Swift turns to Drake for new hip hop sound

TAYLOR Swift has turned to Drake as she looks to master a new hip-hop sound.

The chart-topping singer has reportedly turned to the rap star as she is keen to explore a new sound on her upcoming album, having previously enjoyed success working with Kendrick Lamar.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "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 star has even helped produce a few songs that could appear on Taylor's new album, as she seeks to take her music in a different direction.

The source 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."

In recent weeks, there have been rumours that Taylor and Drake have started dating. However, a source close to the situation has insisted that is not the case, saying they are simply good friends.

The source said: "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."
