Nothing says romantic than karaoke night with your significant other. Let’s face it, singing with a partner is way more fun. And you get to say cheesy stuff without feeling too embarrassed about it. 

However, it can be pretty tough finding that perfect song for you to belt out together. Not to worry, here is a list of karaoke songs you can sing with your significant other. 

“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” – Elton John and Kiki Dee

This classic song is a staple for any karaoke duet. Not only is it easy to sing, but it also has a fun rhythm and music to warm the crowd up and start your evening with a blast. 

“The Time of My Life” – Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes 

This was featured in the 1987 film Dirty Dancing as its theme song and is a certified bop with several awards under its belt. This song has easy lyrics and an upbeat tune that would put you and your partner in your personal, romantic dance routine. 

“Like I’m Gonna Lose You” – Meghan Trainor and John Legend

This doo-wop ballad was featured in Meghan Trainor’s album, Title. The song is about the uncertainty of the future and appreciating what we have now by making the most of it. The song does have a high register, but as long as you put lots of emotion into your performance, you won’t mess it up. 

“Endless Love” – Diana Ross and Lionel Richie 

We won’t lie, this is definitely a tough song to sing. But it’s a duet classic, and you just have to embrace it. Even if you don’t have the talent to pull this song off flawlessly, you can make up for it with determination and emotion, especially if you’re singing it to your partner. 

“Just Give Me a Reason” – P!nk and Nate Ruess 

This pop-rock ballad is regarded as one of P!nk’s best tracks, gaining worldwide success by topping the charts in twenty-one countries after its release in 2013. The song is pretty unique as it’s a conversation between two people about their relationship. Since it’s a rock song, you’ll have to put some power in your voice, especially in the chorus part. 

“Señorita” – Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello 

This Latin-pop track was one of 2019’s highlights, topping charts worldwide and landing itself as the third best-selling single of that year. A suggestive song about an ambiguous relationship, the song is catchy and has a suave guitar melody that makes you and your partner feel like breaking into a salsa. 

“Start of Something New” – Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens 

You’ll be familiar with this song if you’ve watched High School Musical before. It’s a sweet and adorable number that marks the first meeting of the protagonists in the movie. 

“Shallow” – Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper 

One of the best movie tracks in 2018, “Shallow” is a power ballad from the film A Star Is Born. It speaks about impulsive love and the need to never look back. Confidence will be your best friend for this song, unless you got the skills, as Lady Gaga’s vocals can be hard to follow.  

“You’re the One That I Want” – John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John 

This song is another instant must for duets, which is why it’s a no-brainer for this list. Performed in the 1978 musical Grease, this song is one of the best-selling singles in history. It’s a tough act to match up to John’s and Olivia’s vocals, but as long as you’re having fun, you’ve basically pulled the song off.  

“Promiscuous” – Nelly Furtado and Timbaland 

If you want an absolute banger to amp the energy up in the room, “Promiscuous” is your best pick. Aside from its catchy beat, the song isn’t hard to keep up with, and the flirty lyrics make it a great number to sing with your significant other. 

“Rewrite the Stars” – Zac Efron and Zendaya 

A track from the 2017 musical movie The Greatest Showman, this song is about taking control of our fates without letting anything decide for us. It’s a beautiful number with a creative interplay in the lyrics between the male and female lead. Efron’s part is pretty high in this song, so you might want to do some warm-ups before starting off. 

“A Whole New World” – Brad Kane and Lea Salonga 

Of course a Disney song would be on our list. They’re the best at duets. “A Whole New World” is one of their most famous numbers, having won several awards in the past. Aside from its relaxing melody, the lyrics are also easy to remember. While Salonga’s part takes some serious pipes, all you have to do is embrace the Disney princess persona to really knock it out of the park. 

“Good Time” – Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen 

Released in 2012, “Good Time” is just as the title says, a summer anthem about enjoying ourselves. With its uplifting message and energetic rhythm, anyone from all walks of life can enjoy and relate to this song. 

“We Don’t Talk Anymore” – Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez 

A pop song about the regrets of a breakup, “We Don’t Talk Anymore” is a great choice if you’re looking to add some drama to the night (or show off your skills). The song’s melody is pretty upbeat, and the lyrics are easy to remember too. You only need to deliver some slightly high notes in the chorus part of the song. 

“Crazy in Love” – Beyonce and Jay-Z

No list is complete without Queen Bey. Featuring her real-life husband as the rapper of this song, “Crazy in Love” takes on a romantic obsession in this funky and fast-paced hip-hop duet. This song demands high energy, so you’ll definitely be out of breath by the time you finish up with the outro. 

“I Know What You Did Last Summer” – Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello 

This is the kind of song that would make you and your audience sing and dance together in the room. It’s banging duet with an awesome beat and lyrics. You and your significant other will be belting it out to know what each other did last summer. 

“Islands in the Stream” – Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton 

Named after an Ernest Hemingway novel, “Islands in the Stream” was originally written by the Bee Gees for Marvin Gaye, which later was changed for Kenny Rogers’ album instead. A timeless classic, this duet is great for any generation to sing. After all, who can pass up on a Dolly Parton song? 

“Beauty and the Beast” – Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson 

We just had to add in this Disney classic. It’s a romantic duet with a lilting melody and sweet lyrics that make you feel like breaking into a ballroom dance with your partner. There are serious key changes in this song, but with some rehearsing, you’ll be able to bring this magical duet to life. 

“Come What May” – Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman 

“Come What May” is a romantic ballad about a forbidden relationship, which is interesting because this song was originally written for the film Romeo and Juliet but was featured in Moulin Rouge! instead. This is a pretty challenging song to perform with the different registers, so you sing at your own risk and hope you don’t sound too bad. 

“Love the Way You Lie” – Rihanna and Eminem 

It’s not the most romantic song to sing with your significant other, but it’s a great one for guys who like rapping to Eminem. “Love the Way You Lie” was recorded for Eminem’s album, Recovery, and has been his biggest-selling single to date. 

“Love Is an Open Door” – Kristen Bell and Santino Fontana 

Get ready to open doors with this quirky Disney duet! Taking inspiration from the film Karate Kid, “Love Is an Open Door” is a fun song that represents the perfect first date. With its bubbly melody and simple lyrics, you and your partner will be giggling the whole way through the song. 

“American Boy” – Estelle and Kanye West

From New York to LA, “American Boy” takes you to places you’d dream of going. This breezy slice of modern disco is a catchy choice to get the room into a chirpy mood. With its easy lyrics and bouncy melody, it’s a great anthem for you and your partner to sing along to. 

“If We Ever Meet Again” – Katy Perry and Timbaland 

You probably forgot about this Katy Perry song. “If We Ever Meet Again” is a song released in 2009 for Timbaland’s album Shock Value II. What puts this song on our list is that it’s a banger while also being easy to sing. 

“Cruisin'” – Gwyneth Paltrow, Huey Lewis

This version is a cover of the Smokey Robinson original, featured in the 2000 film Duets. To really sell this song, make sure to sing out the harmonies with your partner. Bonus points if you can mimic Paltrow’s sultry and graceful vocals. 

“Beauty and a Beat” – Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj 

If you want to party like it’s 3012, this fast-paced EDM and electropop track will surely bring down the house. “Beauty and a Beat” was originally written for Anton Zlasavski before it was changed to Justin Bieber. It’s definitely a fun song to sing with your partner, especially with the upbeat synths and Minaj’s rap line. 

“Yellow Hearts” – Ant Saunders and Audrey Mika 

“Yellow Hearts” is the 2018 debut single from Ant Saunders. The song gained popularity on TikTok, which later on inspired this remix. This song doesn’t have a profound message, but its simple lyrics and bubbly melody make it a cute track to sing. 

“See the Light” – Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi 

A more recent Disney addition, “See the Light” is the main track from the 2010 film Tangled. A dreamy, romantic ballad, this song is perfect for couples to get all gushy and lovey-dovey. You might not be able to hit all the notes in this song, but you can’t deny that Rapunzel and Eugene are couple goals. 

“Price Tag” – Jessie J and B.O.B

A sassy reggae track, “Price Tag” is about making the music you love without aiming for sales or people’s approval. This song was written as Jessie’s reflection of her views on her career since coming to America. 

“Dance to This” – Troye Sivan and Ariana Grande 

Ever wanted a song that’s fun to dance to without going too hard? “Dance to This” is the track you’re looking for. Catchy in its own mellow way, this song isn’t hard to sing, and it’s fun to bust a move to with your partner. 

“Stuck With U” – Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber 

“Stuck With U” is probably the lockdown couple anthem. Inspired by the 2020 global lockdown, this retro-pop ballad speaks about being grateful for the time that we have with our loved ones. Grande goes pretty high at some parts, but it’s a romantic duet that deserves to be sung with someone you adore.
