Ne-Yo Wants to Make Country Music With Lady GagaPublished by Dior Noir on Friday, October 8, 2010 at 3:00 pm.
Lady Gaga goes hard on her “out of the box” performances and clothes, but will she agree to do a country music song with Ne-Yo? That’s what he hopes.
“I’ve reached out to GaGa and our people are talking. It would be amazing if we could do a country and western record, something totally unexpected,” Ne-Yo told The Daily Star. “I love what she and Beyonce did on ‘Telephone’ and ‘Video Phone’ as they were both very distinct styles.”
While he waits for the word on the Gaga duet, Ne-Yo has been busy working on Beyonce’s new album: “I’ve been in the studio with Beyonce recently working on her third album and I’m really excited about it. It’s a little bit classic Beyonce and a little bit unexpected direction,” he said.
Uh, I hope he’s not trying to turn Beyonce into a country singer too!
Hip hop and R&B have had mash-up moments with country in the past : T-Pain and Taylor Swift joined forces at the CMT Awards to perform the song “Thug Story” and Nelly and Tim McGraw recorded that song “Over My Head” back in 2004. Come to think of it, I hated both of those songs, but maybe Gaga and Ne-Yo could pull it off.
Do you think a country track with Lady Gaga is a good idea or is Ne-Yo on one?
