Meghan Trainor is taking aim at sexism with her new single.
The funky, retro “No Excuses” showcases the singer’s trademark wit and attitude and the accompanying music video is popping with colour.
“Why you acting like you never met a lady / I don’t disrespect you / Don’t you disrespect me,” she sings. “Your mama raised you better than that.”
Trainor, 24, released the new single on Thursday — her first release as a lead artist since “Me Too” from 2016’s platinum-certified album Thank You. She did, however, perform the promotional single “I’m a Lady” from Smurfs: The Lost Villiage in 2017.
The Grammy winner talked to People about “No Excuses” and her upcoming third studio album slated for a 2018 release.
“This was one of the last songs I wrote for this entire album, and it was just a personal experience I had,” she revealed.
“It’s everything I hoped for,” Trainor said of her upcoming album. “We worked so hard on it, and I’m freaking out; I can’t wait any longer for the world to hear it!”
When the parallels were made between Trainor’s lyrics in “No Excuses” and the Me Too/Time’s Up movements, Trainor simply replied: “Exactly.”
