Taylor Swift's move from country to pop was a rousing success.
Is her next genre shift going to be from pop to R&B/Hip Hop?
A source tells UK tabloid The Sun that Swift's new relationship with Drake is a business one, and that Drizzy is helping Taylor develop a new more urban sound.
“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."According to the source, Drake has a produced a few songs for Swift, and has lent vocals for at least one. Their sound is described as a "mix of edgier Hip Hop and R&B sounds."
There's little question that Drake and Swift are working on something.
How would you feel about Swift going "urban" with Drake as her guide?
