Fans who want Lana Del Rey and Taylor Swift to collaborate will be kind of happy with this news. A mashup of Taylor Swift’s “Style” music video with Lana Del Rey’s hit song “Summertime Sadness” has been going viral.
Tumblr user Emmanuel was the brains behind this mashup. He decided to dub over Taylor’s artsy and moody “Style” music video with Lana’s even moodier “Summertime Sadness.” The video description reads: “Taylor Swift’s ‘Style video’ set to ‘Summertime Sadness’ as god originally intended.”
KQED Pop compared the mashup to “Taylor Swift Set To Lana Del Rey Is The New Wizard Of Oz Set To Pink Floyd.” The contributor also explains that the flawless syncing is “is due to sheer coincidence and something called apophenia, which is described as ‘the experience of perceiving patterns or connections in random or meaningless data.'”
Swifties think that the moody tone of Swift’s “Style” music video is the perfect companion to Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness.” Now fans of both singers are hoping for an actual collaboration in the near future. It would make complete sense since Swift and Del Rey often sing about boys and love loss. Fans also think that the singers should collaborate on Swift’s song “Wildest Dreams,” which has been described as a Del-Rey inspired tune. Some fans even think that the tone of the “Style” music video would’ve been a better fit for “Wildest Dreams.”
Fans have taken to Twitter to say that they want Lana and Taylor to duet on the song.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift could be working on some new music of her own with Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello. The Hollywood Life reported that she’s teaching the singer how to write her own songs.
