At first, the thought of having two big names on one single can seem potentially disastrous – the differences in style and voices could result in a messy, confused jumble of sounds. However, sometimes teamwork in the music business pays off. Both artists could have equal impact on the track, creating something that couldn’t have been done without the other’s contribution. What’s more, fans get two for the price of one and there’s always an inevitable hype surrounding the notorious musical collaboration. The following is a list of collaborations, both young and old, that are not only extremely famous, but completely untouchable.
