No Excuses gives audiences a stellar insight into the international superstar's forthcoming album set to be released later this year. Already titled as one of 2018's most anticipated blockbuster releases, No Excuses perfectly sets the excitement through the song's lyrical and vocal empowerment, firmly establishing itself as a fresh pop anthem.
"I love how so many women are standing up for what's right," says Trainor. "I wanted to write us all a powerful anthem. Sometimes, people talk down to me, because I've only been doing this for four years, so I wrote this song. It's my modern version of 'R-E-S-P-E-C-T.' It's all about equality and being kind."
Trainor wrote No Excuses with songwriter JKash and Andrew Wells. The song is produced by Andrew Wells, with additional production by Trainor herself. The single tempers swaggering bass lines, bright guitars, and widescreen synths with an instantly infectious call-and-response. The boisterous production underscores a deeper message encoded in the hook, "Your mama raised you better than that."
To complement this upbeat release, Trainor has also shared the official music video, shot by Colin Tilley. The high-energy visual brings the lyrics to life, as the songstress owns the screen more confident and charismatic than ever. Watch it now.
If happiness had a soundtrack, it would be Trainor's upcoming album. The singer has triumphantly emerged from a terrifying second vocal cord surgery, four months without speaking, and debilitating anxiety, into a fiery and focused force of nature. Empowering herself through self-love and care, she bottles this energy within new music. Recorded primarily with producer Wells, it would be a family affair. On every anthem, she enlisted a choir, comprised of her mum, dad, brothers, and fiancé for backing vocals. The record is undoubtedly Trainor's biggest, brightest, and best body of work to date.
Stay tuned for more from Meghan Trainor very soon.
