Meghan Trainor: Title
Ladies and gentlemen: the girl who brought unironic doo-wop into the spotlight. She didn’t get the memo when pastels went out of fashion. She’s not so lean, and she’s a little mean. Her music is almost exclusively in treble notation, but she’s all about that bass. If you haven’t guessed by now, she’s the one, the only, the plus-sized Barbie: Meghan Trainor.
Or, as I like to call her, one-hit wonder.
Trainor’s new album, “Title,” debuted at no. 1 on Billboard 200. Soulful pop has always held a special place in my heart, so I had high hopes going in.
Trainor managed to get one song on my playlist, which is more than I can say about most of the artists I’ve reviewed. The other songs ranged from just okay to horrendous.
