Here are the greatest duos in pop music history. When pop music first came onto the scene, it immediately became an important component in the music industry. Some of the most famous songs of all time came from pop groups, and in some cases, it took just two people to crank out a hit.
From the 1970s with bands like Simon and Garfunkel to more modern pop acts like La Roux, there have been plenty of great duos in pop music. You can still hear their songs on the radio all the time, and chances are good you have sung along to some of these bands in the shower at one point or another.
If you like your pop to have a bit of a new wave feel to it, then you have definitely cranked "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)" by the Eurythmics before. One pop act that has caught on in a big way in recent memory is The Chainsmokers. Their debut studio album topped the charts, in part from many of their hit singles. Other popular pop music duos include Loote and Tegan and Sara. Oh Pep! are a great indie pop duo, who recently released the LP, I wasn’t Only Thinking About You…
On this list of pop duos you’ll find great male pop duos like Hall & Oates as well as great female pop duos like Aly & AJ. Some prefer the new pop duos like Icona Pop while others prefer pop duos of the 80s such as WHAM! You also can’t forget great pop duos of the 90’s like OutKast and Savage Garden.
