If you've ever hoped for a Blake Shelton/Lionel Richie duet, then today is your lucky day. 

In 2012, the two iconic singers came together to create musical gold, through a remake of Richie's hit song, "You Are."

"You Are" was released by singer-songwriter, Richie, in 1983 from his self-titled debut solo album. The song was written by his wife at the time, Brenda Harvey Richie. 

The romantic tune was released as a follow-up to his No. 1, "Truly." While "You Are" didn't top the charts like the one prior, it peaked in the top five on three Billboard charts, including Billboard Hot 100, Billboard R&B chart, and the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.

In 2012, Richie released the album Tuskegee, which consisted of reinterpretations of previous songs Richie had recorded over the years. The 13-track album was packed with duets between Richie and country stars, including Shania Twain, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts and more!

But of course, track #1 was the one we'd been waiting for, the "You Are" duet with Blake Shelton.  

Richie's soulful voice is the perfect match for Shelton's southern charm as the two swap the main vocals to create musical perfection! 

Check out the music video for "You Are," below. 

LYRICS BELOW 

Baby you'll find
There's only one love
Yours and mine
I've got so much love

And needing you so
My love for you
I'll never let go
I've got so much love

All I want is to hold you
Let me show how much I love you baby (show you)
I don't mind and I don't mind (loving you)
Girl I love you
There's no one above you

You are the sun
You are the rain
That makes my life this foolish game
You need to know
I love you so
And I'd do it all again and again

Tell me it's true
I can't believe you do what you do
I've got so much love
And my love you'll see
We'll stay together, just you and me
I've got so much love

Only you (know me)
Tell me how to love you baby (show me)
I don't mind and I don't mind (tell me)
Girl, I love you
Always thinking of you

You are the sun
You are the rain
That makes my life this foolish game
You need to know
I love you so
And I'd do it all again and again
I know you know the way I feel
And I need your love for always
Cause when I'm with you
I fall in love
Again and again and again, baby.

You are the sun
You are the rain
That makes my life this foolish game
You need to know
I love you so
And I'd do it all again and again
