“HMU if you wanna”: Matty Healy uses Twitter to ask for a collaboration with Harry Styles

But it looks like Styles might have blocked him...

Matty Healy has publicly announced that he would like to produce Harry Styles‘ next solo album, tweeting “hmu [hit me up] if you wanna” at the pop star.

Ahead of their UK arena tour later this month, The 1975 frontman took to Twitter earlier today (January 3) to hustle for work with the former One Directioner.

The tweet read: “Hey @Harry_Styles me and George [Daniel, The 1975 drummer] really wanna produce your next album hmu if you wanna it’s cool if not tho I know you’re like super busy etc love!!!!!”

A few minutes earlier, Healy appeared to reveal that Styles had blocked him on the social media site. He wrote: “I need @Harry_Styles new number I’m defo blocked.”

Fans of both artists didn’t disappoint with their excited replies.

Healy has had a complicated relationship with One Direction. In 2016, Healy revealed he was brought in to write a song for 1D’s ‘Four’ album, claiming that Styles and his bandmates “didn’t seem to be actually that interested” in penning material during their recording session.

However, Healy also previously snogged a cardboard cutout of Harry Styles in the ‘Love Me‘ video.

Styles is not the first high-profile artist that Healy has approached on social media. Last month, the frontman revealed his desire to collaborate with Ariana Grande.

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

More recently, Healy also used social media to share some feedback from the Jeff Goldblum. The Jurassic Park actor, who turned his hand to jazz with debut album ‘The Capitol Studios Sessions’ last year, is apparently a fan of the group’s “wonderful” comeback single ‘Give Yourself A Try’.
