Aquarius Musicians Who Have the Same Birthday (& Should Collaborate)
Aquarius musicians are often discussed on my site. Chances are, you’ve seen one of my zodiac posts, because they are by far the most popular posts on my site. I started going through my lists of artists and thought, hey, what if these artists collaborated solely because they have the same birthday?
Now, here we are. I’ve listed every Aquarius musician ever here, and I’ve discussed what being an Aquarius means for your music career here. Now, I want to fantasize about what it would be like if these Aquarians collaborated. Join me in what is sure to be an interesting and weird musical exploration!

Aquarius Musicians with the Same Birthday
A lot of these probably won’t make sense, but that makes them even better and more interesting! If I missed anyone, or if you’re dying for a different collab, please let me know:My ideal Aquarius collab: Click To Tweet
The only criteria I have for these collabs is that they have the same birthday, and that they’re still alive. I know you can technically duet with a dead person, but that always creeps me out for some reason.
So, here are my ideal collabs for Aquarius Musicians:
Kiss & Bullet for My Valentine
Paul Stanley of KISS and Matthew Tuck of BFMV share the same January 20th birthday. I’m sure you’ve heard of KISS, but just in case:
Bullet for My Valentine is a metal band from Wales. Matthew Tuck is their lead vocalist and guitar player:
People born on this day are said to be exciting and entertaining, and that’s certainly true for these two! This would be a good collab I think.
Billy Ocean & The Spice Girls
Okay okay, I know. It’s weird. But Billy Ocean is awesome and he shares his January 21st birthday with Emma Bunton, aka Baby Spice. Billy Ocean is a fantastic R&B singer with this major hit in 1988:
The Spice Girls were a Millennial phenomenon with a ridiculous amount of hits. Emma Bunton, known as Baby Spice, was the cute blonde one. Each woman was reduced to one narrow personality aspect, as is common in boy/girl bands:
People born this day are dependable and wise, so this would be a cool song with a great group of people! Emma Bunton also has solo music, so she could do a duet with Billy Ocean one on one.
Logic & Ben Taylor
You may know of Logic the rapper, but did you know his real name is Sir Robert Bryson Hall II? I guess “Sir” is actually part of his name and not a title, which is wild. Can I legally change my name to “Her Royal Highness Mella”? I may look into it.
Sir Logic announced his retirement in 2020, but every musician does that and eventually comes back so I’m not counting him out yet. He’s collabed with Eminem previously:
If you haven’t heard of Ben Taylor, you should. His parents are James Taylor and Carly Simon, so he’s quite literally music royalty. He’s also a fantastic musician and songwriter:
I think these two would be great, similar to Eminem and Ed Sheeran on River. Both share a January 22nd birthday, which makes them adaptable and attentive. Perfect for a unique collab!
Daveed Diggs & Aaron Neville
SHUT UP THIS WOULD BE AMAZING. Both born January 24th, Daveed Diggs rose to fame by playing Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton, but has done a lot since then:
Aaron Neville is a very unique R&B singer and my dad is/was obsessed with him:
People born this day are known to be innovative and genuine. Perfect collab, let’s please make this one happen!
Anita Baker & Kirk Franklin
I kind of can’t believe this hasn’t happened yet. Anita Baker is/was HUGE in Detroit when I was a kid. She’s known for her very unique voice and passionate R&B songs:
Baker shares her January 26th birthday with Kirk Franklin, a gospel legend. I want to show you this song specifically, because it’s one of my faves and also the singer sort of sounds like Anita Baker
Different genres, sure, but together they would sound phenomenal! January 26th Aquarians are said to be philosophical and creative, which is perfect for the genre blending and incredible music that would happen!
J. Cole & Marvin Sapp
Another Gospel/R&B mashup, but I love both of these genres so I’m excited. J. Cole is a singer/songwriter and rapper:
Born January 28th, he shares his birthday with Marvin Sapp, a gospel music singer/songwriter (and I think also pastor?):
January 28th Aquarians are said to be respectful and confident. Both of these traits would be ideal in a collab, and I think their voices and styles would work well together!
N*Sync & the Backstreet Boys
Line up, millennial thots! (JK you’re not thots that’s mean. You’re gorgeous and you’re allowed to fangirl over whoever you want). But, did you know that Joey Fatone of N*Sync and Nick Carter of BSB have the same birthday? A lot of you probably did, but I didn’t. They share a January 28th birthday (also with J.Cole and Marvin Sapp above, but these pairings made more sense to me).
There were endless debates over which group was better, but they were both massive in their day. Here’s N*Sync:
They actually came out after the Backstreet Boys, and both were owned by the incredibly shady Lou Pearlman. If you haven’t heard of that situation, I highly recommend looking into it because it’s wild. There’s a free documentary about it on YouTube here.
Here are the Backstreet Boys, who are still making music as a group even recently:
Not surprising at all, people have made a ton of mashups of the two groups. I still think they should make a whole new song together. Maybe about their shared Lou Pearlman experience?
People born January 28th are also known as successful and mysterious, which may or may not help a collaborative effort. But I say we find out!
Adam Lambert & Rag’N’Bone Man
Wow wow wow I am so excited for this one. Both born January 29th, these are two incredible, powerhouse vocalists who should absolutely duet. Adam Lambert rose to fame on American Idol, where he didn’t win but went on to release his own music and tour with Queen.
Rag’n’Bone Man is Rory Graham, a British singer/songwriter with an incredible voice:
Does that song not take your breath away? Absolute chills. People born this day are known as inspiring and supportive, and they’re both incredible vocalists so I really want this to happen.
Kid Cudi & Phil Collins
Born January 30th, that’s probably the only thing these two have in common. However, the potential for greatness is high! Kid Cudi, aka Scott Miscudi, is a singer/songwriter and rapper:
If you haven’t heard of Kid Cudi, you’ve most likely heard of Phil Collins. After a successful career with the band Genesis, he went on to have an incredibly successful solo career:
Those born January 30th are said to be intuitive and spiritual, which I think we can see from both of their music. There have certainly been other unusual collabs that went well, so I think this is worth hoping for!
Justin Timberlake & Sex Pistols
I guess technically this could be N*Sync & the Sex Pistols, but let’s be real…JT can stand on his own. His solo career has almost eclipsed his N*Sync career, which is mind-blowing.
Timberlake shares his January 31st birthday with John Lydon of the Sex Pistols, a British punk rock band. Lydon is their lead singer::
People born this day are said to be generous and resilient. In co-writing terms, that means they’ll wait in a really long line at Starbucks to get drinks for everyone.
Would this be a good collab? I have no idea but let me know what you think!
Mumford and Sons & Florida Georgia Line
This one would be weird as hell, but why not? Marcus Mumford shares a January 31st birthday with Tyler Hubbard of FGL. You may notice they share birthdays with Justin Timberlake and John Lydon above, but I felt these pairings were better. Mumford & Sons is an indie-folk band:
Florida Georgia Line is a country pop band. They’ve done a ton of collabs with different artists. This duet with Hailee Steinfeld is my fave:
Kind and giving are the traits for January 31st babies. This would not be a stretch for FGL at all and I think they could make something really cool.
Harry Styles & Lisa Marie Presley
Born February 1st, these two icons would make a fantastic song. Harry Styles started in One Direction, but has since gone on to have an amazing solo career:
Lisa Marie Presley is Elvis’s daughter, but she’s a fantastic singer in her own right:
Creative and honest, these two would work very well together. I also adore Harry Styles’ friendship with Stevie Nicks, so I think he needs more powerful women in his circle.
Daddy Yankee & Sean Kingston
Both born February 3rd, these two would go well together and I was surprised to see that they haven’t collaborated before. Daddy Yankee, aka Ramón Rodríguez, is a singer/songwriter/rapper:
Sean Kingston, aka Kisean Anderson, is also a singer/songwriter/rapper:
Wouldn’t they be good together?? People born February 3rd are said to be artistic & logical, which would make for a great duet.
Alice Cooper & Natalie Imbruglia
Kind of a weird one, but hear me out. Born February 4th, Alice Cooper is a legendary rock singer:
Fun fact: I accidentally saw him live forever ago. It was at the Michigan State Fair, and we thought we were seeing Gladys Knight (I think? I don’t remember, I’ve seen hundreds of artists at the fair) but then smoke filled the stage and a guy in a tuxedo coat and top hat came out. It was a great show and I wasn’t upset that I was in the wrong place.
Natalie Imbruglia is a singer/songwriter from Australia, probably best known for her single “Torn”:
It would be a weird duet, but weird is good! People born this day are determined & organized, so they can work together to make this happen.
Clint Black & Gavin DeGraw
Both of these artists were also born February 4th, so they could interchange with Alice Cooper or Natalie Imbruglia. I just think this collab would be pretty good. Clint Black is a country singer who was also on Celebrity Apprentice (give me a break, okay?! I watched it forever ago).
Gavin DeGraw is a singer-songwriter. He’s not “country” but could easily switch into that genre if needed:
February 4th people are known as reasonable and idealistic, which may or may not help a collab, I’m not sure. Either way I think this could be a decent song and they should do it.
Bobby Brown & Sara Evans
I truly don’t think this would work, lol, but why not find out? Born February 5th, Bobby Brown is Whitney Houston’s ex-husband. However, he also makes his own music. While he has released solo music more recently, this is probably his best-known hit:
He falls pretty squarely into the R&B/pop category. Sara Evans, on the other hand, is a country music singer:
I’m not saying this couldn’t work. Country and R&B have absolutely blended together before. Aquarius musicians born on February 5th are friendly and captivating, so if nothing else, they’d probably get along well.
Rick Astley & Tinashe
This one isn’t so far out of the realm of possibility, is it? Born February 6th, Rick Astley is a cultural icon due to this song:
If you’re under 400 years old, you might not know what “Rick Rolling” is. Basically, it’s sending someone a link to something, but it winds up being this song instead. It was a huge thing in the dark ages of the internet. Rick Astley is still making music, so he’s doing quite well.
Tinashe is an R&B singer/songwriter:
People born on February 6th are independent, but Rick Astley will never give Tinashe up or let her down, so we’re safe.
Garth Brooks & Godsmack
This one probably wins as the weirdest possible collab, but Brooks shares his February 7th birthday with Sully Erna of Godsmack. Garth Brooks is a massively successful country singer:
Godsmack is a rock band that everyone flipped out about initially, due to their blasphemous name. However, they’ve continued to have quite a successful career:
I’m sure it will shock you to hear that no one has made a mashup of these two, and they have not collaborated previously. However, people born February 7th are interesting & charming, so that should help them get along when they write a sick collab.
Carole King & Travis Tritt
This one could work. Born February 9th, Carole King is a legendary singer/songwriter:
She definitely leans into blues a bit, which would make a country collab pretty easy. Travis Tritt is a country singer, but his lyrics are deep enough that they can fall into folk/singer/songwriter category as well:
I think this would be really good and I want it to happen. Aquarius musicians born February 7th are motivated & cooperative, which is also perfect for a collab.
Girls’ Generation & Pierce the Veil
Another weird collab, but could be cool? Choi Soo-young of Girls’ Generation shares her February 10th birthday with Vic Fuentes of Pierce the Veil. Girls’ Generation is, of course, a major Kpop girl group:
Pierce the Veil is a rock band, and Vic Fuentes is one of the brothers who founded the band, and also its lead vocalist:
I am all about interesting collabs, and I think this would be one. People born February 10th are known as ambitious and talented, which makes a lot of sense. It’s also great for a collab!
Brandy & Kelly Rowland
SHUT UP I LOVE BRANDY SO MUCH. Kelly Rowland is incredible also of course. Both born February 11th, Brandy is an iconic R&B queen and also an actor. She started on the show “Moesha” and also acted in “Cinderella” with my idol, Whitney Houston.
Although she needs no introduction, Kelly Rowland started in Destiny’s Child and has since had her own successful career:
They don’t appear to have collabed before, but here is an interview where Brandy responds to a compliment from Kelly Rowland, so they do know each other! Aquarius musicians born February 10th are inquisitive and loving, which is always good for a collaborative effort.
Michael McDonald & Mike Posner
This could be a great collab, for real. Born February 12th, Michael McDonald got his start in Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers, then went on to his own massive success:
Mike Posner is a singer/songwriter who grew up in my hometown. Unlike me, he then went on to become a very successful music act:
This is Posner’s biggest hit, but he does have a lot of songs that I think would work with Michael McDonald’s style. Aquarians born today are logical and loyal, so…there’s that.
Feist & Peter Gabriel
This one could seriously work! Born February 13th, Feist and Peter Gabriel are similar enough to make this work. Feist is a singer/songwriter with an ethereal quality to her voice:
Peter Gabriel is also a singer/songwriter who became an icon after his song was used in “Say Anything.” The scene where John Cusack holds the stereo in the rain? That’s this song:
Guess what?? These two have already collabed!
This is a live version, but I think they should make a studio collab. Aquarius musicians born February 13th are determined and optimistic, which are great attitudes for co-writing.
BROCKHAMPTON & Rob Thomas
Matt Champion of BROCKHAMPTON shares his February 14th birthday with Rob Thomas. While this is a great day for love (or declaring how stupid the day is), this is also a good day for a unique collab! BROCKHAMPTON is an “alternative hip hop band” according to their Wikipedia. I don’t think that description encapsulates all they do though:
Rob Thomas started in a rock band called Matchbox 20 but went solo and had a ton of success:
People born this day are intellectual and friendly. I don’t know if that makes for a good collab but they would definitely have an interesting sound!
Birdman & Megan Thee Stallion
Bryan Williams, aka rapper Birdman, shares his February 15th birthday with fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion. Birdman emerged in the 90s in Cash Money Records. He has since gone on to do solo work and collaborate with other artists:
Megan Thee Stallion started on SoundCloud in 2016, then slowly but surely grew into a massive success:
People born this day are passionate and energetic, which we can see in both of their work. I think this would be an awesome collab and I hope it happens!
Ice-T & The Weeknd
Tracy Marrow, aka Ice-T, shares his February 16th birthday with Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd. Ice-T is more known today for his reality TV shows, but he is also a platinum-selling rapper. He’s also still releasing music currently:
The Weeknd was one of the top-10 selling artists of 2020 (you can see my full post about him and the other artists here). He’s become an unstoppable music force:
I honestly was kind of surprised to see these two haven’t worked together before. People born this day are dynamic and magnetic, which we can clearly see. Let’s make this happen this year!
Chante Moore & Ed Sheeran
I kind of love this idea. R&B queen Chante Moore shares a February 17th birthday with Pop/Soul king Ed Sheeran. Chante Moore is an icon and has an amazing voice and I love her so much:
Of course, we all know Ed Sheeran. Love him or hate him, the dude can write a song. He does have kind of a soul vibe to a lot of his songs, and he did a duet with Beyonce that sounded great.
Why shouldn’t this happen? This should absolutely happen. People born this day are said to be compassionate and trustworthy, which is great for collaborating.
Dr. Dre & BTS
Okay, but this would actually be cool. Dre shares a February 18th birthday with J-Hope of BTS. In case you forgot about Dre, he is the creator of Beats Headphones. He also has a ton of rap hits and has produced a lot of great artists:
BTS, if you’ve just landed at Earth today, is one of the biggest K-Pop bands of all time:
Tell me one reason why this collab wouldn’t be amazing. This should absolutely happen. People born today are intriguing and progressive, but that doesn’t matter because this collab should happen regardless of any potential roadblocks.
Seventeen & Regina Spektor
This is actually a triple birthday! Both Chwe Hansoi and Lee Seokmin (aka DK) of Seventeen have a February 18th birthday, and they share it with Regina Spektor (as well as Dr. Dre and J-Hope above). Seventeen is a widely successful Kpop band:
Regina Spektor is a singer/songwriter with a unique, quirky sound:
People born this day are motivated and meticulous. I think their sounds together could sound really cool.
