Most are Marvin and Tammi.

But going back a little further -- Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald recorded some of the great duets of all time. Ella anf Louis (1956) is a classic. Other songs include "Learnin' The Blues" and "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm."

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Yessss! That's him! And I want to say Marylyn Martin sings with Phil on "Separate Lives" but I'm not entirely sure: I've just started taking Ginkgo Biloba this week & it hasn't kicked in with this old lady brain of mine, yet lol

same here..im a lifelong Diana Ross stan too...i still listen to the Supremes very first hit record,"When The Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes" at least once a week...my mother had told me that when i would cry as a baby, her or my father would play that record, or "In Crowd" by Dobie Gray, and lay me in front of the speakers and i would immediately be quiet and content...if they ever made a movie of my life, those two songs would be the very first songs playing in the soundtrack...ive always LOVED Diana Ross...her performance in "Lady Sings The Blues" is the greatest acting performance of ALL time...and no one can tell me otherwise

I've always loved Linda Ronstadt's duet with Aaron Neville - Don't Know Much. Beautiful.

I also love the entire Ray Charles Genius Loves Company duets.

Prince and Rosie Gaines - Nothing Compares.....

Adore this one.

Also, I now see some duets listed where a group is one of the duet partners. So if that meets the definition, I'll add

Under Pressure -- David Bowie and Queen

I love Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald doing Dream a Little Dream of Me, and Summertime.

Also, Carly Simon and James Taylor's version of Mockingbird.
