The legendary recording artist worked with Grande in 2019 on “Nobody”, a track from the soundtrack to last year’s Charlie’s Angels reboot.
Speaking to comedian Luenell on the YouTube channel VladTV, Khan said that she had no interest in working with Grande again.
“F**k her!” Khan exclaimed. “No, she’s all right, she’s good on her own. She don’t need… I don’t want to sing with another woman. I ain’t got nothing to say with a woman. You say it by yourself."
She continued: “I’m not gonna do a song with no heifer!”
Khan elaborated on her thinking when discussing the Grammy-winning singer Lalah Hathaway. “That’s a bad singing bitch!” Khan said. “Now what do I want to do with her? She’s got her own world, like I got my own planet. So uh-uh. And we can just effect each other, planetary-like. It’s beautiful enough for me.”
Khan previously poured cold water on her duet with Grande, telling a red carpet interviewer in 2019 that “Nobody” wasn’t “gonna change the world, okay?”
“It’s a cute song,” she said at the time. “It’s a song, you know, about Charlie’s Angels. It’s, you know, it’s… It’s not gonna change the world, okay? It’s a good song in the movie.”
Khan, best known for tracks including “Ain’t Nobody” and “I Feel for You”, last year released her first album of new material in more than a decade.
