Song of the Summer – ‘All About That Bass’

by Kate Bannon on June 16, 2014

Nashville-based singer/songwriter Meghan Trainor’s new video for her debut single “All About That Bass” (Epic Records) just dropped on VEVO and seems to have stolen the spotlight. The video was directed by renowned director/producer/choreographer Fatima Robinson, who has worked with Rihanna, Michael Jackson and the Black Eyed Peas. The video’s vibrant pastels and upbeat lyrics fuel this soon-to-be hit as she competes to win the race for 2014’s Song of the Summer.

“All About That Bass” is a sugar-drench pop track that promotes positive self-image. Meghan casts aside the media’s exaltation of impossibly skinny waists only attainable with a daily diet of Photoshop. “When writing the song, I was thinking about girls today and how, because of social media, there’s more pressure to be society’s version of perfect,” says Trainor. “The message of the song is to love your body no matter what.”

At only twenty years old, Trainor is quickly establishing herself as a talented singer, writer and multi-instrumentalist. She scored her first record deal at eighteen and has since written tracks for popular artists including Grammy-winning country stars Rascal Flatts and reggae/rock/R&B group Common Kings. Her sound combines classic pop and 50’s throwback with a touch of hip hop.

“All About That Bass” is currently offered as a free download on Meghan Trainor’s website up until June 30th when it will be released at all digital retailers. Her upcoming Epic Records CD which is set to debut later this year.
