Niall Horan recently opened up about his dream collaborations and we’ve already got our fingers crossed! In the latest episode of Billboard’s First Stream Live podcast, Horan discusses the difficulty of making “dream collaborations” happen, mentioning the fan-favorite suggestion of teaming up with Shawn Mendes and even the possibility of a Taylor Swift collab in the future.
Earlier this year, Horan reached out to Mendes in response to a fan. The pop crooner took to Twitter, saying that “he’d try,” teaming up with Mendes for a song.
“We ARE going to,” Mendes added, to which Horan confirmed, “Let’s do it then.”
Horan’s former One Direction band mate, Liam Payne also chimed in, feeling a bit excluded. “Can I play the triangle?” he asked and this subsequently, took all their fans into a frenzy!
Now speaking of Taylor Swift, Horan’s showed his support from day one. When the ‘Shake It Off’ singer released the title track from her album, ‘Lover’, Horan wrote on a screenshot of the tune, “This song is a classic and it’s so important for music,”. Swift reposted the sweet comment, thanking Horan for his kind words. The two performed together during the London stop of Swift’s ‘Reputation’ stadium tour, where she brought out Horan for a performance of his hit tune, “Slow Hands.”
So, clearly, Horan already has a fantastic rapport with both artists, now all that’s left is news of the upcoming collab and we’re set!
