Labrinth Covers Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off"

Labrinth sings Taylor Swift’s new song better than Taylor Swift does!

The British singer-songwriter covered Tay Tay’s “Shake It Off” on BBC1 Radio today. It starts off real mellow and cool, but halfway through, Labrinth picks up and belts the chorus while playing the piano backed by a live band.

In fact, he performed it so well it immediately caught the attention of Miss Taylor Swift herself, posting the video on Facebook with the caption:

OUTSTANDING COVER ALERT.
I am so obsessed with Labrinth’s version of Shake It Off. Unreal.
