Good news! Chance The Rapper and Dionne Warwick are making plans to meet in the studio to create a new track. The atypical link up between the two Grammy-winning artists is a result of Warwick inquiring about the upbeat rapper's stage name on Twitter. In December 2020, the music industry legend tweeted, "Hi, @chancetherapper. If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this." She later humorously proclaimed herself "Dionne the Singer" before mentioning that Chance's collab on Justin Bieber's "Holy" is one of her favorites.
Chance responded to Warwick's tweet, happily affirming his love for the singer. He wrote, "I will be whatever you wanna call me Ms Warwick. God bless you." Warwick later extended an offer to collaborate with the Coloring Book crooner, writing, "of course I know you. You're THE rapper. Let's rap together. I'll message you."
Just a month after the wholesome Twitter exchange, Chance and Warwick are joining forces for a track titled "Nothing's Impossible," per NME. Read on to find out what to expect from the unlikely collaboration.

Dionne Warwick and Chance The Rapper are working together for the greater good. Their collaboration, "Nothing's Impossible," is a charity duet to raise money for the two artists' chosen charities. Warwick announced an update on the collab on Twitter in January 2021. "Chance and I will be getting in the studio very, very soon," the "Say A Little Prayer" singer said. "It's gonna be a pleasure working with him and his organization, called SocialWorks, as he's working with mine, Hunger: Not Impossible."
She continued, "We're going to try to do some wonderful things for people that are desperately in need... so keep your eyes and ears open, because we're getting in that studio soon and we're going to give you something that you cannot resist." Chance shared the video and added, "THIS IS GOING TO BE SO GOOD FOR SO MANY!! THANK YOU DIONNE THE SINGER!! WE GON MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH THIS ONE!!"
Warwick previously mentioned that The Weeknd would be joining the pair for the collaboration, per NME. However, it has yet to be confirmed if the "Save Your Tears" singer will be featured on the charity track as of this report. Regardless, we cannot wait to hear the beautiful music these greats are bound to create!
