Trainor’s throwback pop sound is as refreshing as her cheeky advocacy for issues tied to body image and female empowerment. There’s no guilt in this pleasure.
Recently I bought Trainor’s album, Title, after my younger daughter asked me to download several of her songs. I figured I might as well spend the extra few bucks to get the whole record.
And while ‘Bass’ still doesn’t tickle my fancy the way it does for some, I am sufficiently impressed by the rest of the album to say one of its tracks might have made my best-of cut had I bought it sooner.
This gives Trainor two songs in the top eight, quite the accomplishment for a woman who was completely unknown at this time last year.
Now she’s one of the biggest pop stars in the world. Wonder if that will still be true a year from now.
I think it’s safe to say women rule the musical world.
Also interesting: Two of the top three songs in the land are celebrations of women with big asses. That must be a first.
