Taylor Swift - Shake It Off
24 year-old Taylor is from Pennsylvania. She released her debut self-titled album in 2006 peaking at Number 1 on the American Country chart. In 2008 she was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best New Artist but was beaten by Amy Winehouse. Since then she has won 6 Grammy’s and was ranked at number one on Billboard's list of top money makers of 2011, grossing more than $35 million. Taylor’s 4th album ‘Red’ secured her worldwide fame with the huge hits ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ as well as ‘22’. Despite sales of 26 million albums around the world Taylor has decided to leave her country roots behind to release her upcoming pop album ‘1989’. This is the first single which was released on 19th August within minutes of announcing her return on an American radio station. Taylor says she’d listened to a lot of late 1980’s songs which has been the inspiration for her album title.
