G98.7FM Entertainment News
Lionel Richie is planning a collaboration with Adele in the future!
The legendary singer revealed the pair have talked, and that a duet is “in the works.”
“We are going to be doing something together -that’s already almost in the works.” Richie explained, “I can almost say that we are talking, but right now she has a mission.”
The 66 year-old bonded with the British superstar because the two have something in common when it comes to Adele’s chart-topping hit ‘Hello.’ – his ‘Hello’ song was released back in 1983. Richie also cleared the air with E! News, over the number of people accusing Adele of “copying” Lionel’s track title.
“You have no idea how many people called me on the phone and said, ‘Are you going to let her get away with that? She stole ‘Hello’!’
“Then I said, ‘I don’t own ‘Hello.’ I own the melody.’ But, what it did was it blew everything to the ceiling. The conversation came up. If you say Adele and you say Lionel or Lionel and Adele … that’s the best pairing you could have!”
Speaking of ‘Hello,’ watch this fun clip of “Lionel from the 80s” responds to Adele in her “Hello” music video!
