Who Is The Most Powerful Dynamic Duo In Black Culture? (VOTE)

After giving the rundown on our 21 runners-up, and weeks of chronicling our finalists, there’s little left for us to say on who we believe dominate and define America’s most powerful black couples.

But what, then, do you have to say?

We may be down to our top 8 couples who lead the pack—from Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz to Carmelo and La La Anthony (not to mention, you know, the President and First Lady), but we’re leaving it entirely you, the reader, to ultimately decide who will reign supreme.

Cast your votes in our bracket below, and be sure to check back over the course of the next few days to ensure your picks make their way into the following rounds before we announce the winner on Sunday, Dec. 30.

  • Round 1: Wed. 26
  • Round 2: Thurs. 27
  • Round 3: Fri. 28 - Sat. 29
