Songwriters Accuse Taylor Swift Of Stealing Part of 'Shake It Off' From 3LW Song

Remember aughties girl group 3LW?

Evidently, their songwriters allege that Taylor Swift stole lyrics from one of their songs to use in her massively successful hit single, "Shake It Off."

According to TMZ, Sean Hall and Nathan Butler say that Swift stole the lines, "The playas gon' play" and "Them haters gonna hate," from a song they wrote for 3LW in 2000, entitled, "Playas Gon' Play."

As payback, Hall and Butler are asking for a 20 percent songwriting credit on "Shake It Off," plus a piece of royalties.

Revisit both songs, and tell us what you think...

Okay first of all 3lw are no longer together they haven't been together since 2007 or eight and also there is no way Taylor  ripped off those lyrics Because her lyrics are formed differently she says in the players going to play and she repeats herself to make the chorus catchy and stuff 3lw lyrics don't do that and that song plus they're talking about two different subjects and 3lw song they're talking about a relationship that there in and how everybody else seems to have an opinion but shouldn't be paying attention to it and Taylor song she's just talking about her haters and general when it comes to her so yeah  this is just a way to make some money

Taylor's rep told 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."
