Artist Review: Meghan Trainor

Sierra Franklin

Meghan Trainor was born on December 22, 1993, in Nantucket, Massachusetts, and started singing at the age of six. In 2014-2015 Meghan Trainor wrote “All About That Bass,” that was inspired by her appearance and her feelings of insecurity about the pictures of herself. The genre of music she plays in is pop, R&B, doo-wop, and blue-eyed soul.

Meghan’s albums tracklist is The Best Part, All About That Bass, Dear Future Husband, Close Your Eyes, 3 am Like I’m Gonna Lose You, Bang Dem Sticks, Walkashame, Title, What If I, and Lips are Movin is apart of her tracklist. The release date of her tracklist was back on January 9, 2015. The song that really like to listen is her song called No Excuses because it talks about how people shouldn’t criticizing a boy/man for failing to treat a girl right and with respect and to encourage women’s independence and empowerment and that the song teaches about equality and being kind and respectful to people no matter what age young or old. In my opinion, I think this song has a really strong impact on people that feel like they should be respected by others no matter what they look like, what they wear, their skin color, or race because everyone should be empowered and have independence by anyone no matter what they do with their lives they need to feel like they are loved and respected by men that their mothers told them to have respect for their wives, girlfriends, and elders that shouldn’t be criticized.

In my opinion, I feel like I should have respect and feel empowered and have equality like the rest of society no matter what I wear, what my skin color is, and what my body shape looks like to others that don’t see perfection on the inside and out and thinks that I shouldn’t be happy for who I am and shouldn’t change who I am for anyone no matter what they tell me to change to look a certain way or for anyone of that matter for society to make you feel accepted for others.
