EDITORS’ NOTES

“I might be young, but I ain’t stupid,” sings Meghan Trainor on the brassy “Lips Are Movin.” We knew that already: the sharp-witted lyrics and bubbly hook of “All About That Bass” made the singer one of pop’s most exciting newcomers of 2014. Trainor’s debut album, Title, is a parade of lovable, bobble-headed pop. Tunes with a future-‘50s feel (like the smart-alecky “Dear Future Husband” and the John Legend duet “Like I’m Gonna Lose You”) shimmer alongside playful fusions of R&B, hip-hop, and dancehall (“Mr. Almost,” “Walkashame”). The hooks are undeniable and almost uniformly uptempo, but when Trainor slows down to croon along with a string section on “What If I,” the firebrand phenom channels the heartbreak of vintage Etta James.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Love it, but younger listeners need to be careful... 😳

I love All About That Bass, Dear Future Husband, and Lips Are Movin in this album, but younger listeners should not listen to the song called Title, only because it is slightly inappropriate (I recommend nobody under 13, possibly even 14 or 15, listen to it, once I heard the signal that it was bad, I shut the sample off. Note to self; The kindle sample is much better for that song. Other than that, loved it! Four stars!!!

Should have an “explicit” label somewhere

Some songs have cuss words in it. My daughter is 6, loves the musicality of her stuff but it’s not edited like radio versions. Just wasted a few bucks on something she can’t listen to.

Finally a real artist I love your music and something about you reminds me of Toni Braxton?? I don't know what but be careful don't let them rip you off and get bankrupt..
