By now you've probably seen Kanye West's new music video for "Bound 2", starring majestic horses, mountain tops, and the rapper's topless fiancée, Kim Kardashian. The racy clip could definitely be considered groundbreaking (at least, Kanye would say so), but it's not a new concept. Many musicians have featured their real-life lovers in music videos — some pairs, like Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, were already coupled up, while others found love on the set (we're looking at you, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend). Read on for 14 famous couples that set their love to music, and find out which ones stayed together after the director yelled "Cut!"
Beyoncé Knowles and Jay Z
From "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" to "Crazy in Love", the usually private Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles haven't shied away from putting their love on display in music videos.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
The whole Bennifer era is a blur for most of us (see: Gigli), but one of the most memorable moments from the epic courtship is Jennifer Lopez's video for "Jenny From the Block." She and Ben Affleck caroused on land and sea in the 2002 video, but it's that yacht scene that will likely go down in history.
Britney Spears and Jason Trawick
While they may be no longer, Britney Spears and her then-fiancé Jason Trawick starred together in the video for her 2011 hit "Criminal." Not only did Jason and Britney shared some very steamy love scenes in the short film, but they also went on some sort of two-person crime spree.
Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova
Enrique Iglesias reportedly began playing tennis star Anna Kournikova in 2001, but they remained pretty tight-lipped about their romance for years — even while getting down and dirty in the singer's video for "Escape" in 2002.
