10 Collaborations You've Probably Forgotten

It's a day early for #ThrowbackThursday, but we thought it's nice to remember these duets.

If there's a trend in the music world in the early 2000s, it would be this: Our favorite artists did a lot of collaborations. We totes loved that time because it was like hitting 2 birds in one listen. Here are 10 of the best collabs and duets of the past decade for a little #WaybackWednesday for you today. 

1. Taylor Swift and Boys Like Girls' "Two Is Better Than One" (2009). Written by the band's frontman, Martin Johnson, the second version included a duet with T-Swizzle. Although you can't see her in the music video, her vocals are still heard in the background. Oh and ICYDK, there are rumors that Martin is the man T-Swizzle sings about in "Love Story." Totes unrelated to the song, but we thought you'd like to keep that in mind, too.

2. Jaden Smith and Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never" (2010). For the original motion picture soundtrack of The Karate Kid, the 2 recorded the song to raise the inspiring message of the film—although the original lyrics sent a totally different message.

3. Jojo and Bow Wow's "Baby It's You" (2004). Taken from Jojo's self-titled album, the song's album version didn't actually have the rapper's part. For some reason, though, the Bow Wow version was the one that really stuck with us.

4. Alicia Keys and Usher's "My Boo" (2004). Alicia probably did a lot of collabs in the past decade, and one of everyone's fave was this track that pays tribute to a person's great love.

5. Rihanna and Ne-Yo's "Hate That I Love You" (2007). This catchy love song is from Rihanna's Good Girl Gone Bad album. It was also co-written by Ne-Yo, who actually wrote a lot of songs for different singers that time, with StarGate.

6. Jennifer Lopez and LL Cool J's "All I Have" (2003). Singing about a couple on the verge of separation, these 2 musicians take us on a walk to the challenges of being in a relationship.

7. Beyonce and Shakira's "Beautiful Liar" (2007). The music video is just flawless with 2 gorgeous singers busting belly moves. We. Can't. Even. Process the perfection in one music video. A little trivia, they only met while doing the music video and recorded the song separately.

8. Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown's "No Air" (2008). This Grammy-nominated track for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals will leave you feeling like there's not enough air to breathe because of their powerful vocals.

9. Alicia Keys and Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind" (2009). Tell us if this song doesn't leave you with a bad case of LSS. You'll surely find yourself singing, "New York, New York, New York" after listening to it.

10. Katharine McPhee and Zachary Levi's "Terrified" (2010). What probably made this such a hit was because it resonated with anyone who's been hurt before and are on the verge of falling for a new love again. #feels
