Two for One Special

Album: Rachele Lynae (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This comedic cheating revenge song is a duet with Rachele Lynae and Country music singer Jamie O'Neal, who also produced Rachele's debut. It was written by the two singers along with songwriter Shaye Smith.
  • Rachele explained the inspiration behind this song in our 2014 interview: "It was inspired by a situation I had with a friend where we had both starting dating guys - this was a while back - and we started talking about what they were like and she would say, 'Oh, he's just like the guy I'm seeing.' And then we ended up finding out in our conversation that they had the same first and middle name. And for half a second there, we were like, 'What?!' So we thought we might be dating the same guy. And then we realized we weren't.

    But we ended up joking about it, saying, 'Oh, gosh, can you imagine what we would do if we found out we were dating the same guy?' So I came up with this song idea out of that situation called 'Two for One Special.'"
