Taylor Swift Sued For the Song "Shake it Off" Over Ripped Off Lyrics

Taylor Swift was recently sued for the song "Shake it Off" by songwriters who claim she ripped off the material from 2001 3LW single Playas Gon' Play. Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler said that “Look What You Made Me Do” singer lifted as much as 20% of their song Playas Gon' Play for her 2014 hit Shake it Off. Hall and Butler are both veterans in the music industry so they know what they are doing. Hall previously worked with Justin Bieber and Pink, while Butler has done work for the Backstreet Boys and Victoria Beckham.

Playas Gon' Play, which was released in May of 2001, hit 81 on Billboard's Hot 100 and was subsequently honored this summer by the music media stalwart as the 89th best on the list of the 100 Greatest Girl Group Songs of All Time.

The publication called the effort from 3LW -- which consisted of Adrienne Bailon, Kiely Williams and Naturi Naughton 'an airtight production with a knocking beat that fizzes delectably but unpredictably.'

Lyrics to Playas Gon' Play, which were writen by Hall and Butler, included: "Playas, they gonna play/ And haters, they gonna hate/ Ballers, they gonna ball/ Shot callers, they gonna call."

That comes in contrast to Swift's 2014 song, which included in the chorus, "Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play/ And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate / Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake I shake it off, I shake it off."
