What a good sport!

If you've heard Adele's new single Hello — and let's be honest, who hasn't — then you've probably noticed that the very first word sounds awfully similar to Lionel Richie's iconic song of the same name.

Well, you're not alone, because the OG Hello singer is well aware everyone's favorite pop star took some inspiration from the song.

In fact, he even joked about lending the titular word to the British songstress in a recent interview, saying:

"I was so amazed. Everyone said, 'Lionel, Adele is doing your song Hello,' and I said, 'No she's not,' and all of a sudden I heard Hello.

But it's Adele. Even though she didn't cover the song, [just] the word Hello, automatically everyone called me on the phone and said 'she used Hello,' and I said, 'Well, I kind of own Hello.'

But not to the point where it's any kind of problem. I'll loan Hello to Adele."

Hello… he's Nicole Richie's dad, of course he has a good sense of humor! LOLz!!!

Do U think Adele was inspired by Lionel's hit song, or was it just a crazy coincidence??
