Ed Sheeran Beatboxes Taylor Swift’s New Single ‘Shake It Off’
Rather than asking the hard-hitting questions about their music or pestering them to spill some exclusive details, he confused his interviewees by randomly speaking the lyrics to Taylor Swift‘s “Shake It Off.”
Sam Smith, Charli XCX, Nick Jonas, and Mary Lambert were among the few celebrities who were caught off-guard by Paul, but Taylor’s best friend Ed Sheeran caught on immediately and beat-boxed a gangster remix.
“Ain’t gonna shake it off / I’m gonna take it off,” he sings at the 1:30 mark with some fly dance grooves.
“Shake It Off,” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, and it also took Taylor to the No. 1 on Billboard’s Artist 100 chart and the iTunes songs chart. The hater-dismissal anthem is the lead single off her 1989 album, due out October 27 via Big Machine Records.
