Ice Spice has been in the spotlight for less than a year now, but already she's been a part of some seriously impressive collaborations. She and fellow New Yorker Lil Tjay showed out on "Gangsta Boo" from her debut EP (even if their music video shoot was derailed by an unexpected arrest) and English songstress Pinkpantheress brought her onto "Boy's a liar Pt. 2," which quickly became a success on TikTok and other platforms. More recently, the 23-year-old crossed her dream feature off of her bucket list thanks to Nicki Minaj's appearance on the "Princess Diana (Remix)." Seeing as it's hard to top the Queen of Rap, the Spice Cabinet has been wondering who she'll work with next.

If the latest gossip from EZMNY Records President Shawn Barron is true, then the answer may surprise you. During a recent appearance on the One More Time Podcast, the industry executive revealed that the bodacious redhead is apparently working on a song with country-turned-pop star, Taylor Swift. Rumour has it that Spice could make an appearance on the blonde singer's next release, which would follow her highly successful surprise Midnights album from late 2022. Of course, nothing has been confirmed just yet, though the two stars did share a sweet moment on stage at the iHeartRadioAwards in March.

Are Taylor Swift and Ice Spice Working Together?

At the time, Spice and her foreign collaborator presented the "Fifteen" hitmaker with the Song of the Year award for "Anti-Hero." As XXL notes, Isis Gaston also spoke with Nylon about her favourite breakup song, which is Swift's 2012 classic, "We Are Never Getting Back Together." Taylor doesn't have a ton of joint songs in her discography, and she typically works with other pop artists, so it'll certainly be interesting to hear how she and the "Bikini Bottom" hitmaker bring their wildly different sounds together on one single.

Elsewhere in the news, the east coast rap diva dropped a hint over the weekend that we may see her at this evening's Met Gala. Rihanna has also confirmed that she'll be attending, setting up a seriously stacked guest list ahead of the big red carpet reveal. Tap into Barron's full interview on the One More Time podcast below, and let us know if you'd stream a Taylor Swift x Ice Spice joint track in the comments.
