The past and the future combined in , a year of satisfying comebacks from veteran artists and exciting breakouts from newer ones. Read the list below, with a Spotify playlist of all at the bottom. An unlikely combination of three very different alt-leaning acts, "I've Been Waiting" is far more seamless than it has any right to be, finding common ground in the artists' shared pop sensibilities. As it toggles between vocals from all three, it's impossible to tell where the verses stop and the chorus starts -- it's all hooks, really, a song where every part feels like That Part.

What is it about duet songs that make them so appealing? Perhaps it is as simple as the fact that they are very often a love song, and everyone loves a love song. The best duets move us in ways that other music may not. We have come up with what we consider to be the best duets of all time. At the other end of the musical spectrum, we have soul divas like Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Diana Ross , Janet Jackson with their respective male, and sometimes female, partners. In fact, whatever music you like, we are sure there are lots here that will appeal. Open your ears and enjoy the company of two voices, very often singing as one, and always singing brilliantly. However, you left out Dusty Springfield who contributed in a magnificent way to the song. In fact the song was written for her. Please make a correction!
