The singer is accused of libel by Sean Hall and Nathan Butler, the two songwriters behind the song from 2001 "Playas Gon' Play" by 3LW.

The 3LW song has the words "Playas, they gonna play" and "haters, they gonna hate" while Taylor's smash hit song has lyrics

that read "'Cause the players are going to play, play play, play, and the haters will love, hate and hate and hate.

"The lyrics to 'Shake It Off were written entirely by me," Taylor said in a sworn statement that was filed in response to the allegations.

Prior to learning about Plaintiff's claim in 2017 I'd never heard of the song 'PlayasGon Play', and I had never heard of the track or any of the members from 3LW," she continued (via Billboard).

For those who aren't aware, 3LW was the girl group consisting of Naturi Naughton as well as The Cheetah Girls stars

Adrienne Bailon and Kiely Williams. Their most famous hit song is "No More (Baby I'ma Do Right)."

None of the albums I was listening to in my youth or later were produced from 3LW. I've never heard the song 'Playas

Gonna Play in the air, on TV or in any movie. My first experience with encountered the tune was shortly after this assertion was made.
