Rihanna and Drake Are Music's Most Powerful Couple, Says Spotify

Share

Rihanna and Drake have been named "music's most powerful couple."

The pair were honored with the title by Spotify after ranking the most influential couples in music history, based on analyzing the total combined streams for each artist.

Rihanna is also in second place on the couples list when paired with former boyfriend Chris Brown.

Jay Z and Beyoncé are in third place, Katy Perry and John Mayer are fourth and One Direction's Harry Styles and Taylor Swift round off the Top 5.

"It's pretty amazing that music's favorite bad girl Rihanna has taken the two highest spots on the list, holding off competition from the rest of the Roc Nation family — Jay Z, Kanye West, and Rita Ora," said Angela Watts, VP of global communications for Spotify.

"One Direction also manage to bag themselves two places on the list, which is quite an achievement. They even beat everyone's favorite '90s couple, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake."

Other couples to make the list include Coldplay's Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow — who is on the service with her Glee performances — and Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
