SINGLE REVIEW: Meghan Trainor – No Excuses
Over the years I have had a love-hate relationship with Meghan Trainor. When she first bursted onto the scene I thought her debut album was a little vanilla at best and that she was extremely overrated. Then fast forward to her sophomore album “Thank You” when she started to win me over with the absolute bangers “No” and “Me Too”. While the album wasn’t perfect it did show a lot of potential and made me a lot more open minded to the songstress. Now she is ready to unleash her third studio album with another anthem that will have you clicking your fingers sassily in someones face. “No Excuses” is the perfect lead single for this new record as it reflects on the realisation she had that we need to have more respect for each other in this world. Definitely in this time of uncertainty and confusion. So it brings together that powerful sentiment with a whole lot of attitude and campy fun. “What you sippin’ on that got you talking crazy? Lookin’ at me sideways, always coming at me”. It blends her soulful pop meets RNB sound that she introduced on her last record and turns it up a notch. From a first listen you will be hooked and ready to hear this on the radio in the car and on the dance floor at the clubs. Welcome back Ms Trainor.
