Celebs We Want to Go On Tour Together

Joint tours are the ultimate treat to the fans because we get to have our faves all on one stage. With Trey Songz and his bestie Chris Brown going on tour together, we started thinking about who else should touch down a few cities together. Here’s some stars we'd love to see hit the road together.

Rihanna & Ciara

The don’t like each other but if they went on tour, they could make up for what the other lacks. Ciara commands the stage with her dynamic choreography and overall performance quality, but her lack of a colossal hit is where RiRi comes in.

K. Michelle & Keyshia Cole

This songbirds have catalogs equipped to get any Vixen through a lovesick time.  Seeing them on tour would give us flashbacks of bad breakups as we sing along to their heartbreak anthems. However, with their rap sheet when it comes to friendships, they may end up beefing before the tour is over. 

Missy Elliott & Pharrell

Pharrell and Missy have been putting on for their city when it comes to VA reps. Pharrell has been having a big year, racking up Oscar and Grammy nominations while Missy is hiding from the spotlight. A tour that'll have Missy's antics on stage and having a set full of Pharrell’s hits from the past 15 years would be a must-see.

Iggy Azalea & Rita Ora

By the looks of the success of their collabo “Black Widow,” putting Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora together seems to work well. “Black Widow” has become Iggy’s third top ten hit and is taking mainstream radio by storm. On stage, the Aussie femcee and the UK songstress seem to have great chemistry. Let’s put that chemistry on an international test.

Brandy & Monica

Brandy and Monica commanded the 90s and early 2000s with their mega hits, like their inaugural Grammy-winning collaboration, “Boy Is Mine." Putting these two together on tour would give us that yearning 90s nostalgia all over again.

Mary J. Blige & Jazmine Sullivan

Jazmine is obviously a soul descendant of MJB. Their voices are full of soul, edge and their songs represent the struggle when it comes to love. These tickets would surely sell out.

Drake and The Weeknd

Would we like a tour?  Why, yes we would! When these two Canadians come together on a track it turns into gold. Since The Weeknd has been said to be the alter ego of Drake’s rap persona these two should take their  Toronto sounds on the road.

T.I and Young Jeezy

T.I may hold the throne as the King of Atlanta but Young Jeezy is definitely a part of his reigning party.  Jeezy may have some restrictions as to where he can go right now due to yet another run in with the law (which I’m sure Tip can understand) but once he’s clear, that tour should be set for take off.

august alsina and chris brown

August Alsina and Chris Brown

In R&B, August Alsina and Chris Brown can be seen as the bad boys. They get themselves into trouble but you can’t help but love them for their stellar vocals and boyish good looks. Putting these two together might result in some mischief but would be vocally and (visually) appealing.

jhene aiko and mila j

Jhene Aiko and Mila J

Though they are sisters, they give off two totally different vibes. While Jhene gives us a hippie aura her big sis Mila J gives more of a hip hop feel, polishing it off with a tomboy look combined with sex appeal.

j.cole and kendrick lamar

J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar

There were once talks of an album between the two but we have yet to see that happen. To hold us over until the wordsmiths hop in the studio together, the two lyrically inclined MCs should embark on the tour to satisfy the the J. Cole enthusiasts and TDE stans alike.

Whitney Houston's Close Friend Robyn Crawford Details Romantic Relationship In New Memoir

Whitney Houston's personal life has been explored ten times over since her untimely passing in 2012 but one of her closest friends wants to share with the world the Whitney she knew and ultimately fell in love with.

In excerpts to People Wednesday (Nov. 6), Robyn Crawford presents a strong bond between the two in her new memoir, A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston. The singer and Crawford met in their youth while working at a summer camp in East Orange, New Jersey. From there, their friendship blossomed into something more romantic. With homophobia running rampant in the 80s, Crawford says they never looked at labels but enjoyed the experiences they shared together.

“We never talked about labels, like lesbian or gay,” writes Crawford. “We just lived our lives and I hoped it could go on that way forever.”

As their journey continued, Whitney's star began to rise which put allegedly put their romance on ice. “She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore,” writes Crawford. "Because it would make our journey even more difficult. She said if people find out about us, they would use this against us....and back in the ’80s, that’s how it felt. I kept it safe. I found comfort in my silence.”

Whitney's relationship with Crawford was mentioned in the 2018 documentary Whitney. Created by the singer's estate, the film focused on the singer's legacy and didn't include first-hand accounts from Crawford. Family members were weary of their special friendship.

"I’ve never seen them do anything but I know that she was something that I didn’t want my sister to be involved with," Whitney's brother Gary stated in the documentary.

But Crawford is finally ready to tell her own story while "lifting" Houston's legacy.

“I wanted to lift her legacy, give her respect and share the story of who she was before the fame, and in that, to embrace our friendship,” she tells People. "I'd come to the point where I felt the need to stand up for our friendship. And I felt an urgency to stand up and share the woman behind the incredible talent."

A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston is expected to hit bookshelves this fall.
