Meghan Trainor

She bagged a number one with ‘All About That Bass’, but Meghan Trainor admits she first offered it to Beyonce and Adele but they turned it down!

It’s the anthem for gorgeous curvalicious ladies everywhere, but Meghan Trainor admits she almost gave the song away – but Beyonce and Adele turned down the chance to record ‘All About That Bass’!

Meghan told The Guardian that she offered her number one hit to a selection of artists, but none of them were quite right for the track.

She explained, “Some artists get thousands of songs pitched and they never know, so Beyoncé herself probably never heard it.” 

"There weren't any singers at the time [who fit the song]. Adele was the only one, but she wasn't rapping and singing sassy songs with swears in them."

Bet Meghan’s glad she kept the song now – it’s the current Big Top 40 number one!
