“Heart Shaker” by Twice was written by the music production team called Galactika and co-composed by David Amber and Sean Alexander and released in 2017. From the lyrics, we can conclude that the song is about the feelings of a girl who boldly confesses to someone who has shaken her heart.

Tamar Herman from Billboard described the song as a “bright pop song [that] incorporates funky guitar riffs, twinkling synths, and soft harmonizing to create a vintage wintertime feel, but with an upbeat melody and impish delivery of the verses and the energetic chorus.”
