Hello: Adele & Lionel Richie Duet On the Way

adele lionel riche duet thatgrapejuice

Grammy winning music superstars Lionel Richie and Adele both took their respective megahits, ‘Hello,’ to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 over 30 years apart.  But, if what Richie reports is true, they may be sharing a spot on that very chart soon.

After a host of memes and Vine videos jokingly joined the two hits (like that seen above), the ‘Say You, Say Me’ singer says he was inspired to reach out to the diva’s team to coordinate a meeting.  That meeting could soon see the duo saying hello in a studio to cook up a new hit:

Via E! News:

“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.”

“We are going to be doing something together—that’s already almost in the works…I can almost say that we are talking, but right now she has a mission.” “Her mission is [to] get her record out and go on tour, so until she finishes that cycle, that won’t happen just yet. She is committed to that.” – Lionel Richie

    I can’t see why SHE would bother. And btw tgj, LR’s Hello came out more than 30 years ago.

    I hope Adele’s people simply said yes, but that they’ll find some way to make this not work. It’s so unnecessary, and only benefits Lionel. Can’t imagine she’s ever wanted to work with this guy. Perhaps she wants to meet Nicole.

  4. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans December 11, 2015

    I’m here for a “Still” duet. It would be so cute and possibly get Lionel another last #1 before he passes away when his time comes. It would be really nice and sweet for that to happen.

    I’m down for this, these immature TGJ kids will never understand the purpose of this collaboration. I want an adult contemporary kinda song from these two.

      A Nicki fan is talking about kids and adults? Let’s talk about Nicki bailing out her brother (an adult) after being charged raping a 12 year old kid.

        Let Me Get You Up Too Date Hun, Nicki Didn’t Bail Her Sick Brother Out… Her Mother Carol Maraj Did! She Put Up Her House A Collateral….

    I think a Grammy performance would really be a good look for both. They like to mix and match for that award ceremony and this pair would actually make sense.

    Didn’t Beyonce sing the crap out of Hello?

    • RihYonce December 11, 2015

      Yes she did lol but hers had a different message

  8. RihYonce December 11, 2015

    I know I’m not the only one that thought of his hello when I heard about Adele’s lol
