Mixing business with pleasure happens all the time -- especially if we're talking about the music business!
You might say that featuring your bae in a music video is kind of like the singer-songwriter's equivalent to getting an arm tattoo with your loved one's name on it. It's a risky move
. But what's the point of being a pop star if you can't make bold declarations of love and permanence with reckless abandon?
Here are a few of the artists who took that chance, and put their significant others in their videos.
1. Zayn Malik, "Pillowtalk" feat. Gigi Hadid
Rumors swirled that Gigi and the former One Directioner were together
before the video came out. Sure enough, shortly after its release, the relationship was confirmed.
2. John Legend, "All of Me" feat. Chrissy Teigen
All of this is still going great for the couple, who wed in 2013. In fact, they are expecting their first child this year.
3. Adam Levine (Maroon 5), "Animals" feat. Behati Prinsloo
While this bloody video -- released a month after they said "I do" -- may not be for the faint of heart, Adam and his Victoria's Secret model wife have been smooth sailing since getting married in 2014.
4. Seal, "Secret" feat. Heidi Klum
Sadly, the couple, who sing a duet called "Wedding Song" on the same 2010 album that "Secret" appears (Seal 6: Commitment), divorced in 2014. However, as far as exes go, they seem to still be friendly.
5. Nick Jonas, "Jealous" feat. Olivia Culpo
"I'm doing OK," Nick told ET last June after the couple broke up
. The singer had previously admitted that his single was written about Olivia. "It's very tough and we had a beautiful two years together and [I have] nothing but love and respect for her."
6. Pink, "True Love" feat. Carey Hart
This was actually Pink's fourth video featuring the motocross racer. The two share a daughter, 4-year-old Willow.
Michael and Luisana married in 2011 and have two adorable kids, Noah and Elias.
8. Kanye West, "Bound 2" feat. Kim Kardashian
This head-turning video was perhaps immortalized by Seth Rogen and James Franco's amazing shot for shot parody
. As for the couple, you probably know what's going on in their lives seeing as we write about them all the time.
9. Jason Derulo, "Marry Me" feat. Jordin Sparks
Sadly, "marry" they did not, as the couple split after three years together in 2014. Jason later told Ryan Seacrest "pressure of marriage" was one of the causes of their downfall.
10. Jennifer Lopez, "Dance Again" feat. Casper Smart
Casper was J.Lo's backup dancer before they started dating. They split in 2014, but got back together a few months later.
11. Jennifer Lopez, "Jenny From the Block" feat. Ben Affleck
Yep, J.Lo has two entries on this list! At the very least, this classic hit is better remembered than one of her and Ben's other collaborations, Gigli...
But all this really proves is you can have multiple videos with your exes and still be one of the most badass people in the business.
Follow your heart, people.
