Meghan Trainor Biography (Wikipedia)

Meghan Elizabeth Trainor (born December 22, 1993) is an American singer-songwriter. She is known for her debut single "All About That Bass", and for being the recipient of the Grammy Award for Best New Artist at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. Interested in music from a young age, she wrote, recorded, and produced three independently released albums between 2009 and 2011. After signing a publishing deal with Big Yellow Dog Music, Trainor wrote and helped produce country and pop music for other artists in 2013. She met producer Kevin Kadish in June that year, with whom she wrote "All About That Bass".

Trainor rose to fame after signing with Epic Records in 2014 and releasing the song. It topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for eight consecutive weeks and received a diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), but drew criticism for its lyrical content. The song was included on her debut major-label studio album, Title (2015), which was also supported by the top-10 peaking "Lips Are Movin" and "Like I'm Gonna Lose You". The album achieved a number one debut on the US Billboard 200 and triple platinum certification from the RIAA. Trainor's follow-up album, Thank You (2016), was led by "No", which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100. The album debuted at the same position on the US Billboard 200 and was certified platinum by the RIAA. Her third album with the label, Treat Myself, was released in January 2020.
