Rappers collaborating with pop stars is not exactly a new trend. Eminem has been doing it for years, working with Pink and Skylar Grey for radio anthems. Migos, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg and Juicy J have all worked with Katy Perry, to varying degrees of critical success.
Kendrick Lamar has worked with Taylor Swift, Young Thug worked with Camila Cabello, Gucci Mane worked with Fifth Harmony…The list goes on. Still, there’s something delightfully strange about this standout collaboration from Taylor Swift’s brand new Reputation album, which finds Future linking up with Ms. Swift and pop heavyweight Ed Sheeran for a surefire single “End Game.”
