A source told The Sun: “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 continued.

“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.”

The pair have been rumoured to be getting close in recent weeks, but their relationship is most likely strictly professional.

“They share a real connection over their love of music and studio time and get on very well,” the source added.

“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.”
