Investigating the alleged online “feud” between Charli XCX and Rina Sawayama surrounding 1975 singer Matty Healy. Amid the drama, Charli appeared to unfollow Rina on Instagram.
Netizens on social media are caught up in the online drama between Charli XCX and Rina Sawayama today (30th August, 2023). The music artists have a rich history, collaborating on the 2022 single “Beg For You,” which appeared on Charli XCX’s album Crash. It seemed like the two are still on friendly terms, but their recent “feud” might suggest otherwise.
Charli XCX and Rina Sawayama’s drama is explored in the wake of the Matty Healy row
The background to the latest alleged row stems from Rina Sawayama’s public calls to The 1975 lead singer Matty Healy. Rina called Healy this summer after Healy faced backlash over his comments on the podcast. Matty has been criticized for allegedly making racist comments on The Adam Friedland Show. To make matters worse, the two share a label, Dirty Hit, of which Healy is a former CEO.
Sawayama reportedly confronted Healy about his comments, but Healy gave her an unsatisfactory response. She then made the issue public. She told the Glastonbury crowd during her performance earlier this year: “I wrote this next song because I was tired of the microaggressions. Tonight this song goes to a white man watching [pornography show] Ghetto chokes and taunts Asians in podcast He also owns my masters. I’ve had enough…”
Now, the dispute has apparently created tension between Charli XCX and Rina Sawayama, as Charli has a romantic relationship with Healy’s band member, drummer George Daniel.

With that in mind, people now believe Charli sided with Matty Healy – who was later removed from his position as label director at Dirty Hit – in the dispute.
Evidence of this seems to come from the fact that Charli XCX recently unfollowed Rina Sawayama on Instagram. In response, Rina released her This Hell visualizer, prompting Charli to comment, “Apparently I’m going to hell…”
Charli then tweeted “chaotic era,” which fans say is related to her falling out with Rina.
As a result, fans have shared their thoughts on Charlie XCX and Rina Sawayama’s drama.
Fans of both will hope the relationship isn’t irreparable.
