Beyoncé and Jay — the world's gonna let you finish and all, but Rihanna and Drake are music's most powerful couple right now, according to Spotify, that is.
Based on the total combined streams Spotify's analytics pulled, Aubrih (the only nickname appropriate for Aubrey Drake Graham and Bad Gal RiRi) came in on top. Rihanna also landed second place with former beau Chris Brown. (Remember, this study was based on song streams in relation to music couples, past and present.) Rih's honor isn't too shabby for an artist who hasn't released a new album in two years and just won iHeartRadio's Artist of The Year award.
Bey & Jay rounded out the top three, coming in third place. Former couple Katy Perry and John Mayer took fourth, while another former couple, Harry Styles and Taylor Swift, took fifth. Oddly, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, the backup dancer Spears wed pre-Blackout era, made it onto the list. Apparently, Spotify users are still getting down to KFed's "Popozão." (Marie Claire)
