GLOBAL SUPERSTAR MEGHAN TRAINOR UNVEILS NEW EP THE LOVE TRAIN TODAY

Love Train News Slider

FEATURING THE SMASH BOP “ALL THE WAYS” AND HER VERY OWN WEDDING SONG “MARRY ME”

(February 8, 2019 — Los Angeles, CA) — Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and whether you’re planning on smashing bae’s junk to smithereens or making out with a pint of Phish Food, you need some fresh Valentine’s Day bops to get you in the mood for L♡VE. And MEGHAN TRAINOR has got you covered with her new EP, THE LOVE TRAIN [Epic Records.]

You know you want it. And you can freakin’ get it b*tch. On all digital platforms right HERE.

Meghan’s seducing your ears this V-Day, and you know she knows a thing or two about romance. Unless your phone’s been broken for a hot minute, you know that Meghan just got married to the ginger from Spy Kids, and trust when we say, girl is feeling the love. She took a break from her busy schedule to record some fire tracks in Los Angeles alongside frequent collaborators and producers Andrew Wells [5SOS, Fall Out Boy, Jason Mraz], J KASH (Maroon 5, Charlie Puth, Kesha) and Tyler Johnson [Harry Styles, CAM].

We know you want to hear songs about all the hot newlywed sex Meghan and Daryl Sa-BAE-ra are having (did you see what we did there?). Which is why you’ll love the banging’ single “All The Ways.” Billboard was wet for “All The Ways,” calling it “another fun, danceable track to fall in love with.” And would Billboard lie to you, girl?

But perhaps the piece de resistance (that’s French for “Wig Snatch”) is “Marry Me,” a romantic acoustic guitar and ukulele-tinged Awww Fest which delivers all the feels (and then more feels). Meghan wrote the song thirty days after meeting Daryl, and it was so good that she walked down the aisle to it. We know, it’s a little bit #Vomworthy, but also, am I chopping onions right now or are those tears rolling down my face? I’m not crying, you’re crying. 

And as always, our Grammy-Winning, Diamond Single-having QUEEN didn’t just come to play — she came to slay. She’s serving vocals on the passionate, Celine Dion-esque power ballad “After You.” Plus, Meghan’s serving your insatiable thirst for dance-ready bops with the upbeat banger that is “Foolish.” It slaps so hard you’ll be stanning for days.  “As if all the PDA, including foot massages, butterfly kisses and piggy back rides aren’t cringe worthy enough, says her brother and videographer Ryan… I’ve got to film it all!”

Choo choo betch! The Love Train is leaving the station and you better get on board.

Be on the lookout for more surprises very soon as she prepares for a landmark 2019.

Tracklisting:

1.         “All The Ways”

2.         “Marry Me”

3.         “I’m Down”

4.         “After You”

5.         “Foolish”

6.         “Good Mornin’ Featuring Gary Trainor (yes, her dad)”

Grammy-Award winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Meghan Trainor emerged with her 2014 breakout single “All About That Bass” and disrupted contemporary music with nostalgic pop beats and powerhouse vocals that delivered a worldwide anthem for female empowerment. Trainor cemented her rising status as one of the most prominent artists in popular music by charting seven multi-platinum singles, releasing two platinum albums, selling out three headline tours, writing multi-platinum hits for top pop and country artists, and receiving countless industry awards and nominations worldwide.  She is one of only five female artists to receive a diamond certification for her hit single “All About That Bass” which shares the RIAA Gold & Platinum Awards top honor with only 15 other singles in history.

He initially teased the release by way of the first single “Crushed Up. In a little under three weeks, it already eclipsed 10 million Spotify streams and over 7 million YouTube views for its music video. Attracting widespread critical acclaim, The Fader appropriately dubbed it “a colossal flex, and HotNewHipHop touted it as “an immediate banger.” 

Capitalizing on this momentum, he just dropped the follow-up “Jumpin on a Jet” last week. Nearing the four million mark on Spotify and 3 million on YouTube, his codeine-drenched crooning snaps into another magnetic and massive refrain, “Jumpin on and off a jet.” It’s as high class as it is hypnotic. The album also boasts a handful of blockbuster collaborations. “UNICORN PURP” [feat. Young Thug & Gunna] unites three of Atlanta’s most iconoclastic talents on one psyched-out banger. “FIRST OFF” [feat. Travis Scott] threads together wildly woozy melodies as these two titans lock into a chaotic call-and-response.  That’s just the tip of the iceberg as this new body of work represents Future leveling up yet again, and the results prove nothing short of mind-blowing…
