Fans Think the Post Hints at Drake and Taylor Swift’s New Collab
As soon as the post was dropped, fans took to various social media platforms to express their thoughts about the picture.
While many gazed at the photo in awe, some speculated that it might be a hint at the duo's next collab.
"Here my theory, I think the next project of taylor is gonna be a collab project. We got lana del rey and drake, now we just have to wait who will be next artist gonna be," one fan wrote on Twitter.
Another added, "can wait to hear a song about drake. she def have a rap verse."
"Coming to top the charts," a similar tweet read.
Despite all the fans' excitement, neither Drake nor Swift has addressed if a collaboration could be on the way. But we cannot also deny the possibility of it happening in the near future.
The Collab Rumors Started Long Back
It is not the first time the two musical superstars have been rumored to have a collab. This has been going on for a long time.
Once, in 2019, Swift appeared on Entertainment Weekly's latest cover, revealing details about her new album and how various musicians and actors have continuously inspired her music.
In the cover photo, Swift wore a denim jacket clad in pins with references to artists, including Selena Gomez and Drake. A photo of the rapper from his 'Hotline Bling' music video sat on the jacket alongside a pin that read "Track 5."
And that made fans think that Drake and Swift were collaborating for her next album or a new song. But that was definitely not true.
Drake and Taylor Swift’s Recent Works
In recent years, both Drake and Swift have entertained fans with their music, which has helped them reach newer heights in their respective careers.
For instance, the rapper is almost unstoppable in the hip-hop game. As per Billboard, during one stretch last year, Drake had one of the most dominant weeks in the 63-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.
That was when he became the first artist ever to claim as many as nine of the top 10 positions in a single frame.
Among his haul, he snagged the entire top five, a feat previously achieved only by The Beatles for a week in 1964.
As for Swift, she was declared Billboard’s Greatest Pop Star of 2021.
“No other popular artist harnessed that type of fan energy with as much passion and imagination in 2021 as Swift, across albums and platforms, on projects that challenged the modern music industry while still succeeding wildly within it,” Billboard explained at the time.
