It looks like veteran singer and actor Dionne Warwick might be hinting to her fans about a possible collab with Chance The Rapper and The Weekend in her not so subtle tweets. On December 6, the 79-year-old singer called out the ‘Acid Rap’ rapper and ‘Starboy’ singer one after the other with hilarious tweets and found herself trending again. “Hi, @chancetherapper. If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this.” 



 

"I am now Dionne the Singer," Warwick announced in her next tweet. She also mentioned that, “'Holy' by Justin the Bieber @justinbieber and @chancetherapper is one of my favorite songs right now.”



 

 



 


Chance The Rapper, apparently awestruck by the unexpected mention, took a moment to respond. "Sorry I’m still freaking out that u know who I am," he wrote back. "This is amazing!"



 

He further wrote, “I will be whatever you wanna call me Ms Warwick. God bless you,” with two blue heart emojis. The ‘Don’t Make Me Over’ singer wasn’t quite done with Twitter yet as she quickly responded to the rapper saying, “Of course I know you. You’re THE rapper. Let’s rap together. I’ll message you.” 



 

 



 

After Chance, Warwick called The Weekend out saying, “The Weeknd is next. Why? It’s not even spelled correctly?"



 

"If you have “The” in your name i’m coming for you," Warwick warned. "I need answers today."



 

Fans of the artistes loved the fun exchange on Twitter as one wrote, “When Miss Warwick asks you a question, Chancelor, you answer it in a timely and respectful fashion.” Another said, “This is the sort of content I am here for. It feels kind of wholesome, if I’m being honest.” A user noted, “To everyone telling Chance the Rapper to answer the question...gosh! HIS people called HER people and they're conversing now and a collab is forthcoming in 2021!”



 

 



 

 



 

Impressed by Chance The Rapper’s response to the living legend, a user wrote, “I’m a Dionne Warwick fan and I never heard of you but your reply was so genuine and just great in every way.” In Chance’s rapping style a user wrote a little rap telling Warwick how his name came to be,

“Chance the rapper
charity kinda dapper
Dionne wants to know
how is name became to flow
One glance
there's your chance
to know the romance
a lyrical dance
enchanted trance
his name's foundational stance.

---Thank you for your time.
God Bless,
John German”

Another hilarious comment read, “I feel like it's not to distinguish Chance from other rappers, but to distinguish the Rapper from other Chances — can't have people be looking for Chance the Rapper and accidentally book Chance the Plumber or worse, Chance the Wrapper”



 

 



 

 



 

A user predicted how Chance might be feeling at that moment and wrote, “Freaking out is the only humanly possible response to being mentioned in a tweet by Dionne Warwick.” Another fan congratulated the rapper saying, “Well done. You got Dionne Warwick to be unable to stop thinking about you.  Dionne Warwick the Singer.”
