This is a slow dance ballad that talks about Meghan Trainor’s insecurities about her body image. It is an acoustic number backed with a violin and Trainor’s soulful vocals. It is about loving you for who you are and not trying to be who others want you to be.

10) “Bang Dem Sticks”

This song is loud, noisy and a bit suggestive. In it, Trainor confesses that she is attracted to drummers, and even raps! It is a song on which Trainor lets down her hair and becomes the proverbial bad girl.
