Common and Erykah Badu

When a politically-conscious rapper and a neo-soul queen get together, they're bound to make beautiful music. That's exactly what this couple did on their ode to hip hop, "Love of My Life." Sadly, they broke up in 2002 after two years of dating, and according to Common, it didn't end well. "She called me and was like, 'Hey, I don't want to be in this relationship no more. I be liking somebody else,'" the rapper recalls. Surely, a breakup like that inspired some sad love songs.
