Meghan Trainor's "Take Me There" Showcases A Different Side Of The "All About That Bass" Singer — LISTEN
Calling all Megatronz: On Monday, a new Meghan Trainor song called "Take Me There" hit the web, and it showcases a different side of the 21-year-old pop star. On the bright, ukulele-filled track, Trainor ditches the retro sound of "All About That Bass" and "Lips Are Movin'" in favor of a much lighter, almost beach-y vibe — similar to artists like Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, and Colbie Caillat. For the most part, it works! Lyrically, it's not the singer's strongest effort to date, but it's still an enjoyable listen (and it's perfect for the arrival of spring).
On the first verse and pre-chorus, Trainor sings:
We ain't got a reason to get out of bed
Just going through life, not living yet
We need motivation, and no more regret
'Cause we can still dream, let's not forget
But I know, I know, I know how to ease your mind, whoa-oh-oh
Let go, let go, leave all this s--t behind
When the chorus arrives, "Take Me There" really takes off:
Let's make the most of this moonlight
Let's raise 'em up, 'cause there might never be a chance like this, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Let's run away to the West Coast
Don't hesitate, 'cause there won't ever be a chance like this
Hey, you know I wanna be there
Come on and take me there
You know I wanna be there
Unfortunately, there's no word yet on where "Take Me There" came from. Is it a leftover from Trainor's debut album, Title? Is it a demo she wrote for another artist? Or is it intended for a new project of her own? At this point, your guess is as good as mine. Regardless, her fans should eat the adorable track up.
Title is available everywhere now.
