Meghan Trainor's new album, which features production from Stint and other artists, will be released on October 21, 2022. Among the featured artists on the album are Scott Hoying, Teddy Swims, Theron Theron, Natti Natasha, and Arturo Sandoval.
Meghan Trainor's second studio album for a big label finds the singer revisiting the doo-wop style of her first (2015). The first track, titled "Bad for Me," came out on June 24, 2022.
Meghan Trainor called the songs she was penning for her third studio album with a major label her "best work yet" back in March of 2018. After a string of unsuccessful singles, she began to doubt the viability of the entire endeavor.
Meghan Trainor revised it four times to "adjust to what's going on in the music industry," causing the album's release to be pushed back many times. When it was launched in January of 2020, Treat Myself was met with mixed reviews. Later the same year, she released her second album, A Very Trainor Christmas.
In February of 2021, Meghan Trainor became a mother. After her song "Title" became viral in 2014 on the TikTok video-sharing platform, she was inspired to take a different approach for her fifth major-label studio album.
Meghan Trainor stated in May 2021 that she will be returning to the doo-wop style she first explored on her 2015 major label debut album, Title. Motherhood, she said, made her a stronger woman and a more emotional songwriter, and the people had spoken, and she heard them.
On Takin' It Back, Meghan Trainor revives her signature doo-wop sound. The effects of pregnancy on her, and "how it's hard and [she is] not perfect all the time," are prominent themes in the album. She's starting to appreciate it, too.
Those "huge, powerful tunes that mean a lot," as Meghan Trainor put it, are featured prominently. "It's kind of like Title 2.0," she remarked. It's my doo-wop, it's my old school, it's authentic to me in all the crazy genres I go to. As raucous as ever, with lyrics that are better than ever.
Inspired by the first time Trainor felt genuine happiness since penning "Dear Future Husband," when Mozella told her that other musicians wished to replicate her sound, the title of Takin' It Back was born (2015). That's why the album's title tune is about "bringing it back to the good music when they had actual instruments," as Trainor put it.
There are "relatable lyrics," a "reggae bop," a "Latin smash featuring Natti Natasha," and "Trainor-styled songs," as the press release puts it. The song "Made You Gaze" was sparked by her therapist's exercise of having her look at herself naked for five minutes to help her overcome her body image issues she was having after giving birth.
Lyrics about sharing updates on social media are woven throughout "Don't I Make It Look Easy," a song about the responsibilities that Trainor took on after becoming a mother.
Songwriters Natasha and Arturo Sandoval drew inspiration from Perry Como's 1954 single "Papa Loves Mambo" for "Mama Wanna Mambo," which also features Sandoval on guest vocals. It's about how exhausted moms feel and how they'd love to take a break to dance for a minute while they watch their kids play.
On May 11, 2022, Meghan Trainor released an episode of her album-focused podcast Workin on It, which she co-hosts with her brother. The episode was titled "Workin' On Making An Album."
Soon after, Meghan Trainor began promoting a song called "Bad for Me" off the album. American singer-songwriter Teddy Swims provides a guest vocal appearance on this track, which was published on June 24, 2022.
The film was produced by Stint and Frederico Vindver and has writing by Trainor, Ajay Bhattacharyya, and Stephen Wrabel about a mutually destructive relationship. Don't promise something you can't deliver on; even the finest of intentions can backfire and cause pain; however, my love for you is limitless.
After signing with Epic Records and releasing her debut single "All About That Bass" in 2014, Meghan Trainor quickly ascended to stardom. The song peaked at the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 list and has since sold over 11 million copies throughout the world.
To date, Meghan Trainor and the label have published four studio albums, and the singer/songwriter has won numerous awards and nominations, including the 2016 Grammy for Best New Artist.
From an early age, Meghan Trainor had a passion for music, and she has since published three acoustic albums under her own name: Meghan Trainor (2009), I'll Sing with You, and Only 17. (2010).
In 2013, Meghan Trainor began working as a songwriter and record producer for other artists. Title, Trainor's debut studio album for a major label, peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and featured the top ten songs "Lips Are Movin" and "Like I'm Gonna Lose You."
Her 2016 R&B album Thank You was lead by the hit single "No," and both the album and the single peaked at position three on their respective lists.
Treat Myself (2020), Meghan Trainor's third album with Epic, was inspired by electronic dance music and was an effort to keep up with the times. Later that year, she released A Very Trainor Christmas, a holiday CD.
Sometimes condemned as antifeminist or regressive, Meghan Trainor's lyrics regularly feature themes of womanhood, body image, and personal strength. Her sound fuses pop, R&B, doo-wop, and blue-eyed soul in a style reminiscent of the 1950s.
