Meghan Trainor – NO (Single Premiere)
Meghan Trainor is ready to storm the charts again with her brand new single ‘NO’ the first serving from her forthcoming sophomore album ‘Thank You’.
Since signing a record deal with Epic Records in 2014, Meghan Trainor has had an immensely successful breakthrough year in 2015 skyrocketing to fame with the release of her major-label debut studio album, ‘Title’, preceded by mega-hits ‘All About That Bass’ and ‘Lips Are Movin’ which were prominently influenced by the 1950s and 1960s eras. The pop sensation is not losing momentum however and, by the sounds of her new single, shedding her cutesy doo-wop style for her next project.
‘NO’ was produced by Ricky Reed, the mastermind behind hits such as Jason Derulo’s ‘Talk Dirty’/’Get Ugly’ and Fifth Harmony’s ‘Bo$$’. The track starts of unassuming before launching into a sassy urban-infused number, “My name is no / My sign is no / My number is no / You need to let it go” Meghan Trainor confidently asserts over a production reminiscient of the wave of early 00’s Bloodshy & Avant-esque R&B/Pop, still retaining her retroness but a complete sonic departure and refreshing overhaul from her debut.
In an interview with Fuse’s Jason Lipshutz, Trainor stated the song is “a big anthem for ladies about telling a dude, ‘Nah, I’m good—I’m out here on my own, and I’m good with it.'” She also said “The scene is me in a club, and the dude comes up to me and I go, ‘No no no. I don’t need your hands all over me. I’m good. I’m gonna dance on my own with my girls.'” Listen to ‘NO’ below:
Meghan Trainor has confirmed musical collaborations with producers, including U.S. Virgin Islands duo Rock City, Ross Golan, Johan Carlsson, The Rascals, Babyface, Taylor Parks and LunchMoney Lewis on her sophomore album ‘Thank You’ which is scheduled for release on May 13, 2016. Talking about her influences for the record to MTV, Trainor said “I wanted to go big, I wanted to get all my influences in there and show everything from my caribbean side to my love for Bruno Mars and Aretha Franklin and even some Elvis vibes, anyone I grew up listening to.”
