About All About That Bass

"All About That Bass" is the debut single by American singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor, released on June 30, 2014 through Epic Records. The song was included on Trainor's first EP, Title (2014), and first major-label studio album, also named Title (2015). It was written by Trainor and Kevin Kadish, and was produced by Kadish. "All About That Bass" combines bubblegum pop, doo-wop and retro-R&B genres, and incorporates elements from 1960s music. Lyrically, Trainor intended the song to promote positive body image and self-acceptance. The song was noted for discussing "booty" as part of physical attractiveness. Critical reaction to "All About That Bass" was mixed: some publications named it one of the best songs of 2014, while others called it a novelty song and opined that it failed to promote positive body image as it intended to. The song was nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. In the US, "All About That Bass" spent eight weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It also topped the charts in various countries including Australia, Canada, and the UK, and was the fourth best-selling song of 2014 with sales of 11 million copies worldwide.

Because you know I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass

Yeah it's pretty clear, I ain't no size two
But I can shake it, shake it like I'm supposed to do
'Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
All the right junk in all the right places
I see the magazines working that photoshop
We know that shit ain't real
Come on now, make it stop
If you got beauty beauty just raise 'em up
'Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top
Yeah, my momma she told me don't worry about your size
She says, boys they like a little more booty to hold at night
You know I won't be no stick-figure, silicone Barbie doll
So, if that's what's you're into
Then go ahead and move along

Because you know I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass

I'm bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches hey
No, I'm just playing I know you think you're fat
But I'm here to tell you
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top
Yeah, my momma she told me don't worry about your size
She says, boys they like a little more booty to hold at night
You know I won't be no stick-figure, silicone Barbie doll

So, if that's what's you're into
Then go ahead and move along

Because you know I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass

Because you know I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass

Because you know I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass
