Lady Antebellum Recording With Bell Biv Devoe? ‘It’s Going to Happen’
Lady Antebellum teamed up with Bell Biv Devoe on Monday evening (March 6) for a memorable Mashup Monday performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The collaboration included Bell Biv Devoe's "Poison" and Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now," and BBD's Ricky Bell confesses that this might not be the last time the bands join forces.
In an interview with TMZ, Bell hinted at the two acts getting into the studio together. While there's no plans set in place, he says music fans can't deny how well their name fits together.
"They're a great bunch of people and we actually talked about doing a collaboration because our names fit so well together -- Lady AnteBell Biv Devoe," he says. "It just flows right. We're trying to figure out if we're going to go all the way their style or our style or we're going to try to make the two meet somewhere."
When asked if Bell Biv Devoe are thinking of going country, Bell says it wouldn't be on their own.
"It would have to be a collaboration with a country artist because I don't think they would take Bell Biv Devoe and New Edition seriously doing it on our own," he admits. "BBD Lady Antebellum, we're working on it. It's going to happen ... absolutely, it's going to happen."
During Lady A and BBD's mashup on Monday, the country trio's Dave Haywood was shown holding a keytar while Hillary Scott began singing Bell Biv Devoe’s 1990 hit “Poison.” Bell Biv DeVoe then joined in for some rap freestyle before Scott segued into “Need You Now.”
