This guitar-heavy pop blast is the title track and lead single of teenage singer-songwriter Demi Lovato''s second album. It was premiered on Radio Disney, June 17, 2009.
Mher Filian, Isaac Hasson and Lindy Robbins ("What's Left of Me") penned the song. It is one of three songs on Here We Go Again that Demi has no writing credits for. Filian and Hasson also produced the track under the name of SuperSpy.
In this song, Demi expresses her feelings about breaking-up with her boyfriend. She told Reuters that though many of her songs are about boys, in reality, stardom gets in the way of teen romance. Demi added that it's hard to develop a meaningful relationship when a boy kisses her then exclaims, "I can't believe I'm kissing you." "I hate relationships," said Demi, "so I'm not like a relationship-type person. But I have a lot of cute friends, That's all I need when you're 16 and in the spotlight."
Taylor Swift's “Shake It Off” was inspired by how she'd learned to deal with all the false rumors that circulated about her. "The only thing we can control is our reaction to that ,” said Swift. "You can either let it get to you … [or] you just shake it off."
