Source: Taylor wants to try something different and unexpected
Taylor Swift is reportedly collaborating with Drake as she wants to explore a new hip-hop sound for her upcoming album.
The artist had previously worked with Kendrick Lamar and is said to be very pleased with the results, prompting her to try something unique once more.
An insider shared with The Sun On Sunday: “Taylor is always looking at ways to grow as an artist and really wants to try something different and unexpected for the next album.
She’s not afraid of experimenting so is working with a lot of different faces to see if she suits a new sound.
The remix of her song ‘Bad Blood‘ had a less pop vibe – especially once Kendrick Lamar featured on it – and was a big hit, so she thinks her fans will like her going in this direction.
Drake has been her friend for a while and it seemed a no-brainer that she would spend time in the studio with him.”
The rap icon even assisted in the production of several songs that could make it into the final product, as Taylor is adamant on taking the project in a new direction.
The source previously explained: “As well as writing with Taylor, he’s producing a few tracks and even lent his vocals to one song. It’s a real mix of edgier hip-hop and R&B sounds.”
It has recently been rumored that Drake and Taylor have started dating, but an insider insists they are merely good friends working together.
“They share a real connection over their love of music and studio time and get on very well.
Taylor met his parents at a recent birthday party and invited him to drop in any time he’s in her neck of the woods to meet her folks. In turn he’s told her to party with him at New Year in Las Vegas.”
