Are Taylor Swift and Drake collaborating on a 'Game of Thrones' song? Fans go bonkers as speculation grows
Taylor Swift has sparked speculation among fans that she would be collaborating with rapper Drake on a song about 'Game of Thrones.' This comes soon after a cover on Entertainment Weekly (EW) showed her wearing a denim jacket covered with badges that appear to look like clues to her upcoming album.
It appeared that one of the badges on her jacket was a photo of Drake from his video 'Hotline Bling' and right next to it was another button that read 'Track 5.' Talking to EW, the 'Love Story' singer spoke about how much she enjoys Drake's music and even quotes a few of his lyrics. The article also mentioned the new album features "a mix of old and new collaborators."
According to fans, it isn't just Drake who would be a part of the album; other pins of Selena Gomez and the Dixie Chicks mean that the pop singer could likely cut a track or two with them. Among other pins on her jacket are 'Game of Thrones' characters Daenerys Targaryen and Dracarys, Sansa Stark and Arya Stark.
The singer started binge-watching the hit series in 2016. Swift also revealed to EW that she was a huge 'Game of Thrones' fan and her album 'Reputation' was influenced by her love for the show. "So much of my imagination was spent on Game of Thrones," she said.
Apparently, the track, 'Look What You Made Me Do' had a lot to do with Arya Stark's kill list. Arya began her list right at the start of the series listing down people whom she would exact her revenge upon for ruining her family among other things.
"These songs were half based on what I was going through, but seeing them through a Game of Thrones filter," Swift revealed. The song 'King of My Heart' was created after she was influenced by Daenerys and Khal Drogo. "It's even got this post-hook of drums — I wanted them to sound like Dothraki drums," Swift said.
According to EW, Swift wrote lines based on season 7 plots for 'Reputation'. "'I Did Something Bad' I wrote after Arya and Sansa conspire to kill Littlefinger," she said. Will Swift also write a song titled 'Not Today'? Only time will tell.
