(Sep. 15, 2016 – New York, NY) – GRAMMY Award-winning multiplatinum pop superstar Meghan Trainor debuts the music video for her new single “Better”[featuring Yo Gotti] on VEVO today. Watch it above. Yesterday, Entertainment Tonight offered up an exclusive first look at the cinematic visual starring Meghan, Yo Gotti, and EMMY Award-, Golden Globe Award-, and GRAMMY Award-winning screen icon Beau Bridges as the singer’s grandfather.
Directed by Tim Mattia [Chris Stapleton, Troye Sivan], the clip plays out like a mini-movie highlighted by a tearful and heart-wrenching narrative that vividly brings the song’s lyrics to life. Representing another evolution, it’s the latest release from Meghan’s blockbuster second full-length, gold-certified album, Thank You [Epic Records].
Extending Meghan’s pop dominance, Thank You recently achieved an RIAA Gold certification, while its first two singles “NO” and “Me Too” each received RIAA Platinum certifications. Her 2015 debut Title is now triple-platinum. To date, every single Meghan has released as an artist or featured on has gone platinum.
This summer has been the hottest yet for Meghan. She’s on the home stretch of her sold-out “The Untouchable Tour,” which just packed two nights at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and continues to garner rave reviews. Entertainment Weekly wrote, “Since breaking out with her girl-power anthem ‘All About That Bass’ in 2014 and scoring a GRAMMY for ‘Best New Artist’ in 2016, Trainor has shown herself to be one of pop’s most likable and seemingly down-to-earth stars, one who’s also accrued a devoted fan base of young female fans,” while Seattle Times claimed, “Meghan Trainor burned down a sold-out WaMu Theater on Saturday night and proved that at just 22, she has the elusive combination of talent and personality to become pop’s next megastar.”Idolator said, “The Grammy-winning ‘No’ singer for a night encouraged self-love, empowerment and vintage girl power to a sold out crowd of Megatrons,” and Chicago Tribune recalled, “It was a positive experience from start to finish.”
“The Untouchable Tour” comes to a close in her hometown of Boston, MA at Blue Hills Bank Pavilion on September 24.
