(Source) – We understand Taylor is exploring the new urban sound in the studio at the moment and has roped in a man who knows a thing or two about that world — new pal DRAKE. A source said: “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. “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.”
Just when I thought I was totally out on Taylor Swift… she pulls me back in!
I’m sure everyone’s freaking out about this and they’ve got their hand hovering over the cultural appropriation button, but have you listened to Thug Story yet? Not sure what’s offensive about a heater like that. Just a little girl rapping about how she doesn’t own a gun and has never been in a club but she’s still a thug. Just a chick who’s a singer turned rapper and is spitting fire bars all over the place. Is it possible to hate that? I argue it isn’t.
PS – In all seriousness this would be an abomination. I’ve said for a while now that I can’t stand Taylor Swift the person but still fuck with her music, yet I don’t think I can ride along on this one. Going from country to pop was fine, going from pop to “edgy” hip hop would be as horrible as it gets. I think, at least. I can’t imagine this little blonde girl with no rhythm or cool factor at all trying to rap about how she’s heartbroken because her fake relationships with Loki and Calvin Harris broke her heart.
