(Mar. 4, 2016 – New York, NY) – Heralding one of 2016’s most eagerly awaited releases, Meghan Trainor’s brand new single “NO”makes its world premiere this morning.
After its radio debut this am on On Air With Ryan Seacrest, the song will be played every hour on the hour today across all iHeart Radio pop formatted stations. This is the very first release from the GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum pop superstar’s mega-anticipated second full-length album, Thank You [Epic Records]— available everywhere on Friday, May 13th, 2016. The album’s online pre-order goes live today and will grant an immediate download of“NO.” Pre-order it HERE.
“NO” shows a different side of the singer altogether, illuminating the expanse and confidence inherent in her powerhouse voice while showing off her songwriting prowess. Strutting between a nineties-style hip-hop bounce and an untouchable and unshakable chorus, it’s a feisty, fiery, and fun anthem that’ll get everybody singing, “NO.” She teamed up with producer Ricky Reed [Jason Derulo, Pitbull, Twenty One Pilots] for the track. Thank You is executive produced by Meghan Trainor and Ricky Reed.
The premiere of “NO” happens just weeks after Meghan’s win at the 2016 GRAMMY® Awards. She received the prestigious “Best New Artist” award, making for her first victory at the ceremony. Next up, she will be profiled on CBS Sunday Morning March 6 for her first sit down TV interview since the GRAMMYS®. Tune in to see an in-depth look at how she became one of today’s most successful singer/songwriters and so much more at 9am-10:30am this Sunday.
On the horizon, she’s nominated for a string of 2016 awards. At the iHeartRadio Music Awards where she will also perform, Meghan is up for “Female Artist of the Year” and “Best Collaboration” for “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” with John Legend. At the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, she received nods for “Favorite Female Singer” and “Favorite Collaboration” for “Like I’m Gonna Lose You.”
Meghan continues to break records, make history, inspire countless fans, and change the landscape of pop music and culture. She began 2016 by winning “Favorite Album” for her chart-dominating RIAA platinum full-length debut, Title [Epic Records], at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards. Last year, Titlenot only bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, but it became the “First #1 full-length debut from a female solo artist in five years.” It stood out as “One of only seven albums to sell over a million copies in 2015.” It also yielded four inescapable multiplatinum Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 smashes—“All About That Bass” (9x-platinum), “Lips Are Movin” (4x-platinum), “Dear Future Husband”(2x-platinum), and “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” [featuring John Legend] (2x-platinum). Title was the#5 most streamed album globally in 2015 and currently has over 900 million streams worldwide. Meghan also has over 2 billion video views on VEVO.
For Meghan Trainor, it all started with “All About That Bass.” The song introduced her to the world, and she became a household name in the process. A bona fide cultural phenomenon “All About That Bass” spent eight weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the “longest-running Hot 100 #1 by an Epic Records artist” and “longest-running Got 100 #1 by a female artist in 2014.” Its influence continued long after its release, scoring “Top Hot 100 Song” and “Top Digital Song” at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards as well as the 2015 ASCAP Pop Music Award for “Most Performed Song.” The breakout hit was nominated for “Song Of The Year” and “Record Of The Year” at the2015 GRAMMY® Awards. In addition, she received three American Music Awards nominations and three Teen Choice Awards nominations. An explosive performer, her headlining MTrain Tour packed venues across the U.S. during the summer in 2015.
Now, she returns with Thank You.
