The 5 Greatest Musical Collaborations Of All Time

If exceptional artists bring their heads together, it's only natural that they produce excellent songs. Many performers have teamed up on songs ranging from rock songs to love ballads, but only a handful have captured the chemistry and mood required for flawless success. From oldies like Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney duo to the latest Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's collab, check out these five best collaborations ever!

1. Linkin Park & Jay-Z – Numb/Encore

Instead of watching the official video, watch Linking Park perform live onstage with Jay-Z. That's hard to take your mind off that mind-blowing performance. This was real teamwork between the biggest rock band of the time and the emerging star of rap music. And, as you can see, they all had a great time. Not for the money, but for the joy of it. At the 2006 Grammy Awards, the song "Numb/Encore" won "Best Rap/Sung Collaboration."

2. Justin Bieber – Despacito ft. Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee

Remember that 2017's anthem? Despacito swept the globe by storm as a great Pop and Latin crossover, mixing Spanish guitar, Reggaeton and Pop to deadly success.

3. Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney – 'Say, Say, Say'

After Michael Jackson finally decided to do a collaboration with Paul McCartney for his 1983 album Pipes of Peace, he was at the height of his stardom."Say, Say, Say," produced by George Martin, reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, capping off an outstanding year for Jackson.

4. Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg - "Nuthin' but a G Thang"

Snoop's appearances on Dr. Dre's iconic album "The Chronic" played a big part in the powerful period of hip-hop. Less dexterous raps of Dre's Long Beach cadence and Snoop's lazy music style are set off by the song's immediately noticeable keyboard theme. It's a pure hip-hop masterpiece and the start of the two musicians' long-running effective collaboration.

5. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper – "Shallow"

Lady Gaga's abilities are shown in the 2018 adaptation of the film A Star Is Born."Shallow," the Oscar winner for Best Original Song, is a contemporary take on a powerful love ballad with elements of rock, pop, and country music. The song went to number one in Canada, the UK, the US, and other countries. Among other awards, the songs won 'Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.'
