    Over the weekend, British tabloid The Sun reported, "We understand Taylor (Swift) 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."

    An unnamed source was quoted as saying: "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."

    The statements have immediately created a stir, with outlets such as Stereogum releasing an article entitled, "Please, God, Do Not Let Taylor Swift Record A Hip-Hop/R&B Album", which states, "Let's be plain here: This is a f***ing horrible idea. Like, it's the worst idea. Taylor Swift is a pop songwriter with impeccable instincts, and she has never recorded a less-than-great album. But her songwriting gifts are in no way compatible with any form of rap or R&B that has ever existed. And if she's just bringing in Drake to make fake dancehall à la "One Dance," that's nearly as f***ing bad. The world is scary enough these days. A Taylor Swift rap album is emphatically not what we need."
