Is the world of pop music ready for Lo & Swift?

Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez may collaborate on a new song, according to Us. The rumor comes after Lopez put in a surprise appearance at Taylor’s concert for a duet of “Jenny From the Block.”

This doesn’t sound like it would be Beethoven or anything, but it’s kind of a fun idea, right? It’s cute when Taylor Swift crosses genres. One of my favorite things about her is what a musical fangirl she is. Remember that time she rapped with T-Pain? That was great.

Unfortunately, it sounds like the collab is not to be. “I mean, for me, I love her, she’s amazing. She has my number, we text, but we haven’t texted about going into the studio,” Taylor told E! Online.

Yeah, but Joey Fatone said *NSYNC weren’t getting back together for the VMAs, and they totally were. So Swift/Lopez superfans should continue to dream, I feel like.

One person Taylor probably won’t be collaborating with: Kanye West, since she’s still mocking his interruption with her homemade jam.
