- Meghan Trainor Premieres New Song “No Excuses”
- American singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor is back. She premiered a new song “No Excuses” with a accompanying music video.
The song is its first single in two years since "Me Too". It was written by Jacob Kasher, Andrew Wells & Meghan Trainor.
Back in January, she unveiled the new song title on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The track is the first taste from her upcoming third album. The video was directed by Colin Tilley, who recently created Iggy Azalea's new song video for “Savior”.
Sh will perform the song live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on March 2 and on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon later.
About the song, she told People in an interview;
"This was one of the last songs I wrote for this entire album, and it was just a personal experience I had. It just reminded me we need more respect in the world, and we need more respect for each other at every age. As a 24-year-old woman talking to older people who have been in the business for longer than I have been, I’m just confused: How are you not respectful in this situation right now? I have little cousins in school and I hear their stories, and I’m like, 'Oh, you’re supposed to treat others the way you want to be treated.' And I think we’re losing that a little. Especially right now."
The 24-year-old singer said on statement;
The single tempers swaggering bass lines, bright guitars, and widescreen synths with an instantly infectious call-and-response. The boisterous production underscores a deeper message encoded in the hook, “Your mama raised you better than that.
“I love how so many women are standing up for what’s right. I wanted to write us all a powerful anthem. Sometimes, people talk down to me, because I’ve only been doing this for four years, so I wrote this song. It’s my modern version of ‘R-E-S-P-E-C-T.’ It’s all about equality and being kind.”
