Taylor Swift “Shakes Off” 3LW Song Lawsuit

Published: Tuesday 13th Dec 2022 by Ryan

Taylor Swift has just scored a major legal victory in her battle of lyrics from her hit song ‘Shake It Off.’ 

Full story below…

Swift and songwriters Nathan Butler and Sean Hall have asked that a judge to “[dimiss] this action in its entirety,” according to Variety.

The trail over the song was supposed to begin next month, however, it appears that will no longer happen.

The terms of the settlement are currently unclear, however, the songwriting credits remain unchanged as of reporting.

Previously, the two songwriters alleged that Swift stole lyrics from the 3LW song ‘Playas Gon’ Play,’ which they helped to write.

Swift’s legal team argued that the song used terminology that appeared in everyday language and that the phrase “playas gon’ play” was part of the popular vernacular before Sean Hall and Nathan Butler wrote the song.

Prior to heading to trail next month, the case had been set aside by a federal judge in 2018 before being reinstated by an appeals court the following year.

Swift’s reps have no commented on the matter as of reporting.

    Money Vs No Money at its finest. Taylor and everyone else knows what she was referencing when she wrote that god awful song. She was a little girl when the original song came out and she sang it. America is such a crooked and corrupt place. Ed Sheeran did the right thing by giving TLC their credit.

    Swfit’s team knew the 3LW songwriters had a solid case. Should’ve just given them their credit from the jump.

    “Players they gon play and haters they gonna hate”
    “The players gonna play play play play play and the haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate”

    Shake it off is a way better song, has 3 billion views on youtube. No one owns a sentence, not even the same one.

      It’s not just the sentence. it’s the timing as well. Very similar.

    Get a job. One that actually pays. Instead of trying to swindle money from someone who can actually write hits when you can’t.

    Nathan Butler and Sean Hall are a couple of bums trying to get some loose change from Queen Taylor Swift 👑. Nathan Butler and Sean Hall are obviously jealous of the Queen Taylor Swift 👑 and all her success. Black people are always jealous of their own, and they try to drag them down, so they would obviously do it to Queen Taylor Swift 👑. ✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻✊🏻
