Meghan Trainor is back! The singer’s second album, ‘Thank You,’ is everything fans have been waiting for, providing an epic mix of Meghan’s classic girl-power anthems and some incredible new tracks that are sure to please. Read our review right here!
We knew Meghan Trainor was confident when she all about that bass, but her newest album took that to a whole new level! Thank You doesn’t just show off the multiple styles of music the 22-year-old singer is capable of making, but it tells the world that while bass may have kickstarted Meghan’s career, it’s her talent that has made her a pop music mainstay!
Meghan released several songs prior to dropping the entire album, giving fans a little taste of what they could expect with classic Trainor songs like “Me Too” and “Better.” Those tracks, along with the I-don’t-need-you single, “No,” are filled with the same confidence that the brought with her debut single, which will surely make any Meghan fan happy. And as you listen to Thank You, you’ll realize that it’s not just the pre-released tracks that ooze with pride — songs like “Woman Up” and “Watch Me Do” offer tons of it. Heck, there’s even a song called “I Love Me”!
But while several of the tracks on Thank You are what fans have come to expect from her music, Meghan provides some awfully pleasant surprises too. Sure, Meghan’s poppy, confidence-boosting songs have become her staple, but it’s really the ballady tracks that stand out on this album.
For example, “Kindly Calm Me Down” strips away the poppy beats, allowing Meghan to show her range. And even amidst those “who needs a man” type songs, Meghan displays a little bit of her softer side on not one, but two love songs: “Hopeless Romantic” and “Just A Friend To You.”
That being said, there’s still plenty of fun, danceable tracks on Thank You like “I Won’t Let You Down,” “Dance Like Yo Daddy,” and the title track, “Thank You,” that make for a perfect balance of fast and slow. Plus, she sticks to her popified big band/doo-wop vibe that she introduced to us on her first record, Title, along with her unique combination of rapping and singing. Frankly, this album practically shows that there’s not really anything Meghan can’t do!
Perhaps Meghan’s versatility is what makes this album such a great collection of songs. The 15 tracks on the record try a little bit of everything and manages to please the ear on all fronts. She obviously loves her anthemic divalicious tunes, but Meghan really proves herself as more than the girl who’s “All About That Bass” on Thank You!
