Taylor Swift is back in court, this time to prove she wrote “Shake It Off”

You wouldn’t think the woman who wrote “All Too Well” would have to prove that she also penned a little nursery rhyme like “Shake It Off,” but here we are.

Taylor Swift is back in court, this time facing off against the songwriters behind 3LW’s track “Playas Gon’ Play.”

Sean Hall and Nathan Butler first filed a copyright suit in 2017, but it was quickly struck down by a federal judge; in 2019.

An appeals court overturned that ruling, and the case moved forward once again, leading to the motion Swift filed earlier this week.

“The lyrics to Shake It Off were written entirely by me,” she states in a sworn declaration

“Until learning about Plaintiffs’ claim in 2017, I had never heard the song Playas Gon’ Play and had never heard of that song or the group 3LW.”

Is it possible that Hall and Butler originated the exact phrasing later used in “Shake It Off”?

Even Swift admits that this is far from her most original hook, but “Shake It Off” is still a major cash cow, so it’s not hard to see why Hall and Butler would pursue this.
