A good song collaboration could win artists major awards and a lot of money if it’s done right. Unfortunately, some artists have already passed away, or past beef has gotten in the way of some great music.
When it comes to making music, a good producer knows what two artists would be the best to score a No. 1 hit on Billboard.
Money has been left on the table because of disagreements and lives that were taken too soon.
1. Aaliyah + Beyoncè
Aaliyah died in a plane crash at just 22 years old, after making a music video for one of the biggest hits in her career.
The world would have loved to hear a record with Aaliyah and Beyoncè, who was in Destiny’s Child at the time.
Their two distinctive voices would have given the R&B girls a run for their money.
2. Kodak Black + Tekashi69
Kodak Black and Tekashi69 could make a powerful duo if they were on a song together.
Unfortunately, past beef has kept the two from making any move together.
In 2018, Kodak went to Instagram and clarified that nobody was better than him, including the New York rapper, who didn’t wait to respond either.
If the two are past the beef, it might be time for them to make a hit record.
3. Ari Lennox + Erykah Badu
Now, this collaboration may just be a soulful banger waiting to happen.
Ari Lennox and Erykah Badu both share a soulful voice that could win them a Grammy Award. Ari even met Badu, who gave her the advice to sing from her private parts.
4. Michael Jackson + Bruno Mars
Bruno Mars has fronted his career in a similar style to Michael Jackson‘s, so it’s a no-brainer that a song with these two would be a hit.
Unfortunately, Mars missed Michael, who died before a song could happen. If Michael still has any unreleased music out there, Mars’ team should do everything they can to get on it.
5. J. Cole + Tupac Shakur
Tupac is another artist taken too soon, at the prime age of 25, ultimately missing the chance to meet and collaborate with J. Cole.
It would be no surprise if the two made more than one song together or even shared some friendship.
Their attentiveness to lyrics and beats could have earned them both awards in music that are long overdue.
