Country stars Lady Antebellum joined forces with 90's hip-hop group Bell Biv DeVoe to create an unlikely supergroup on Monday night. The acts formed "Lady AnteBell Biv DeVoe" as part of Jimmy Kimmel's "Mash Up Mondays," in which two groups with similar names (but almost always dissimilar sounds) performed together. If you missed the performance, you can watch it now by using the media player included with this article.
The combined act impressed the crowd on the 'Jimmy Kimmel Live" outdoor stage with a combination of Lady Antebellum's hit "Need You Now" and Bell Biv DeVoe's fan favorite "Poison." Just think of it like an episode of "CMT Crossroads" only without the talking parts and with some 90's-style denim jackets.
If you're wondering what they're doing when they're not putting together random collaborations, Bell Biv DeVoe released their first album in 16 years on Jan. 27. Three Stripes contained the single "Run" and reached the second spot on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart. It also cracked the Top 20 on the overall Billboard 200 albums chart.
Lady Antebellum are preparing for their You Look Good World Tour that begins on May 26. The tour is in support of their upcoming seventh record called Heart Break, which will then drop during the tour on June 9. A lyric video for the single, also called "You Look Good", went up on YouTube a month ago and already has more than 1.4 million viewers. But how will their touring compare to getting to bust out hip-hop beats with Bell Biv DeVoe?
Other acts slated for "Mash Up Mondays" include OK Go-Go's (OK Go and The Go-Go's) on March 13, followed by Ice-T.I. (Ice-T and T.I.) on March 20. The segment started last year with performances by the likes of Imagine REO SpeeDragons (Imagine Dragons and REO Speedwagon), Of Monsters and Men at Work (Of Monsters and Men with Men at Work), and Joss Stone Temple Pilots (Joss Stone and Stone Temple Pilots).
