Dionne Warwick and her Twitter account have been getting a lot of attention lately. Earlier this month, Dionne got attention for questioning Chance The Rapper, The Weeknd, and anyone else with “the” in their names.
Hi, @chancetherapper. If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this.— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) December 5, 2020
The Weeknd is next. Why? It’s not even spelled correctly? @theweeknd— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) December 5, 2020
If you have “The” in your name i’m coming for you. I need answers today.— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) December 5, 2020
Wendy Williams and Dionne then got into a little tiff last week. As we pointed out, Wendy talked about Dionne’s new social media fame, shaded her, and Dionne responded.
Also, Saturday Night Live recently spoofed her with a The Dionne Warwick Talk Show sketch.
Now, it appears as if all this newfound social media fame has landed Dionne Warwick on a song with Chance The Rapper and The Weeknd.
On a recent appearance of the Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Chance tells the story about Dionne tweeting him and says it has led to them possibly collaborating.
He said, “We’re working, apparently, on a song. It’s a huge, immense honor. She shouted me out on Twitter, and I freaked out for a while, and I hit her back, and then she started contacting me in real life. It’s all been a blur. It feels like my first taste of real fame.”
Dionne has also been tweeting about music while mentioning both Chance and The Weeknd, so they might possibly all be working on something together. In one video, she said the song would be called “Nothing’s Impossible.”
I now have a wish list of recording artists from the younger generation that I would be interested in working with. It isn’t a long list, but it is a list.— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) December 15, 2020
