B.o.B ft. Taylor Swift: 'Both Of Us'
Two acts on opposing ends of the music spectrum collaborating might be a popular trend these days, but B.o.B teaming up with Taylor Swift still managed to raise a fair few eyebrows. His strike rate for hook-ups is impressive, with the Bruno Mars-assisted 'Nothin' On You' and 'Airplanes' featuring Hayley Williams delivering his biggest hits to date - but 'Both Of Us' is undoubtedly his most daring yet.

Neither singer steps outside their comfort zone, as Taylor delivers a gentle, country-folk chorus about being "strong enough to lift not one, but both of us", while B.o.B preaches a hoes-over-clothes mantra to gritty, booty-bouncing beats. The result is an intriguing if not slightly sickly rap ballad which, truth be told, feels more contrived than brave.
