13. Meghan Trainor's 'All About That Bass' was turned down by Adele & Beyonce.
It was the hit that made Meghan a household name but before she recorded it herself, she offered the track up to Adele and Bey. She revealed, "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." (Pictures: YouTube/Getty)
