Chaka Khan collaborated with Ariana Grande for the track “Nobody” last year but says she won’t be working with the star again.

The 67-year-old star collaborated with Ariana, 27, last year for the track “Nobody” on the “Charlie’s Angels” reboot soundtrack but Chaka won’t be the repeating the experience in the future.

She told VladTV: “F**k that. She’s all right, she’s good on her own. Plus, I don’t want to sing with another woman. I ain’t got nothing to say with a woman.

“And we ain’t gonna talk about no man, we ain’t gonna talk about none of that stuff. It’s not happening. I’m not gonna do no song with no heifer.”

Chaka shared her admiration for Anderson Paak, saying: “He’s got a future,” and while she admires Lalah Hathaway, she has no plans to work with the star.

She explained: “That’s a bad singing b****. Now what I want to do with her? She got her own world, like I got my own planet. So uh-uh. And we just affect each other, planetary-like. It’s beautiful enough for me.”

Ariana Grande plans to release a new album in October
‘Thank U, Next’ hitmaker Ariana Grande has revealed she is planning to release a new album this month.

Chaka was also asked if she would consider a Las Vegas residency but she was not enthusiastic.

She said: “That doesn’t move me. 90 days tops, that’s all I would do. They’d have to stick their hands deep in their pockets that it might break their back. I’ve never cared for Vegas, it’s just never moved me.”
