Meghan Trainor Says L.A. Reid Fueled Her New Single 'No'

Meghan Trainor Says L.A. Reid Fueled Her New Single 'No'

Meghan Trainor is sharing the full story behind her new single “No” with Fabulous mag.

In the new issue of the glossy, the 22-year-old singer also dished on her body image and crying after she won her Best New Artist Grammy. Check it:

On her recent Grammy win: “It feels so unreal, as though I’m watching a movie. I have ‘pinch me’ moments every day: singing with Lionel Richie – I’m like: ‘Why am I here?’ – meeting my idols, or being interviewed for the cover of Fabulous magazine. Me? The cover? When they called my name, I didn’t believe it at all. Then my dad set me off crying. Throughout my whole career, either as a songwriter or artist, I’d ask him: ‘Did I make it yet, Dad?’”

On how her single “No” was born: “I was pissed off with LA Reid [her boss]. I love him so much, but after I gave him the new album, he sat me down and told me I didn’t have a single. I said: ‘Yes I do! I have nine singles.’ He said: ‘But you don’t have a bullet yet.’ So I went into the studio and said: ‘I’m pissedd off, I want a big angry song!’ And it turned into a girl power anthem. I wrote it in one sitting and when I took it back to LA Reid, he played it 29 times that night.”

On being happy with her body image: “I didn’t set out to be at the forefront of this ‘campaign’, but if it’s working, I’ll do it. It’s a big responsibility. But the feedback I get from fans who used to hate their bodies or feel so insecure that they didn’t leave the house makes it totally worthwhile.”
