Meghan Trainor is returning to her roots…
While the American singer-songwriter is known for her hit songs “All About That Bass” and “Made You Look” now, she once made money as a songwriter. Her songs were deemed “too cheesy and poppy” for singers like Rihanna, but they were perfect for K-Pop artists.
It’s not until now that Meghan Trainor has revealed any personal info regarding which K-Pop artists took her songs. Recently, K-Pop girl group (G)I-DLE worked with her for the English EP HEAT.
Both Meghan and her brother, Ryan Trainor, are created on (G)I-DLE’s song “Eyes Roll.” So, they talked about the group on the recent episode of their podcast Workin’ On It with Meghan Trainor & Ryan Trainor.
Meghan Trainor revealed that she delved into (G)I-DLE when they obtained “Eyes Roll.” She became curious, and the more she learned, the more she became a fan.
