Taylor Swift Working With J-Lo? Take A Look Back At The Singer's Best Collaborations

With the news that Taylor Swift and J-Lo has teamed up for a potential musical collaboration we’re taking a look back at T-Swift’s best musical duets.

1) Hayley Williams

You may have been surprised to learn that Taylor Swift was such a big fan of Paramore. But is it a real big surprise that she finds their angsty emo break-up pop so damn irresistible?  She was joined by Paramore singer Hayley Williams for a punchy version of their song That’s What You Get which is about allowing yourself to fall in love (obvs).

2) Carly Simon

Years and years before we played a game of ‘guess who?’ around We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together Carly Simon’s You’re So Vain prompted a similar reaction (was it about Warren Beatty, Mick Jagger or Cat Stevens?). Watch above as the two singer-songwriters teamed up for a run through of that legendary track. Ex-lover musical body count: about 47.

3) Ellie Goulding

The jogging-loving chanteuse teamed up with Taylor for a version of her single Anything Could Happen at the Staples Centre in LA – cue lots of jumping up and down for the ‘oooh, oooh, oooh’ bit…

4) The Civil Wars

The warring, sad-eyed country duo The Civil Wars joined up with Taylor for this track on The Hunger Games soundtrack. Nothing says: ‘Katniss in post-apocalyptic penury’ than Safe and Sound.

5) B.O.B

Once you get over the shock at this track sounding a bit like someone furiously flipping the radio dial between a country station and an urban one, this collaboration with B.O.B is pretty sweet, especially if you’ve thought the one thing a Taylor Swift song needs is “a really really big drop.”
