The growing friendship between Dionne Warwick and Chance The Rapper might be one of the best things to come from the pandemic months. Back in December, Warwick — who’s quickly become a Twitter favorite — decided to ask her younger counterpart a humorous question about his moniker:
“If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this.”
This of course led to a back-and-forth between the two, much to the delight of their mutual followers. About a month later, Warwick then revealed that she would be collaborating with Chance on a song in support of both Chance’s well-known Social Works, which serves Chicago’s youth “through the arts, education and civic engagement,” and Not Impossible Labs, which looks to “change the course of humanity” through products related to technology and world hunger. Today (Nov. 26), fans get to press play on “Nothing’s Impossible,” an inspirational offering that sees the artists reminding listeners that the sky’s the limit when it comes to achieving your goals:
“Bro, tell me what’s worse, a broken arm or broken armor, the suit that made you Superman is really old pajamas, just imagine if Moana had been worried ‘bout piranhas, or if Elsa held the powers back the first time she froze Anna, let it go ‘cause if you hold on any longer you’re a goner, I don’t mean a ledge, I mean that pseudo-karma you hold onto…”
Back in 2019, Warwick released her last full-length body of work She’s Back, which saw a wealth of collaborations alongside Krayzie Bone, Musiq Soulchild, Kenny Lattimore, Kevon Edmonds, Brian McKnight, Fiji, and Jubilation Choir. That same year also saw Warwick drop the holiday album Dionne Warwick & the Voices of Christmas.
