The 1975’s Matty Healy wants to work with Ariana Grande

"She has such an amazing voice."

The 1975‘s Matty Healy has revealed how he’d up for collaborating with Ariana Grande.

The Manchester band are known to be fans of Grande, and last month received the thumbs-up from the singer after covering ‘Thank U, Next’ in the BBC Live Lounge.

Speaking to the Times of India, Healy said of the song: “”It’s just the best song out at this time. It is also the biggest song of the moment.”


When asked if a potential collaboration was on the cards, Healy replied: “Yeah, I would love to. She has such an amazing voice.”

Describing The 1975’s cover of ‘Thank U, Next’, NME previously wrote: “Thank U, Next’ was the perfect choice for The 1975. A pop banger that deals in both triumph and tragedy, it’s already become Ariana Grande’s quintessential number – a track that’s seen her rise from the ashes of a torrid couple of years, stronger than ever.”

Yesterday, Grande was forced to add more dates to her ‘Sweetener’ world tour, after huge demand meant they sold out within minutes.

The singer will kick off a string of shows in London next August before returning a month later for subsequent dates in Birmingham, Glasgow, Sheffield and Dublin. You can buy all remaining tickets here.


Earlier this month, The 1975 scooped the award for NME’s Album of The Year for ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.’ This was followed by Grande’s triumph in NME’s Songs of The Year – topping the list with ‘No Tears Left To Cry.’
