Top Ten Collaboration Songs Between Two or More Female Solo Singers or Rappers


The Top Ten

1 Lady Marmalade - Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya & P!nk

The four go perfectly well together and deliver the best recording of the song. Each one has an individual and easily recognizable voice - Aguilera strong and powerful, P! nk raspy and hoarse, Mya sweet and childlike and Kim... well, she does the rapping. And it never feels as if each would only deliver their part and goodbye, no, it feels like they are coming at you at a united force of four. - Martin_Canine

That was the first song that came to mind when I saw the list title. - Metal_Treasure

2 Anyplace Anywhere Anytime - Nena & Kim Wilde

For her 2002 album "Nena feat. Nena", on which she entirely re-structured, re-recorded and re-worked her many classics, Nena got fellow 80s star Kim Wilde to record a bilingual version of "Irgendwie Irgendwo Irgendwann", and while often collaborations between artists with different languages feel out of place, on here it's as if they are singing to each other ("you don't speak my dialect / but our images reflect"), as if they are two sides of the same coin, or the two versions of the same person. - Martin_Canine

3 Beautiful Liar - Beyoncé & Shakira

I am not sure what Entertainment Weekly was on when saying Shakira's latin-esque, strong voice was similar to Beyoncé's traditionally soulful one, but over an oriental beat the two deliver a well performed and greatly written pop song about two women who have been tricked by the same man. - Martin_Canine

4 Me Against the Music - Britney Spears & Madonna

2003, Spears released the album "In the Zone", which is often regarded as her best, and Madonna released "American Life", which is among her most polarizing and my personal favorite works. "Me Against the Music" fuses the distinctive styles the respective artists had at the time: Spears' seductive RnB and Madonna's mix of acoustic, hip hop and simplistic electronica. - Martin_Canine

5 Somethin' Bad - Miranda Lambert & Carrie Underwood

I must say I barely know anything by Carrie Underwood as she is completely unknown over here (I know she is famous in the US as she is sometimes mentioned in sitcoms), but as a fan of Miranda Lambert, this anthemic, feminist rock sound is just badass. It's just that - unlike Beyoncé and Shakira - their voice is so damn similar. - Martin_Canine

6 Bang Bang - Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj

Jessie J and Ariana Grande showcase their stunning soulful singing abilitied and Minaj is close to doubletime rapping, all of this over a semi-nostalgic earworm jam that is without a doubt this decade's Lady Marmalade. - Martin_Canine

7 Telephone - Lady Gaga & Beyoncé

It's a bit bizarre getting a naturally gifted singer like Beyoncé for a rap verse, but it works surprisingly well. The song is an inevitable dance pop song that shows Gaga's ability of creating awesome pop music (next to her ability as creating true art).
But the highlight is the music video, it's not just a mere Tarantino hommage, it really captures the vibe of a Tarantino movie. - Martin_Canine

8 Like a Virgin / Hollywood - Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears & Missy Elliott

For the MTV Video Music Awards 2003, these 4 forces of popular music got together to perform a mashup of the two Madonna songs whose release dates cover a time span of almost 2 decades. The performance was much talked about fpr a lesbian kiss between Spears, Madonna and Aguilera. One of the greatest pop culture moments of the 2000s. - Martin_Canine

9 Somewhere - Jackie Evancho & Barbra Streisand
10 We Will Rock You - P!nk, Britney Spears & Beyoncé

With the most awesome pop rock icon P! nk, decade defining pop superstar Britney Spears and potential soul diva Beyoncé three of the biggest names in the 2000s pop landscape came together to perform the famous Queen classic for a 2004 Pepsi commercial and surprisingly, it was great.

PS: And obviously, Spears forgot about that slight attack on "Don't Let Me Get Me" two years before. - Martin_Canine

The Contenders

11 Can't Remember to Forget You - Shakira & Rihanna

It's refreshing to hear Rihanna so cheerful and uplifting again. The last time she sounded like this was on her second album in 2006. Shakira's latin influence feels like a flashback to the mid-to-early 2000s that feels very welcome in a time where everyone, including Rihanna, wants to make unconventional art pop. - Martin_Canine

12 When You Believe - Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston
13 Girls - Rita Ora, Cardi B, Bebe Rexha & Charli XCX
