Drake & Taylor Swift Draylor are collaborating, and no that's not code for dating

For any of you who are still 'shipping Taylor Swift and Drake, I have good news and bad news.

The good news? They're definitely still hanging out, as evidenced by the very cryptic photo Drake posted of Swift on his Instagram.

Is that velvet?

The photo shows the two of them hanging out (at Drake's birthday party maybe?) and the caption says only, "Is that velvet?" with a flower emoji. If anyone knows how to decode that, get at us.

The bad news, however, is that they both still deny that there's anything more than a friendship between them, and sources close to them are backing that up.

"They are not dating or hooking up," an insider told E! News this week, adding, "They are both purely friends."

That's a little contradictory to the reports we've been hearing about all the time the two of them have been spending together. As TMZ reported, Swift and her squad went to Drake's birthday party, where he introduced Swift to his mom and allegedly gave her the "VIP treatment."

"At one point Drake and Taylor were seen near the DJ together talking, his arm over her shoulder for a minute like a real friend moment. It looked like they were talking about something deep," an onlooker said of their cozy behavior at the bash.

The other thing we know is that regardless of their relationship status, Swift and Drake are collaborating. A source told E! News that they're working on at least one song together, and that it's "very catchy."

"The music they have been working on is different," the insider said. "They've both been having a great time in the studio."
