Trainor wrote ‘NO EXCUSES’ with songwriter JKash and Andrew Wells. The song is produced by Andrew Wells with additional production by the artist herself. 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,” says Trainor. “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.”
Complementing this upbeat and undeniable anthem, she also shared the single’s official music video, shot by Colin Tilley. The high-energy visual brings the words to life as the songstress owns the screen more confident and charismatic than ever.
If happiness had a soundtrack, it would be this album. Trainor triumphantly emerged from a terrifying second vocal cord surgery, four months without speaking, and debilitating anxiety into a fiery and focused force of nature. Empowering herself through self-love and care, she bottles that energy within new music. Recorded primarily with producer Wells, it would be a family affair. On every anthem, she enlisted a choir-comprised of her mom, dad, brothers, and fiancé-to add backing vocals. It’s undoubtedly her biggest, brightest, and best body of work to date.
She is one of only five female artists to receive a diamond certification for her hit single “All About That Bass” which shares the RIAA Gold & Platinum Awards top honor with only 15 other singles in history. Earlier this year, Meghan wrapped up her first season as a panelist on FOX’s hit singing competition series THE FOUR: Battle for Stardom.
