    I know I’m probably in the minority here, but I liked the singles of Meghan Trainor’s debut. I thought they had a fun retro kick to them that made them stand out on radio against the generic backbeats ever present on other singles.

    Well, I heard her new single “No” on the radio Friday. First, the sound is VERY different than her debut. Second, I hated this song. It sounds like something Mya would have rejected back in 2000-01.

    Now my tastes and my best friend’s tastes regarding music can often differ so he listened and he agreed with me.

    Anyone heard it yet? What do you think? Here’s an article about the new single & album: http://www.fuse.tv/2016/03/meghan-trainor-no-ricky-reed-producer-interview

    This single seems tailor made to fit in with the styles of the Bieber and Selena songs on the radio (which of course I don’t like haha. I’m such an old fogey).

    I forgot that Meghan Trainor was a thing that existed.

    The song kinda sucks, but you know it’s going to be catapulted to the Top 10 in the next month or so.

    I dont hated it, but it’s definitely quite dated… It sounds like something out of P!nks debut album when she was going for the pop/r&b-ish sound that was popular in the turn of the century. I’m sure it will grow on me once radio starts overplaying it lol

    I wasn’t a huge fan of her debut besides a couple of singles (Like I’m Gonna Lose You and Lips Are Movin) but I really like this a lot. I sort of like that it sounds like songs from a decade ago as I liked that sort of music at the time.

    I like Meghan Trainor. She’s a talented girl. Her debut was solid, and anyone who hates on her is ridiculous. Listen to her debut album and get back to me. That being said, I’m not a fan of “No”. It’s too all over the place. That being said, it looks like it’s a total hit. It’s settled into the iTunes top 10, and the video isn’t even out yet and she hasn’t done performances of it yet.
    This girl ain’t going anywhere.

    I just find it funny that people bash her, when she can sing, and she writes hit songs. That’s a lot more that you can say about a lot of popstars.

    And Graeme, that’s why I really liked her singles from her debut. They were fun, well sung, and well crafted and set her apart from the Selena Gomez types. No is just no, I mean she tries to semi-rap? I just hate that she’s doing a full 180 from her debut. I can understand wanting to grow and branch out, but why do it so drastically?

    Meghan hate is so tired and old. Her debut was excellent, and she earned Best New Artist. Not so sure about “No.” The retro vibe is what pulls me in, and that’s taking a back seat here. But this is another kind of “old is new again,” I guess with this early 2000s vibe. Hmmm.

    How is this should-have-been one-hit-wonder still this relevant and the amazing Carly Rae Jepsen is basically completely off of pop cultures radar?

    That being said this new song is terrible. At least the sound from her debut was mildly interesting and catchy in a fun retro way because there wasn’t much like it on the airwaves.

    I don’t mind when artists borrow sounds from different eras, but while Taylor Swift and Carly Rae Jepsen added their signature flare to it, Meghan’s songs always come across as half-baked and mixed with cultural appropriation.
