The two songwriters behind the 3LW song “Playas Gon’ Play” are claiming Taylor Swift stole lyrics for her mega hit “Shake It Off” in a new lawsuit, TMZ reports.
Sean Hall and Nathan Butler say they wrote “Playas Gon’ Play” back in 2001, and the girl group recorded it. The song’s lyrics include the line: “Playas, they gonna play and haters, they gonna hate.”
The songwriters are alleging that 20 percent of “Shake it Off” is their work, but Swift’s rep tells TMZ, “This is a ridiculous claim and nothing more than a money grab. The law is simple and clear. They do not have a case.”
