"All About That Bass" is the debut single of American singer-songwriter
Meghan Trainor (pictured), released through Epic Records on June 30,
2014. The song was included on Trainor's first extended play (EP) Title
(2014) and her studio album of the same name (2015). Written by Trainor
and producer Kevin Kadish, "All About That Bass" is a bubblegum pop,
doo-wop and hip hop track. Trainor, who struggled with her negative body
image as a teenager, was inspired to write the song to promote self-
acceptance. Some music critics praised the song's production and
memorable message, while others called it a novelty song and criticized
the failure of its lyrics to empower all body types. The song was
nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the 57th Annual
Grammy Awards. It was the best-selling song in the United States by a
female artist during the 2010s, and was certified Diamond by the
Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
