They scoffed when she entered and won. But, when she hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, heard her Multi-Platinum selling song on the
radio, they were left completely stunned and speechless. The entrants of
IAMA (International Acoustic Music Awards) were surprised and even angry
when a 16 year old girl won 4 years ago, completely unaware of the
incredible success she was going to achieve.

Meghan Trainor has stunned the entrants, winners, judges of IAMA
(International Acoustic Music Awards) and now the music world. An
incredible success for a debut artist and a music awards entrant. “IAMA is
so proud to announce that Meghan Trainor is currently the most successful
artist so far in the history of the International Acoustic Music Awards.
What her hit song has achieved is so incredible for any music artist, even
a superstar like Madonna would love to have”, said Jessica Brandon, artist
relations of IAMA. IAMA has been around since 2004.

If you have been listening to Top 40 radio, you wouldn’t have missed her
song. However, few people know that Meghan Trainor was discovered by IAMA
(International Acoustic Music Awards) and she won Best Female Artist in
the 6th Annual IAMA (International Accoustic Music Awards) in 2010 when
she was just 16 years old with her songs performed in acoustic format. She
is the most successful artist IAMA has to date.

BEATING SUPERSTAR TAYLOR SWIFT
Meghan Trainor has been #1 for the past 5 consecutive weeks since
September 10th.  “All About That Bass” debuted at #84 with a meteoric rise
to the top. The pop newcomer’s debut hit dethrones superstar Taylor
Swift’s song ‘Shake It Off’ after Taylor Swift spent two weeks on top.
Also, beating superstars such as Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj is an
amazing feat that most music acts dream about. She also beat Iggy Azalea.

Other highlights of Trainor’s Hot 100 coronation: “Bass” is the second
debut No. 1 by a lead female artist this year, following Iggy Azalea’s
seven-week reign with “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX.

INTERNATIONAL HIT & GOING MULTI-PLATINUM
It is now also an international #1 hit, topped the charts in other
countries such as Australia, Canada, Austria, Denmark, Ireland, New
Zealand and more. Her album “Title” debuted #15 on the Billboard Album
charts. The song has become phenomenally successful selling over 4.2
million copies worldwide at press time (Double Platinum in United States
alone). Her music video has over 112 million views at press time.

This is an incredible fairytale story that most music acts dream about:
hitting #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts. Hitting #1 on Hot 100 charts
is equivalent to climbing to the peak of Mount Everest. However, only less
than 1% of all music acts will ever achieve this glory.

“Bass” also brings acclaim to Trainor’s label, Epic. It’s Epic’s first Hot
100 leader since Sean Kingston’s fellow debut hit “Beautiful Girls” in
2007 (which Koch co-promoted with Epic). “Bass” is Epic’s first No. 1 by a
woman since Shakira’s own ode to seductive shaking, “Hips Don’t Lie,” in
2006. The last lead female artist on Epic to take a debut hit to the top
of the Hot 100? Minnie Riperton, whose soul classic “Lovin’ You” led the
April 5, 1975 list. (The late Riperton’s daughter is actress Maya
Rudolph.)

Trainor additionally makes her home state proud, joining other
Massachusetts-born acts that have led the Hot 100, including Donna Summer,
Bobby Brown, Aerosmith, Extreme and New Kids on the Block. (The latter
group reigned 25 years ago this week with “Hangin’ Tough.”)

She has written two songs for Rascal Flatts’ Rewind album with Jesse
Fraser and Shay Mooney. She has been performing her hits song “live” on
most national TV shows such as “The Today Show”, “Tonight Show”, “Ellen
DeGeneres Show” and more.

WITH JOHN LEGEND
Meghan Trainor is one in-demand artist at the moment, which isn’t
surprising since her hit “All About That Bass” is sitting pretty at #1 on
top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Meghan Trainor is‘Freaking Out’
because she Has John Legend On Her Album.

From Nantucket, Massachusetts, She wrote “All About That Bass” this year
with hit Grammy Award-nominated songwriter and producer Kevin Kadish. Her
publishing company told her that many artists might be interested in
recording the song. Music mogul L.A. Reid heard Trainor’s demo of the song
and signed her to Epic Records, where she was able to release the song as
a solo artist.
