Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ Is The 8 Mile Battle Rap

August 22nd, 2014

Shake It Off 8 Mile

Taylor Swift dropped her first single in years with Shake It Off, the new track from her upcoming album 1989. While all of us Swifties have been busy shaking it off all week, here at Much we noticed that Taylor’s new track reminds us of something else…Eminem’s final freestyle in 8 Mile. Obvious, right?

The songs are almost carbon copies of one another. Both artists list off the negative things the ‘haters’ say about them, showing defiance and strong ‘I don’t care’ attitude. Have a look!

…is the same as saying:

Em 1

…is almost a verbatim example of:

Em 3

…can only be interpreted as:

Em 2

In conclusion, we applaud Taylor Swift for remaking one of the greatest rap battle scenes from a movie. Now Shake It Off and all that.

Don’t miss Taylor Swift, along with Beyonce, Sam Smith, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Usher, 5 Seconds of Summer, Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea performing at Sunday’s MTV VMAs at 9E/6P on Much.
