President Barrack Obama knows how to “Shake It Off” in a recently released YouTube video.

A genius YouTube user named “Baracksdubs” compiled President Obama’s speeches to play in line with Taylor Swift’s hit single, “Shake It Off.” The 90-second clip features splices of President Obama’s speeches that match with Swift’s lyrics for the song.

In case you were wondering, President Obama has previously mentioned Swift in one of his speeches during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in 2013. He addressed the importance on making progress on important issues and said that the Republicans fell in love with the sequester that they can’t stop talking about it. He compared it to the feeling of being “trapped in a Taylor Swift album.”

“Barack’s Dubs” has been famous for creating lip dubs featuring the United States president. “Barack’s Dubs” has garnered over 44 million views for a President Obama lip dub on Carly Rae Jepsen’s song, “Call Me Maybe.”

The user’s YouTube page has been filled with mostly positive comments that the latest lip dub is the best they’ve seen so far. “Barack’s Dubs” also hinted of an upcoming lip dub of President Obama on the song, “Bang Bang” performed by Ariana Grande, Jessie J and Nicki Minaj. The “Bang Bang” lip dub was said to be released early March.

We wonder what Taylor Swift thinks of President Obama’s performance of “Shake It Off.”

Mashable reported that President Obama’s performance on this lip dub deserves to win the “Song of the Year” award at the Grammys held last Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015.

President Obama isn’t the only one making his own rendition of the Taylor Swift hit song. “Boom Clap” singer, Charli XCX, also performed her own version of “Shake It Off” during a visit to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge on Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015.

According to Us Weekly, Charli XCX added a “punk spin on the poppy track.” Charli XCX has been known for her performance with other artists such as Icona Pop’s 2012 “I Love It” and “Fancy” with Iggy Azalea. Her song, “Boom Clap” has also scored her first number one on Billboard.
