Meghan Trainor continues to break records, make history, inspire countless fans, and change the landscape of pop music and culture. She began 2016 by winning “Best New Artist” at the GRAMMY® Awards and “Favorite Album” for her chart-dominating RIAA platinum full-length debut, Title [Epic Records], at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards. Last year, Title not only bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, but it became the “First #1 full-length debut from a female solo artist in five years.” It stood out as “One of only seven albums to sell over a million copies in 2015.” It also yielded four inescapable multiplatinum Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 smashes—“All About That Bass” (9x-platinum), “Lips Are Movin” (4x-platinum),“Dear Future Husband” (2x-platinum), and “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” [featuring John Legend] (2x-platinum). Title was the #5 most streamed album globally in 2015 and currently has over 900 million streams worldwide. Meghan also has over 2 billion video views on VEVO.
For Meghan Trainor, it all started with “All About That Bass.” The song introduced her to the world, and she became a household name in the process. A bona fide cultural phenomenon “All About That Bass” spent eight weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the “longest-running Hot 100 #1 by an Epic Records artist” and “longest-running Hot 100 #1 by a female artist in 2014.” Its influence continued long after its release, scoring “Top Hot 100 Song” and “Top Digital Song” at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards as well as the 2015 ASCAP Pop Music Award for “Most Performed Song.” The breakout hit was nominated for “Song Of The Year” and “Record Of The Year” at the 2015 GRAMMY® Awards. She received three American Music Awards nominations and three Teen Choice Awards nominations. An explosive performer, her headlining MTrain Tour packed venues across the U.S. during the summer in 2015.
