Bunnie XO, in a recent episode of The Dumb Blonde Podcast, opened up about her longing to collaborate with her husband, Jelly Roll. The special guest on the podcast was none other than Jelly Roll himself, and during their candid conversation, Bunnie couldn’t contain her desire to sing a duet with him.
Will Jelly Roll and Bunnie XO Join Forces for a Duet?
In a playful yet affectionate tone, Bunnie XO exclaimed, “Well, you won’t do a duet with me…” The TikTok clip featuring this moment certainly caught the attention of fans.
Jelly Roll, always quick with humor, couldn’t resist teasing his wife about her request. He joked that he’d never do a duet with her because she wanted to record a “dirty Christmas song.” He playfully added, “We’re never going to win a GRAMMY doing dirty Christmas songs” referring to Bunnie’s sultry take on Mariah Carey’s holiday classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” which she released last year under the title “Bring Your Package To Me (Christmas Screw).”
But Bunnie wasn’t ready to let the subject go just yet. She insisted, “No, hold on, let’s really talk about this really quick,” before Jelly Roll good-naturedly accepted and told viewers, “Alright, let’s do it right now. I’m glad to bring y’all into our personal beef.”
