A long, long time ago, we used to post about strange duets in music and simply called it: Weird Collabs. Now, since Halloween is just about two weeks away, we know that you and your significant other / best friend / sibling / your pet (?) want to think of a couples costume you can make — and fast. Well, fear not fellow Halloween lovers, for we’re counting down three weird collaborative lyrics that would make AMAZING Halloween costumes! Check ‘em out (at your own risk…muhahahaha):
3. Gotye ft. Kimbra — Somebody That I Used To Know
“No, you didn’t have to stoop so low / Have your friends collect your records and then change your number / Guess that I don’t need that though / Now you’re just somebody that I used to know”
We do think that these quirky artists are a pretty good fit together, so why are we labeling their duet as a weird collab? Well, I guess we’re basing our thoughts on the weirdness of this video. As Gotye and Kimbra slowly become covered in striking graphic paint, we think to ourselves: are they breaking up? Are they back together? Are they collaborating on some strange art project instead of a song? No matter what questions we ask, this would be a pretty amazing Halloween costume! All you need is some sort of body suit (unless you want to go without one, although that would be rather cold), wigs that match Gotye and Kimbra’s hair, and somebody with some extreme painting skills. Shouldn’t be too hard, right?
2. Flo Rida ft. Sia — Wild Ones
“I-I like crazy, foolish, stupid / Party going wild, fist pumping / Music, I might lose it / Blast to the roof, that’s how we do’z it”
Again, this isn’t necessarily the weirdest collab we’ve ever heard of, but it does kind of strike us as odd that a well-credited European pop star like Sia is singing on a muscle-bound American pop-rapper like Flo Rida’s track. Never the less, this Halloween costume is sure to be “wild”. If you lack Flo’s muscles, just wear socks that match your skin tone on your arms and stuff them with socks to make you look bulked up, while sporting a black tank top and some serious bling. All you need for Sia are some flowy, hippie-esque clothes and a cute blonde bob wig.
1. Justin Bieber ft. Nicki Minaj — Beauty And A Beat
“Cause all I need / Is a beauty and a beat / Who can make my life complete”
Here’s a collabo we find just straight weird, although they are two of the world’s hottest pop stars at the moment: Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber! Their song “Beauty And A Beat” is a big one right now, especially because of all the hype surrounding the music video, so the timing couldn’t be more right to go as this unlikely duo. Justin is pretty easy if you already have short hair, you just need to spike it up a bit! A black t-shirt, skinny jeans and hi-top sneakers would complete JB’s look. As for Nicki, you have it a bit harder, but her look would be fun to dress in for sure! A pink wig, tank top, tutu skirt, knee socks and sneakers would transform you into Nicki no problem.
