SINGLE REVIEW: Meghan Trainor – No

NO

I was ready to say a lot of “No” and throw some serious shade towards Meghan Trainors for this review but what am I supposed to do when the track is actually really good? Yep, I have a serious problem on my hands. I never thought I would say that I liked a Meghan Trainor song but here we are. This throwback empowerment track gives you serious Destiny Child and early 2000 RNB/pop vibes and will have you re-adding your favourite Ciara, Amerie, JOJO, Ashanti and Sugababes songs to your weekend playlists. She still attempts to add her doo-woop sound with an irrelevant intro which is totally forgotten once she hits you with the hook. “Nah to the ah to the no, no, no. My name is no, my sign is no, my number is no, you need to let it go”. The production is so on point and the only thing I don’t like about the track is that it’s her. If it was any other artist I would be stanning so hard but her debut tragedy that somehow received a Grammy cannot be forgotten. But if you see me bopping on the streets in the next week I’m probably listening to this song trying to hide my shame and also unleash my independent woman side at the time. In all seriousness though this is a very interesting, bold and feisty new sound for Meghan Trainor and if she keeps redeeming herself with bangers like this then I may able to forgive her for “Title”.
