- Program Note by publisher


Shake It Off is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift for her fifth album, 1989 (2014). Co-written by Swift and its producers Max Martin and Shellback, Shake It Off is an up-tempo dance-pop track considered to be a departure from Swift's earlier country pop music style.

The song won Favorite Song at the 2015 People's Choice Awards, and also received nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance at the 2015 Grammy Awards.
