Indeed, after 2013′s close saw former foes Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera joined forces for ’Do What U Want’, music lovers kick their new year off getting cozy with ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’ - the dynamo diva duet of Grammy-winning songstresses Shakira & Rihanna.
Launching what we hope is a year of diva double teams, the song inks its name aboard a long list of memorable collabos from the ladies of pop & R&B – collectively putting to rest rumors that women don’t work well together in the industry. And, while the net (and we at TGJ) are still making up our minds on Shakira and Ri’s latest offering, we can’t help but reflect on the ‘best of’ diva duets to see how the Roc Nation duo stack up.
Compiling a list of our favorite estrogen-tinged tag teams, tuck in below to see who made our tally and tell us your thoughts:

One year after its release, it’s now safe to say Alicia Keys’ ‘Girl On Fire’ delivered another signature hit from the star…the empowering anthem of the very same name.
Alas, after taking one year to sell what albums prior Keys albums have sold in a week, the LP now stands as one of the performer’s lowest selling to date, failing to hold a light to the flame that was ‘The Element of Freedom’ or her ‘Fallin‘ fuelled debut.
Now, it’s time for you to have your say!

14-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys is still very much on fire – as evidenced by her top-selling ‘Set the World On Fire’ that recently touched down on Aussie shores. While there, the singer tapped her ‘You Don’t Know My Name’ collaborator / fellow- Grammy winner John Legend to lend a tribute to fallen South African social activist Nelson Mandela.
Taking their chops to the Bob Marley classic ‘Redemption Song’, their inspiring tribute comes as the latest of musical homages to Mandela.
Elsewhere, artists like rapper The Game have shied away from music and opted to pay their respects in different ways…like ink.
