After their hilarious Twitter back-and-forth last week, “Queen of Twitter” Dionne Warwick and Chance the Rapper have announced that they’ve teamed with The Weeknd for the charity single “Nothing’s Impossible.”
Warwick announced the news on Tuesday (Dec. 15) in a short video in which she said she was so excited to announce the news that she could hardly contain herself.
“The Weeknd has agreed to join Chance the Rapper and I on our song, ‘Nothing’s Impossible,'” said Warwick in the brief clip, which she noted that she edited herself.
The video’s caption alluded to her sudden social media fame — which even elicited a Saturday Night Live spoof last weekend — with the quip, “I’m still on a mission to end foolishness by 2021. It looks like @theweeknd and @chancetherapper are joining me. Who’s next?”
TMZ reported that the song was written and produced by Warwick’s son, Dionne Damon Elliott, and that it will benefit the non-profit charity organization Hunger Not Impossible.
The collab with Chance came after Warwick teased Chance earlier this month about his name in the tweet, “If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this.” She’s done the same type of gentle ribbing of The Weeknd, tweeting, “The Weeknd is next. Why? It’s not even spelled correctly?”
Legendary songwriter Diane Warren was elated by the news, responding, “Ok when am I doing a song with U @dionnewarwick?”
