Sometimes the most unlikely artists make the sweetest music together.
It's no secret that some of our favourite artists are all really good pals: Taylor Swift has her ever-growing squad, Rihanna and Katy Perry are pretty tight-knit, and pretty much everybody wants to be friends with Beyoncé (even us; I mean, come on).
But there are some friendships between artists that are a bit harder to explain: where did they come from? What do they do when they hang out? and what would a collab sound like? Here's just a handful of our favourite odd pairings in music right now:
After their legendary six-year feud came to an end earlier this year, Tay and Ye have been nothing but sweet to one another - Kanye sent Taylor an enormous bouquet of flowers after her epic night at the VMAs, and she's endorsing his 2020 presidential campaign.
The kings of pop-punk have been revamping their sound lately, and after Wiz's epic live cameo during their Billboards performance, their combined onstage chemistry has resulted in a lot more collaborating on the Boys Of Zummer Tour.
Iggy has collaborated with quite a few artists on and off in her rise to stardom, but has found a firm friend in Demi. The "Cool For The Summer" singer has remained completely in the rapper's corner, and will also be a bridesmaid at her upcoming wedding!
The Queen of the Universe apparently has a lot of respect for the nerdiest white boy in pop. Beyoncé and Ed have performed on stage together a number of times, most recently with Bey brining him out during one of her shows to play an acoustic rendition of "Drunk In Love".
The 54 year-old frontman of the Flaming Lips doesn't seem like the best choice of BFF for a 22 year-old former Disney starlet, but Wayne and Miley's eccentric attitudes towards life seem to compliment each other pretty well; plus he's been a major influence in the much more trippy direction of her new music.
A classically trained singer, Gaga surprised everyone when she took some time off from the thumping pop bangers we're used to, and started working on some smooth, stripped-back lounge classics with legendary crooner Tony Bennett. But the pop diva and Tony's collaboration and friendship has given us all some serious goals.
