Taylor Swift working with Drake on her new "hip-hop and R&B" record?

Taylor Swift's reportedly in the studio with Drake - he's writing, producing, and singing with the "Shake It Off" star.

Apparently the Toronto rapper is helping out on Swift's 1989 follow up - which is described as "a real mix of edgier hip-hop and R&B sounds.”

The Sun quote an unnamed source who says: “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 source continues. "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's not just The Sun who think Drake and Swift are working together - Page Six also have their own source.

Swift's most recent record, 1989, was released over two years ago.
