Yes, it made its way onto the web a few days before (as is wont to happen with songs in this day in age), but Meghan Trainor’s newest single, “Lips Are Movin,” officially premiered on MTV.com on Wednesday. The track, which will be on her to-be-released full-length album, didn't show up unaccompanied: The single art for "Lips Are Movin" also made its debut. The artwork keeps things nice and chill: The “All About That Bass” singer poses in front of an all-white backdrop while wearing a black and white lip print sweater (no, the lips on the sweater are not moving), white sunglasses, and a low ponytail. (Is it just me, or does her hair look like literal silk? I gotta know her haircare secrets.)
Oh. Wait. I almost forgot about the 13 giant pink spots that were thrown into the mix.
When I saw a small thumbnail of the “Lips Are Movin” single art, I figured those pink polka dots were lipstick prints. Because the song is about moving lips. Lipstick prints would make sense. Alas, the pink dots are not lipstick prints. They are just a bunch of pink dots. Eh, sure! Why not! Looks good!
The longer I looked at it, the more I realized that the single art happens to remind me of a few different things. Here's what the “Lips Are Movin” artwork looks like:
A pink iPhone 5C with a white case
Willy Wonka’s Wonka Vision room from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
The pink polka dots and the black lip print on the sweater totes look like the the Wonka Vision teleportation sprinkles.
Willy Wonka’s Wonka Vision glasses from Charlie & the Chocolate Factory
Her sunglasses are very '05 Wonka.
The Victoria's Secret PINK Line
These Keds x Kate Spade Shoes
They're black and white and pink all over!
OK, I realize this Furby is grey, pink, and black. BUT! What if it was white instead of grey? PERFECTION. Ack, I know it's a bit of a stretch but I love Furbies. So I included it regardless.
Fine, fine. The cover art doesn't look like that Furby. Dangit. [Kicks a pile of pebbles.] I really, really wanted to make that one work.
