Where’s the next male/female duo?

Wednesday May 13th, 2009 / 08:51 Written by

Whenever I talk to older people about music, they always refer me to the 70’s. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard something like, “I’m not saying today’s music is bad, but the 70’s…now that’s when music was music!” I’d be rich. Usually, I laugh at things like that but as I was thinking about how music has changed over the years, I realized something is missing. Where are the male/female duos? We know it can be done – just look at Ashford & Simpson and Peaches & Herb. I know we’ve had some really good song duets over the last few decades (Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, Lionel Richie & Diana Ross, Donny Hathaway & Roberta Flack, even Eric Benet & Faith Evans), but I’m ready for the next male/female duo. Do you think we’ll ever see another good one?

  • Good question! I think there will be another good one soon. Maybe Kindred could hold us over for a while. :)
