Taylor Swift calls on Drake for hip-hop vibe
Los Angeles, Nov 14 (IANS) Singer Taylor Swift, known for country pop hits, has reportedly approached rapper and rumoured beau Drake to help give her music a hip-hop vibe.
According to The Sun newspaper, Swift has approached Drake, 30, to help her give her music a more urban and R&B vibe, reports dailymail.co.uk.
“Taylor is always looking at ways to grow as an artist and really wants to try something different and unexpected for the next album,” said a source.
Swift appeared to transition from traditional country to pop with her last album “1989”, released in October 2014, with many of the songs featuring synthesizers and heavy bass lines as opposed to acoustic guitar sounds.
It has now been reported that Swift wants to progress into hip-hop style.
“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,” the source added.
The musical revelation follows Swift’s collaboration with fellow rapper Kendrick Lamar, who featured in her most recent single “Bad blood”.
