Female Duets Karaoke Edition

“Telephone” – Lady Gaga and Beyoncé

Kicking off our popular duet songs section is Queen Bey and the quirky Lady Gaga with Telephone.

It is an upbeat tune with a short rap, and plenty of scope for dance moves, plus some sick accessories like cigarette glasses, Coca-Cola hair rollers, and a caution tape dress!

It was recorded in 2009 and released on 26, January 2010.

The epic video is akin to a short movie at just under 10 minutes long and starts with Gaga being arrested.

Beyoncé collects Gaga from prison and tells her she’s been a very bad girl then they set off to cause some havoc.

Apparently Telephone was written for Britney Spears but she rejected in resulting in Gaga claiming it as her own for her album, The Fame Monster.

“Me Against the Music” – Madonna and Britney Spears

A seamless link to the next option on our famous female duets list!

Introducing the Queen of Pop, Madonna and Britney Spears who sang Me Against the Machine together in 2003 (released October 14), five years after Britney smashed into the 90s pop scene with Baby One More Time.
