Did you know Kevin Kadish and Meghan Trainor co-wrote “All About That Bass” in 2013?  I bet you didn’t know how many record labels declined to record the song with their artists,  what to do?

Record the song yourself!!!

Exactly what Meghan Trainor did and played it to L.A Reid chairman at Epic Records, Meghan performed the song on a ukulele.

Named the “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” by the Music Business Association in 2014.  Other achievements included the 21st woman to land her debut single at the top of the Billboard Hot 100. Being only the fifth female artist to follow up her chart-topping debut single with another top 5 release.

In 2015 the Billboard Year-End charts listed Meghan seventh on Top Artists and second on Top Female Artists. The rest is history.

Meghan is a regular in the UK Charts and currently on tour with her show The Untouchable Tour.
