With their sultry performance "Drunk in Love," at Sunday's Grammys, Beyoncé and Jay Z gave us a friendly reminder of why they hold the title of music's hottest power couple.
But they're not the only famous couple making music, starting businesses and copping big promotional deals. On Thursday (January 30), as fans were sharing Big Sean's "1st Quarter" freestyle and admiring his girlfriend, Naya Rivera, on the debut cover of Cosmopolitan for Latinas, it got me wondering, who could be hip-hop's next power couple? Here's a rundown of potential contenders:
Naya Rivera And Big Sean
Young, hot and stylish, the "Glee" actress and G.O.O.D. Music's golden boy first linked up in April 2013 and got engaged this past October. But unlike the Carters, Naya and Sean haven't been shy about making their love public. Rivera told Cosmo (on newsstands next month) that Sean "wears the pants" in their relationship. And on Sean's new freestyle, he refers to Rivera numerous times.
Ciara And Future
Another rapper who put a ring on it recently was Future. The "Turn On the Lights" MC proposed to Ciara back in October 2013. The Atlanta songstress released her fifth album, Ciara, last March, and it included the hit "Body Party," co-written by her fiancé.
The twosome not only appeared in video together, but they shared cute couple pics on Instagram. They recently surprised everyone when Ciara announced she was pregnant with their first child together during an appearance on "The View."
Blac Chyna And Tyga
The Young Money artist and model/ex-stripper first linked up when she was cast in one of his music videos. The two now have a baby boy, Cairo, together. T-Raww has described his and Chyna's connection as a "real gangsta relationship," revealing that they even go to strip clubs together.
On the business end, Chyna has her own false-eyelash line, called Lashes, and Tyga recently posted studio pics with Kanye West, alluding to an upcoming collaboration. Not to mention that Blac Chyna is Kim Kardashian's new BFF: The besties regularly post workout photos (a.k.a. booty shots) together on Instagram and arrange playdates between Cairo and baby North.
Amber Rose And Wiz Khalifa
A certified family man, Wiz and Amber have been enjoying wedded bliss since last summer. After hooking up in 2011, Wiz proposed to his Rose in March 2012, immediately sharing the news with all his Taylors. "She Said Yes" he tweeted, with a picture of Amber's huge diamond ring.
Their adorable son, Sebastian, turns 1 next month, but parenthood hasn't made the pair any less cheeky. They often do fun joint interviews and always find time for business. Rose is working on her solo music career and is the spokesperson for Smirnoff Vodka while Wiz is currently traveling the globe for his Under the Influence Tour.
OK, so obviously nobody's really bringing it to Jay and Bey just yet, but being coupled up in hip-hop is proving to be beneficial for these up-and-comers in more ways than one.
