SINGLE REVIEW: Meghan Trainor – Can’t Dance & Let You Be Right
Meghan Trainor is ready to prove herself as a real pop contender with her forthcoming third studio album which is shaping up to be a collection of groovy tracks. The “All About That Bass” songstress has noticeably grown since her debut and has injected a sexy and mature RNB-pop sound to her delivery. “No Excuses” further explored the sound her sophomore record introduced and for her next two singles she’s heading towards a more disco tinged direction. “Let You Be Right” is the clear standout of the two singles with it’s groovy beat that drives the whole song. It’s about stepping down from a fight with a loved one in fear that you may lose them and it has some cool quotable moments. “I don’t wanna fight tonight, I’ma let you be right”. Whilst the song is quite serious it does have a vibrant feel thanks to the production. It’s very disco inspired and will instantly have you wanting to throw on some roller-skates and hit up a skate rink. On the other hand “Can’t Dance” leans towards her old RNB sound with the addition of a groovy baseline. Her vocals have grown A LOT since her debut and this song in particular does show her delivering some impressive vocal runs. It has the potential to be really good live but in comparison to “Let You Be Right” it’s just a little forgettable and annoying. It has a gimmicky delivery that I’m just a little bit over hearing from her. But otherwise this is a very exciting and promising continuation which could see this upcoming album being her best yet.
