrack of Fifty Shades Darker and obviously after that we will have it in mind for a while.
SAM SMITH & NORMANI – DANCING WITH A STRANGER
This collab ‘between the two American artists speaks of loneliness and of learning to resume the course of one’s life after a breakup … Clearly the kind of subjects that will make us cry, especially with the voice of Sam Smith.
RIHANNA & MIKKI EKKO – STAY
This song is almost 8 years old and yet when you listen to it you still get chills. Obviously we love Riri’s voice but Mikki Ekko is also perfect and it’s a shame we don’t hear about him anymore today …
