Meghan Trainor’s ‘Treat Myself’ Album Release set for January 25th
The lead single from Trainor’s third major-label studio album, Treat Myself (2019), called “No Excuses”, was released in March 2018, and peaked at number 46 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album was further supported by the singles “Let You Be Right” and “Can’t Dance”. Prominently influenced by the 1950s and 1960s eras in music, Trainor’s music has been noted for its retro style aesthetic. Common themes in her lyrics include subjects of modern womanhood, body image, and empowerment.
Meghan Elizabeth Trainor is an American singer-songwriter. Trainor was interested in music from a young age, and wrote, recorded, performed, and produced three independently-released albums between ages 15 and 17.

It appeared on Trainor’s debut EP, Title, which was released later in the year.
Along with “All About That Bass”, Trainor’s debut major-label studio album, Title (2015), was supported by three singles: “Lips Are Movin”, “Dear Future Husband” and “Like I’m Gonna Lose You”, all of which peaked in the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 and received multi-platinum certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) . Her second major-label studio album, Thank You (2016), spawned the singles: “No”, “Me Too”, and “Better”, the former two of which peaked in the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 and received double platinum certifications from the RIAA. In December 2017, Trainor became engaged to American actor Daryl Sabara.
