Taylor Swift sure has changed from her days as a 16-year-old singing country songs from her self-titled début album.
And if her latest music video is an indication of things to come, Swift will be trading her country ballads for pop songs and more twerking, cheerleading, and ballerina ensembles.
Yes, you read that right. But if you need to see it for yourself, give the video below a watch.
Swift unveiled the music video for her new single, "Shake It Off" as part of a Yahoo Live Stream announcement Monday afternoon. With it came the news that Swift will also be releasing her first pop album called "1989" on Oct. 27. In the livestream, Swift said the upbeat and undeniably pop song was inspired by all the backlash she's faced since becoming an international celebrity.
"I go on too many dates but I can't make them stay. That's what people say. But I keep cruising. Can't stop, won't stop moving. It's like I've got this music in my mind saying it's going to be alright because the players gonna play, play, play, play, play and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate. Baby I'm gonna just shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake it off."
While "1989" might be taking Swift in a new direction, it looks like she'll be turning to old talent to help get it done. As the Washington Post points out, Swift teamed up with producers Max Martin (known for his work with the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync and Britney Spears) and Shellback for "Shake It Off." Swift worked with the two to produce her other radio hits like “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “22″ and “I Knew You Were Trouble.”
