If we learned anything from 2016 so far, it's to expect the unexpected.

Next year, America will have a new president and vastly different White House — and apparently, Taylor Swift is already taking advantage of the turning tables.

According to The Sun, the Blank Space songstress' next album will be "a real mix of edgier hip-hop and R&B sounds."

That's right. Taylor Swift, former country crooner turned pop superstar, is reportedly planning on rebranding herself musically once again — this time around, dipping her toes into the world of hip hop!

An inside source said this genre pivot had much to do with her recent studio sessions with Drake, whom Tay allegedly "enlisted" to give her songs "an urban sound."

The source continued to say that Taylor's appropriation new sound came from the success of Kendrick Lamar's remix of Bad Blood, noting:

"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."

Well, we guess this means Taylor and Drake really are just keeping it professional!

The insider added of their friendship:

"They share a real connection over their love of music and studio time and get on very well. Taylor met his parents at a recent birthday party and invited him to drop in any time he's in her neck of the woods to meet her folks. In turn he's told her to party with him at New Year in Las Vegas."

Only time will tell what happens between the duo, but now we're just worried for Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston – because their inevitable breakup tracks may have just gotten a whole lot nastier!!

Do YOU think Taylor is going hip hop for her next album?
