Watch Labrinth Cover Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ [VIDEO]

Subscribe to PopCrush on

We’ve already been blown away by Meghan Trainor’s acoustic cover of Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off,’ so it’s about time another artist took a stab at the insanely fun tune. This time, Labrinth performed his version of the track, infusing the song with a funky mellow vibe.

The British singer-songwriter performed his cover of T. Swift while at BBC Radio 1, the place that hosts so many unbelievable covers we’re seething with jealousy. While his rendition starts off with a more earthy, slower tone that Swift’s, as soon as the bridge starts building halfway through the song (“Shake it for me,” Labrinth belts) that’s when he really shines, giving the track a passionate, Motown-like feel. We can’t get enough!

Swift was so impressed with his cover herself that she even shared the video on Facebook.

“OUTSTANDING COVER ALERT,” she wrote, emphasizing her love in all caps. “I am so obsessed with Labrinth’s version of Shake It Off. Unreal.”
