Charli XCX puts a new punk spin on Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off'
Shake it Off
What happens when Charli XCX covers a Taylor Swift single? You get a completely new song.
“Shake It Off” is known for being one of Swift’s most danceable tunes, but Charli XCX’s take on the hook-filled track sounds like it could be from the days of Joan Jett and Janis Joplin.
The “Boom Clap” singer visited BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge Tuesday and put her own twist on Swift’s Grammy-nominated hit. With “Hey, hey… No way” chants as well as an emphasis on electric guitar and drums, Charli turned “Shake It Off” into a punk anthem.
