Pop singer and songwriter Meghan Trainor had already devoted most of her life to music when she scored her first hit in 2014 (at the age of 20) with a dance-friendly paean to body positivity, "All About That Bass." Trainor was raised in Massachusetts where she began making music at the age of 7. Trainor played guitar, trumpet and keyboards in high school, and sang in a local band for four years. She attended the Berklee College of Music's Performance Program in 2009 and by the time she was 18, Trainor had self-released three albums of her own material and landed a publishing deal with Big Yellow Dog Music before signing with Epic Records.
Trainor's first single for Epic was "All About That Bass," in which she proudly declared she's "no stick figure silicon Barbie doll" and "every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top." The pastel-colored video for "All About That Bass" became an online sensation, racking up over 1.6 million views on YouTube within a month of its debut in June 2014. "All About That Bass" stormed up the Billboard Hot 100 chart, not only in the U.S. but throughout the world. The song has been five-times certified platinum, selling over 4 million copies in America alone; international sales reached over 6 million, cementing "All About That Bass"' status as one of the biggest singles of 2014. It’s sequel, "Lips Are Moving" was also a notable hit, reaching #4 on the Billboard charts and earning double-platinum certification, setting the stage nicely for the January 2015 release of Trainor's debut, Title. The album promptly hit #1 in multiple countries. Her third single from the album, "Dear Future Husband" reached #24 on the U.S. singles chart. A contribution to The Peanuts Movie soundtrack, a co-write on Rascal Flatts' single "I Like the Sound of That" and most significantly, a Grammy® nomination rounded out her impressive year. A few weeks before dropping the first single from her next album in March 2016, Trainor won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Her follow-up album, Thank You is slated for a May 2016 release.
