The I’m Every Woman singer, Chaka Khan, recently opened up about her experience of collaborating with Ariana Grande…
And it turns out she didn’t have the best experience.
During an interview earlier this week, the sixty-seven-year-old pop icon had some harsh words for the young singer.
The pair collaborated on a song for Charlie’s Angels last year…
But Khan expressed her distaste for the whole collab and even insisted that she will never work with Ariana again.
She’s predominantly known as a singer, but she’s also an actress, songwriter, and, let’s face it, an Instagram influencer of the highest degree.
Her roles in stage productions, along with a handful of small TV appearances, led her to land her breakthrough role as Cat Valentine in the Nickelodeon series Victorious from 2010 to 2013.
She also starred in the spin-off series Sam and Cat.
Grande starred alongside Jennette McCurdy in the comedy, which chronicled the antics of roommates, Sam and Cat, who start a baby-sitting service to earn some extra cash.
The show ran for one season, first airing in 2013.
She is known for having an amazing vocal range, comparable to Mariah Carey, and her music tends to be super catchy, R&B inspired pop.
Hits such as “Break Free,” “No Tears Left To Cry,” and “Side to Side,” has received significant critical acclaim.
The songstress won the VMA for best new artist way back in 2013 and it has been a winning streak since, with the likes of 2 Billboard awards, 3 VMA’s, and a Grammy under her belt, to name a few.
Her turbulent love life then gave us this amazing bop.
What’s better than Thank U, Next? The Thank U, Next video, of course. Grande took things to a whole new level with this catchy tune.
The success of the song, alongside her fourth studio album Sweetener, led her to being named Woman of the Year by Billboard.
Grande followed up Thank U, Next with another huge hit.
7 Rings, released in January, broke a ton of streaming records after its release – many of them previously set by Grande herself.
Alongside a bunch of criticism for cultural appropriation, Grande potentially faced legal issues, as 7 Rings sounds not dissimilar to songs by a whole bunch of artists, including Soulja Boy.
Well, to most people she is, anyway.
Chaka Khan has recently opened up about her 2019 collab with Ariana for the Charlie’s Angels track, “Nobody”…
And she had some harsh words for the young singer.
With some slamming her as “rude” and “unnecessary.”
During her interview with VLADtv, she was asked if she’d collaborate with Ariana again, in which she replied bluntly with:
“She’s good on her own. She doesn’t need – plus, I don’t wanna sing with another woman. I ain’t got nothing to say, okay, with a woman.”
You literally collaborated with her last year, Chaka.
What on earth was she thinking?
