Weigh In: How Does Shakira & Rihanna’s New Tune Stack Up Against Other Famous Diva Duets?

Screen shot 2014 01 13 at 4.31.16 PM Weigh In:  How Does Shakira & Rihannas New Tune Stack Up Against Other Famous Diva Duets?

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.

Designed much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ segments, ‘Replay’ is That Grape Juice‘s newest retrospective segment - a written quest, if you will, to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday.

Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase entire albums (and eras) from a library of pop and Urban pop music hits.  Today we fast backward to Queen of Hip Hop Soul Mary J. Blige‘s royal comeback album ‘The Breakthrough’. Our ode to the birthday girl (who celebrated her 43rd yesterday) awaits…
