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.

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.
