Meghan Trainor - Takin' It Back (A Music Review)

Meghan Trainor – Takin’ It Back (Epic)

Since her debut single “All About That Bass” struck the airwaves in 2014, Meghan Trainor has been a hit. Meghan was born in Massachusetts in 1993, going on to independently record and release acoustic various albums before writing songs for other performers starting in 2013.

In 2014, Meghan signed with Epic Records and released “All About That Bass” – the song that made her a household name. She has gone on to release four studio albums and will be releasing her fifth titled Takin’ It Back on October 21st, 2022!

I was lucky enough to listen to the album cover to cover and loved every song, minute, and note!

Takin’ It Back is the perfect album for anyone who has recently gone through a breakup or simply needs a boost of confidence. Meghan’s lyrics mixed with the uplifting and pop-centered instrumentals blend perfectly to create everyone’s next getting-ready-for-a-girls’-night-out playlist.

The album is filled to the brim with everything from empowering anthems to romantic ballads, and even some catchy club songs. There is absolutely something for everyone on Takin’ It Back and I stand by that!

I’m also excited to see if this album release leads to an upcoming tour because these songs were clearly written to be performed, as they both invoke emotion and have lots of music layers to them – from melodic horn sections to even an acapella track. Meghan’s versatility as an artist is what makes her the brilliant artist that she is because fans never fully know what to expect next from her.

The album touches on the themes of healing, nostalgia, positivity, empowerment, self-awareness, and self-love. Another theme touched on is the harsh reality of social media, and that life isn’t all sunshine and roses, but you can learn to navigate and block out all of the noise.

Meghan’s retro musical influences are very apparent, setting the vibe and making the album that much catchier. I believe Takin’ It Back will be another milestone in Meghan’s career, soon to become an instant classic!

Make sure to check out Takin’ It Back on October 21st, streaming on all platforms and available for purchase at retailers near you!
