One of the things that sets apart highly viewed and entertaining YouTube covers (especially collabs) is when it looks like the people involved are actually having FUN. And Alex G and Alyson Stoner look like they’re having more fun in their cover of Taylor Swift‘s “Shake It Off” than any non-Tay version of this song I’ve seen so far. And I have seen multitudes.
Beyond the entertainment factor, these two are just good singers, and they do the song justice. And the rap….well, I’ll let you get there yourself.
