Earlier this month, Kanye West shocked everyone when he told Ryan Seacrest that Taylor Swift was eager to collaborate with him. The two further cemented their newfound respect for each another and demonstrated that they'd buried the hatched when they had dinner together in New York City. Today brings another surprising new rumor about the newly united Swift and West: They may have already laid down that aforementioned song together. Music news site Noise11 is reporting that Swift and West recorded a new version of her song "Bad Blood" shortly after the Grammy awards. Former Hippos singer Ariel Rechtshaid reportedly produced the new single. The original, which appears on 1989, is about Swift's relationship with another female singer. She divulged this in an interview with Rolling Stone, and while Swift didn't reveal the singer's name, there's been a lot of speculation that the song is about Katy Perry. Neither Swift nor Weezy (portmanteau: Sweezy) has confirmed that they have, in fact, recorded a cover of "Bad Blood." Still, it would be an extremely logical song for them to select as their first duet, with "Shake It Off" being a close second. (Noise11)
