UPDATE: Or, we should say, Very Important Update! According to Lionel Richie we can expect a real live Adele/Lionel collaboration sometime in the [near?] future. In the words of the man himself, “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,” he said. “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.” So… that’s a sure thing right? We’re going to take it as a yes.
Poor, lonely Lionel Richie. After over 30 years of asking, there’s still nobody looking for him. Especially Adele.
In a hilarious new fan mash-up video that combines Richie’s 1984 hit “Hello” with Adele’s new single of the same name, we see the British chanteuse placing a lonely call on her cell phone. But when she gets a hold of Lionel on the other end, who passionately asks if its him she’s looking for, well…let’s just say he’s left hanging. It’s so good!
But don’t feel too bad for lonely ol’ Lionel. He loved it and posted it himself!
He also posted a split-screen shot asking Adele directly if he could be the one.
HELLO @adele is it me you’re looking for… #hello A photo posted by lionelrichie (@lionelrichie) on
See! Lionel has a great sense of humour. Someone respond to the guy’s call already!
Um, hello? Now we want more Adele. Luckily we can watch CTV’s exclusive presentation of Adele Live in London right here:
