All About That Bass may have been released 3 months ago but it is just now taking the UK by storm. Massachusetts born singer, Meghan Trainor climbed to number one this summer with this hooking anthem. The 20 year old singer surprised millions with her unique voice and prodigious tone.
If any of you are like me, you probably heard the name of this song and pre-judged it to be an electronic drum and bass song. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Not only is this an incredible doo wop* song but it also holds an inspirational message.
The message of this song is simple: be proud of your weight! People come in any size or shape. Besides, according to Meghan’s mother, "boy’s like a little more booty to hold at night".
Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj’s release of monstrous selling hits meant that 'All About That Bass' took a knock back in the last couple of weeks but the song still remains popular with a total of over 68 million views on YouTube - and it’s still going up!
Overall, a great pick-me-up song for anyone with weight insecurities or just anyone who’s feeling down. Tackling a growing issue in such an up-beat manner is one of the most genius attempts to resolve the matter so far - and Meghan looks absolutely beautiful! We need more of this in today’s society and the music industry may be the place to win this battle.
