Taylor Swift and Drake’s sudden friendship is starting to make a little more sense now.
According to reports, the singer is looking to explore a more urban sound with her next album and is using Drake to help make that happen.

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.”
