Taylor Swift has defended herself as the only author 

of her 2014 hit Shake It Off in response to a lawsuit 

claiming that she plagiarised lyrics from the 2000 

track Playas Gon’ Play by woman group 3LW.

“The lyrics to Shake It Off had been written solely 

by me,” Swift acknowledged in a sworn declaration filed 

on Monday. “Till studying about Plaintiffs’ declare

in 2017, I had by no means heard the track Playas Gon’

Play and had by no means heard of that track or the group 3LW.”

Playas Gon’ Play songwriters Sean Corridor and Nathan 

Butler filed the copyright go well with in 2017,

citing similarities between the traces “playas gonna play”
