Camila Cabello in the studio with Diplo

Camila Cabello may be recording with an unexpected collaborator.

Pop star Camila Cabello has sparked rumours she is collaborating with her friend Taylor Swift's former rival Diplo.

The DJ and producer documented his night in the recording studio on Wednesday (30Mar16) via popular mobile app Snapchat, and making an unexpected appearance in one of his shared videos was Fifth Harmony star Camila.

In one clip, the singer plays a cover of Tracy Chapman's Fast Car on guitar, and in another, she stands at a microphone whisper-singing "Major Lazer", the name of Diplo's electronic music group.

The collaboration comes nearly a year-and-a-half after Diplo sparked an online feud with Camila's good friend Taylor, suggesting someone should "make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty."

The two settled their minor fall-out at a Grammy Awards afterparty in 2015.

Although Camila may be pursuing solo efforts with Diplo, her group Fifth Harmony is still going strong.

The five-piece American girl group, which is also comprised of Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane Hansen, Normani Kordei and Lauren Jauregui, is currently preparing for the release of its second studio album 7/27, due to reach listeners on 20 May (16).

And according to Ally, fans are in for a whole new Fifth Harmony experience when they hear the songs on the new record.

"Coming off (our 2015 album) Reflection, what we really wanted to do was be more vulnerable," she told the Los Angeles Times. "On the last album, we had a lot of high-energy, empowering songs. But we wanted to hone in more on our emotions and talk about love and heartbreak and some of the experiences that we’ve been through."

"We’re all really happy because we’ve been able to do that and be more open and honest," Ally explained. "I’m excited because I feel like a lot of our fans, and the world, haven’t really been able to see that side of us, and I think it’s good to show. It’s good to unpeel layers of yourself, and we’re unpeeling layers of the group. We are growing and evolving. It’ll reflect in the music."
