Meghan Trainor was hands down one of the hottest break out stars this summer. Epic Records pulled the songwriter out of the infield and then hit an out-of-the-park grandslam with the release of her breakout single, “All About That Bass.”
Trainor offered the music industry a touch of something new, which was exactly what it needed. The song focused on body image and infused itself with beats resembling those used in the days of doo-wop. Soon enough, a buzz was created and nearly everyone was tapping their feet and singing along to the song. It came as no surprise that Trainor began to battle Taylor Swift for the number one song on the charts. A remarkable battle it was and Trainor came out on top.
Trainor followed up to her phenomenal hit by releasing an EP, Title
, in September 2014. It too shook up the charts by knocking various music veterans down as it soared to the top. Since the release of her EP, her first two singles have received numerous awards from the RIAA as well as a Grammy-nomination. So, it’s really no surprise that her debut major label release hit the shelves and iTunes today.
The album is nothing like Taylor Swift’s recent release of 1989
, but Title
is definitely making a name for itself. Not even twenty minutes after it was released, the Deluxe Version had soared to number one. The number one spot has now been its throne for the past 20 hours. The deluxe version contains 15 songs, which showcase Trainor’s quirky lyrics and the same sound that made us fall in love with her.
Give the entire album a listen if you stylistically enjoy Trainor’s doo-wop infused sound or if you’re looking for something new to listen to. If you’re not entirely sold on the idea of Trainor or if it’s not your cup of tea, I highly recommend listening to three of my favorite tracks:
This song is a bass driven track combined with a piano. It dons sassy lyrics that any girl who transformed an ex-boyfriend can relate to.
Have you ever drank too much and drunk texted an ex? The piano makes this song, but Trainor really nails this track with her lyrics. This song is the first of two that really shows potential to be the next single.
“Like I’m Gonna Lose You”-
Do you like John Legend? Atom Factory manages both John and Meghan, so it’s no surprise that he appears on Title
. Give this duet a listen if you like softer toned pop songs. It’s a ballad and different from any other track on the album. This is easily the other song that could potentially be the next single.
Overall, the album isn’t too shabby; it gets 3.5 stars out of 5. A little less doo-wop and more variety would have made Title
better, but several tracks showcase a new sound for Trainor and maybe even give us a hint of what to expect from her in the future.
