Taylor Swift premiered her new single “Shake It Off” and its accompanying music video on Monday.

The singer debuted the song on her highly-anticipated Yahoo livestream, and the video was released just minutes later.

In the clip, Swift takes on different identities — ballerina, rap star, Gaga-esque entertainer — as she sings about her haters and heartbreakers. There’s even a character seemingly inspired by J.Lo, a cheerleader, and, of course, adorable Swift as herself.

The superstar sings, “I go on too many dates/But I can’t make them stay/At least that’s what people say.”

And the chorus goes:

Cause the players gonna play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off
Heart break is gonna break, break, break
And I think it’s gonna fake, fake, fake
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, Shake it off

The song is the first track from Swift’s just-announced new album, 1989, which will hit shelves October 27.
