Right now, you can check out an in-depth story on Thank You in the new issue of Seventeen featuring Meghan on the cover. Next up, she’s nominated for “Best Female Artist” at the Radio Disney Music Awards and “Best Song That Makes You Smile” (“Better When I’m Dancing”), airing April 30. Her influence is expanding across genres too. She recently co-wrote “I Like The Sound of That” with Rascal Flatts, and the song went #1 at Country Radio, making for her first #1 at the format.
Meghan Trainor continues to break records, make history, inspire countless fans, and change the landscape of pop music and culture. She began 2016 by winning “Best New Artist” at the GRAMMY® Awards and “Favorite Album” for her chart-dominating RIAA platinum full-length debut, Title [Epic Records], at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards. Last year, Title not only bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, but it became the “First #1 full-length debut from a female solo artist in five years.” It stood out as “One of only seven albums to sell over a million copies in 2015.” It also yielded four inescapable multiplatinum Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 smashes—“All About That Bass” (9x-platinum), “Lips Are Movin” (4x-platinum), “Dear Future Husband” (2x-platinum), and “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” [featuring John Legend] (2x-platinum). Title was the #5 most streamed album globally in 2015 and currently has over 900 million streams worldwide. Meghan also has over 2 billion video views on VEVO.
For Meghan Trainor, it all started with “All About That Bass.” The song introduced her to the world, and she became a household name in the process. A bona fide cultural phenomenon “All About That Bass” spent eight weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the “longest-running Hot 100 #1 by an Epic Records artist” and “longest-running Hot 100 #1 by a female artist in 2014.” Its influence continued long after its release, scoring “Top Hot 100 Song” and “Top Digital Song” at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards as well as the 2015 ASCAP Pop Music Award for “Most Performed Song.” The breakout hit was nominated for “Song Of The Year” and “Record Of The Year” at the 2015 GRAMMY® Awards. She received three American Music Awards nominations and three Teen Choice Awards nominations. An explosive performer, her headlining MTrain Tour packed venues across the U.S. during the summer in 2015.

Meghan Trainor brought her sassy personality to The Ellen Degeneres Show on April 20, where she performed her fiery hit “No”. Rocking a sparkly skirt and a military jacket that accented her red hair, the singer and her backup dancers shimmied and popped along to track.
“No” has been receiving tons of love lately: it is currently sitting at the No. 4 spot on the Billboard Hot 100!
Along with the performance, Ellen surprised Meghan with the physical GRAMMY she won this year for Best New Artist. The singer, who thought the award was still being made, teared up when the show host pulled it from her seat. After the initial shock surpassed, the artist announced she will be touring very soon.

Meghan Trainor Opens Up for Seventeen Magazine’s May Issue!
‘Her name is no, but our latest cover star Meghan Trainor’s motto is “YAAAAAAAS” when it comes to loving the skin she’s in. And the Thank You singer has recently discovered a bizarre side effect to her curve-confident attitude.
“A lot of people want to grab my butt ’cause they’re like, ‘Oh, the bass,'” Meghan told us. “They ask, and I’m like ‘Yeah, no thanks.”
Even so, there are a couple of celeb booties she’d love to grab if given the chance.
“I just wanna know what J.Lo’s butt feels like because it’s the most famous butt of all time,” she says. “As for a guy, Leonardo DiCaprio’s. I’m obsessed with him, and I think that would be amazing.”
No ifs, ands, or butts about it—Meghan’s confidence is through the roof. Need proof? Just check out her brand new style in recent red carpet pics.’
