The music world is in for another hit, thanks to Meghan Trainor’s new album, Thank You. The “All About That Bass” Grammy singer’s Thank You release date is Friday, May 13 (tomorrow!) on iTunes, but if you can’t wait then you can start streaming it now on Apple Music. Meghan Trainor’s songs have a habit of sticking in your head for days after hearing them, even if you wished they’d stop. (But is that such a bad thing?) Meaghan Trainor’s tour starts its first concert in Buffalo, New York but until then, here are four hit songs from Trainor’s sophomore album, Thank You.
This song is about Trainor telling a guy that she’s not interested, and judging by the capital letters, she really means it. “My name is no, my sign is no, my number is no, you need to let it go” are the lyrics that will keep you entertained and dancing with the singer, making you wish you could do this in real life if you haven’t already. Most girls can relate to the concept of a guy hitting on them in a noisy club but never really taking the hint. The music video has an evident ‘90s vibe and gives a throwback feel to Destiny’s Child and Britney Spears.
“If I was you, I’d wanna be me too.” This song is bound to get stuck in your head all day and sends the message of empowerment to women, which is the overall theme of Trainor’s new album. The music video recently had to be removed and then reposted by Trainor because her body was edited, which angered the singer, who is a self-proclaimed poster child for “no Photoshop.” Trainor has said numerous times that she’s comfortable with her body and thinks girls should be too. The song talks about how she’s confident in herself, grateful for herself, and loves who she is as a whole.
“Put your favorite heels on/’Cause they make you feel strong.” What girl doesn’t love feeling powerful in her favorite heels? They may not always be comfortable after five minutes, but Trainor clearly wants women to feel great about themselves and have a good time. Using a play on the term “man up,” Trainor wants women to “woman up” and do what makes them happy. With albums like this one and Lemonade, women are being encouraged to be themselves and who better to spread that message than other woman?
“Watch Me Do”
Trainor knows she’s not the best, but she’s feeling herself a lot in this song and doesn’t care who sees. She also talks about waking up and feeling a certain way while counting her stacks of cash. Who hates doing that anyway?
Trainor’s new album is sure to be a hit and fans already love the released songs. And, for the gift of her new album, to Meghan Trainor we say “Thank You.”
