These 2 Couples Are Now Bigger Than Jay & Beyoncé on Spotify
We all know Beyoncé and Jay Z as the ultimate power couple and the queen and king of music in this era. Considering all the drama and music surrounding them both this year, you’d think they were at least the most-streamed couple on Spotify, right?
Well, according to Spotify data, there were actually a few music couples that were streamed more often than Jay and Bey.
The full list of the top music baes on Spotify is below, are you surprised?
1. Drake & Rihanna
Sure, they might not be a couple anymore. I mean, maybe they never were? But either way, Drake and Rih released some major bangers together this year. Even if you don’t stan them as a couple, you definitely twerked to “Werk” at some point in 2016.
2. Ariana Grande & Mac Miller
Mac Miller may not be cute, but when paired with Ariana Grande it’s pretty fucking adorable.
3. Beyoncé & JAY Z
Okay, number three isn’t bad, I guess. But considering the shitstorm that “Lemonade” was, we’re still shocked. Still, it was exclusive on Tidal for, like, ever, and Jay barely released music this year. Guess if they want that Tidal shmoney, Jay and Beyoncé are going to have to deal with coming in third on other platforms.
4. Calvin Harris & Taylor Swift
Happy Birthday Taylor! Remember when your ex-bae Calvin took the song you kind of wrote for him and performed it with Rihanna instead? Good times.
5. Ellie Goulding & Dougie Poynter (McFly)
Real talk, why did we not know about this couple when they were dating? They’re broken up now, but Dougie claims that he still loves her, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
6. Meek Mill & Nicki Minaj
Okay, Nicki is probably carrying this couple on the charts, but Drake may still be pissed about this one.
7. Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger (Nickelback)
Yes, people still listen to Nickelback AND Avril Lavigne.
8. Jake Roche (Rixton) & Jesy Nelson (Little Mix)
They are allegedly broken up now, much to the dismay of many fan accounts
9. Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani
Gwen and Blake, or “Shefani,” as this Instagram account calls them, tried so hard to make it happen, and I guess it kind of worked?
10. French Montana & Iggy Azalea
Guess Khloé’s ex-bae was better suited for another musician instead of a denim line ambassador?
