Despite Their Musical Differences Lorde Explains Why She and Taylor Swift Could Collaborate
Since Taylor Swift and Lorde are now BFFs, it’s only natural to hope that at some point, they may decide to collaborate musically. While their two musical styles don’t seem to have much in common, Lorde says that Taylor’s willingness to push the envelope artistically would allow them mesh those styles.
Asked by London’s Capital FM what she thinks of the idea of collaborating with Taylor, since they’re so different musically, Lorde replied, “Yeah, we are, but I think the cool thing about Taylor is she is pretty willing to go a lot of places with music.”
Referring to Taylor’s most recent album RED, which featured her exploring a more pop sound, Lorde added, “I think that last record in particular, everyone was like, ‘Whoah! A lot of ground has been covered.’ And I think with an artist like her, the sky’s kinda the limit, y’know?”
Lorde and Taylor first became close last year, when they were spotted having lunch in New York City, then dinner in Australia. Lorde also attended Taylor’s 24th birthday party in Australia, and the two spent time together at the Grammy Awards as well.
