Meghan Trainor’s infectious pop hits are amazing when she’s going solo – but IMAGINE how good these collaborations would sound?! Check out 16 stars we’d LOVE the birthday girl to work with.
When Nathan Sykes joined Meghan on stage for an impromptu duet of her song ‘Like I’m Gonna Lose You’, it got the cogs in our brains whirring – if this is how good they sound together as a one off, just IMAGINE what a duet written for the two of them would be like? Brilliant, that’s what.
Meghan has admitted that she recorded a duet called ‘Someday Maybe’ with Mr Styles – but fans have yet to hear this elusive joint track. Meghan previously said she was “worried he was going to hate it” – but it seems our Hazza approved of the song. Now hurry up and let us hear it, guys! Picture: Getty
A Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor collab is looking VERY likely as the two of them have previously talked about working together. Meghan said to Sam, “I was like 'Bro, we're writing together'. He was like, 'I'd love to'”. And that’s how easily it happens in celeb land! Picture: Instagram
Rihanna would be a dream person to collaborate with for a lot of stars – and Meghan is determined to make it happen. She’s already got plans to write for RihRih – but she’s got to fit it in her schedule. Meghan has said, “I want to write for Rihanna but I haven't had a second to do it. When I travel I don't have my rig with me to produce, I should start doing that." Picture: Getty
Meghan supported Jason on his tour last year, and she let slip that se had recorded a dance track with Mr Derulo! She told fans at a Q&A, “I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this, but I’m going to: I just cut a song with Jason Derulo. It’s a duet, and it’s like a dance song, and it’s going to be real cool. I don’t know when it’ll come out – I haven’t even heard it yet.” Picture: Getty
Taylor Swift factors highly on a LOT of stars dream-collaborations-list, and Meghan is no exception – she’d love to make it happen if TayTay is up for it too. Swifty, the ball is in your court now! Picture: Getty
When Ludacris heard that Meghan was interested in working together, he said, “"I heard Meghan Trainor expressed some interest in wanting to work with me, so maybe we can make a great collaboration. It just depends on what the song sounds like." Who’d have thought these two would want to duet?! Picture: AP Photo/Matt Sayles
Meghan's previously said she wants to be the female version of Bruno Mars, but failing that she would love the chance to work with the pint sized pop prince. She said, "I would love to write with him. I think he's a genius. I want to be the girl version of Bruno Mars, I think he's amazing."
Rita's earned the title of being one of Meghan's "favourite people ever" - and as they have so much fun hanging out together, surely spending some time in the studio is the perfect next step, right? Picture: Getty
Meghan and Ed were both on the Billboard Awards performance bill this year, and judging by the fact they were hanging out together a lot, they're at the start of a firm friendship. Could you imagine an Ed Sheeran loop-pedal masterpiece with a Meghan Trainor beat? Sounds like perfection! Picture: Instagram
Ms Trainor makes no secret of the fact she's a fan of Tori Kelly, recently tweeting, "@torikelly new single #nobodylove is FIRE. Ur a queen. I love you tori, huge fan!". With so much mutual loving flying around, it's only a matter of time until these lovely ladies get in the studio together. Picture: Getty
Meghan was rumoured to be dating Nick's assistant a while ago, which means she's in there close enough for him to hook up a collab, right? Nick's BFFs with Demi, so this could be one heck of a three person song these stars could create! Picture: Getty
Kiesza's got the dance moves, Meghan's got the irresistible beats - this is surely a match made in heaven? Both ladies make dance floor filler tunes, imagine what they could cook up if they put their heads together on a joint track? Picture: Getty
We're obsessed with Jessie J's high notes - add a bit of doo-wop flavour and you have a song you'll be playing on loop. Meghan and Jessie would make the ultimate girl-power duo, all of our Saturday night singing-into-a-hairbrush anthems would be sorted for the next few years. Picture: Getty
A Vine star and one of the biggest new acts of the past year working together? Shawn and Meghan's collab would literally have something for everyone - and wouldn't they just look gorgeous on that stage together too? Picture: Getty
He's one of pop's most recognisable artists, but we reckon even Ne-Yo could benefit from the Meghan Trainor magic! Could there be a smooth , sexy tune in the works for these two? We'd LOVE to see it happen. Picture: Instagram
