Lindsay Lohan & Duran Duran’s New Song Is Definitely Amongst The Most Unexpected Musical Collaborations Ever
Lindsay Lohan is full of surprises lately. Lohan recreated a photo from The Parent Trap , much to fans' delight, and now she teamed up with a musical legend! In an interview with PEOPLE, Simon Le Bon discussed, "Dancephobia," Duran Duran's collaboration with Lindsay Lohan. The track is featured on the band's newest album, Paper Gods.
Le Bon explained:
"I've known Lindsay for years and years and years. I met her in New York when we were both appearing on the Regis and Kelly show, believe it or not, so we stayed in contacted in a relaxed way. She texted me, and I said, 'Well, I'll try and find a slot for you.' And then 'Dancephobia' came up. We really needed something special for that little space in that song, and Lindsay delivered 100 percent. What's it brought to the album? It has brought a little controversy. She polarizes people, Lindsay – doesn't she? She's very special. I'm really proud that we've got her on it."
It's exciting to see Lohan working on music again, even if the collaboration is definitely surprising. However, this isn't the first time a musical partnership caught fans off-guard. Here are seven more collaborations we never saw coming.
