Mehgan Trainor’s first tour entitled, That Bass Tour, was hugely successful and critically acclaimed. About the tour, Billboard claimed, “Trainor stretched her set in ways that felt authentic,” while The Hollywood Reporter wrote, “The lifelong performer took advantage of the venue’s intimacy while also seizing the opportunity to serve a spectacle.” The Chicago Tribune said, “After a year that set the 21-year-old on an unexpected Pop star path, Trainor hit the stage in Chicago and showed that she had the verve and talent to justify her rise,” The Washington Post added, “Trainor’s voice sparkled almost as much as the bejeweled mike she poured it into,” and The OC Register claimed, “Her brand of Doo-Wop and Bubble Gum Pop, infused with bits of Funk and Hip-Hop, coupled with a sassy attitude and lyrics about female empowerment, have quickly made her a star.”
As soon as Title became available, it vaulted to the top of dozens of charts worldwide. With first-week sales of 237,511 units in total music consumption (albums/singles/streaming), the album ranks as the biggest-selling debut for a female artist’s first full-length album in more than five years; and the biggest-selling debut for a solo artist’s first full-length album in more than three years. Title has dominated iTunes Overall and Pop album charts in the U.S. at #1 since its release on January 13th, with #1 peaks reported from 67 countries worldwide.
Early critical reaction to Title was unanimously positive, with Rolling Stone magazine hailing Meghan’s “sass and self-empowerment,” and People proclaiming “she’s an It girl with staying power.” The New York Times profiled Meghan with references to Amy Winehouse and Adele; while Entertainment Weekly awarded the Title album an A-, declaring “right now, no Pop star is better than this 21-year-old singer, songwriter and producer at playing the sassy best friend.” Billboard summed up, “You can’t miss this young artist’s skill with melodic and rhythmic hooks…along with her fluid, flexible voice.”
“All About That Bass” is a juggernaut in and of itself. Meghan’s phenomenal two-time Grammy®-nominated debut single spent eight weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has been certified 6-times RIAA platinum in the U.S. alone.
