Review: 'All About That Bass' singer releases album

After reaching the top of the charts with “All About That Bass,” Meghan Trainor has released a new album “Title.”
Trainor’s fans are addicted to her honest songs about life, long and wrong decisions, but she did things a little differently with this album. She released an EP with five songs on it in September, and didn’t release her completed album until Jan. 9, four months after her extended plays were released.
Trainor’s hit single “All About That Bass,” paved the way for her new album, and set the bar high for her full album.
Trainor has a tendency to commit to honesty and real issues that people, specifically young women, have today. Her lyrics express these issues in a way that reflects her personal experiences.
Trainor is known for writing most of her own lyrics, and there are many songs that stand out on this album. One of the best is “Like I’m Gonna Lose You.”
This song features John Legend, and shows listeners Trainor’s soulful side. Legend adds a sense of comfort to this track, offering a familiarity.
The lyrics of this song can really resonate with today’s society. The lyrics state “I’m gonna love you like I’m gonna lose you. I’m gonna hold you like I’m saying goodbye.” Being taken for granted is a relatable theme for young people today.
Although Trainor has slow serious songs, she is better known for her upbeat and fast paced songs.
“Bang Dem Sticks” is a song Trainor wrote and recorded in her home in Nashville. The song shows off her rap skills. This is one of the special talents that allows Trainor to stand out compared to other artists that have a similar style to hers.
Another standout song is “No Good for You,” which has a strong pop feel to it. It incorporates a certain boy band tempo with a catchy tune.
The moral of the lyrics is especially relatable for girls, as it is about that one friend who falls for the wrong guy.
This song expresses exactly how most people feel in those situations. Everything that people want to say to that friend can be found in this track.
Overall, “Title” is a relatable album. Many girls will be able to understand a specific life experience through a specific song on this album.
These catchy tunes and relatable lyrics will keep fans listening to this album for weeks one end.
