Meghan wrote her first song at age seven and within a few years began throwing herself fully into songwriting In addition to self-recording, Meghan (a longtime piano player) also picked up a guitar, quickly mastered a bunch of chords, and eventually added ukulele and percussion to her repertoire. When she was still in high school, Meghan landed a deal with a Nashville music publishing company and started writing songs for artists from all corners of the music world.
Meghan joined forces with Grammy-nominated producer, Kevin Kadish to write the bold and bouncy debut single “All About That Bass” which became a phenomenal global hit topping the charts in the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Germany. It peaked at #1 in the iTunes singles chart in 58 countries. “All About The Bass” topped the Billboard Hot 100 charts for 8 weeks, becoming the longest-running #1 ever released on Epic Records and beating the record set by Michael Jackson. The music video has been viewed a whopping 425 million times on Youtube.
Meghan came up with “All About That Bass,” a super-playful but unapologetic self-empowerment anthem for ladies who don’t fit the standard beauty ideal. “Writing that song, I was thinking about girls today and how there’s even more pressure to be thin now, because of Instagram and selfies and that constant competition,” she says, noting that the message of “All About That Bass” is to “love your body no matter what.” The song received an MTV EMA nomination for “Best Song with a Message” and Meghan was nominated for “New Artist of the Year” at the American Music Awards. She is also in the running for “Record of the Year” and “Song of the Year” at the 2015 Grammy Awards, also “Favourite Song” and “Favourite Breakout Artist” at the 2015 People’s Choice Awards.
With songs addressing everything from drunk-texting and the walk of shame to dating anxiety and post-breakup heartache, there’s no shortage of “All About That Bass”-style honesty on Meghan’s hotly anticipated debut album “Title”, scheduled to drop on 13 January. Meghan is set to release a debut album that brings her intense flair for indelible melody to her own blend of throwback hip-hop, classic pop, and beat-heavy Caribbean music. The hot new single “Lips are Movin” has already hit the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and gone platinum.
Already garnering rave reviews for her solid live performances, Meghan will kick off her first ever headline tour in February with sold-out shows in the US and Canada before coming to our shores. Singapore fans are in for a fun-filled, unforgettable night with Meghan Trainor on 23 April 2015!
