Meghan Trainor has hopped on Kanye West’s unabashedly confident bandwagon. On her saucy new single, “I Love Me,” released Friday, the pop star teams with Lunchmoney Lewis for a swinging ode to self-love.
“I don’t mean to brag, I don’t mean to boast. I love all ya’ll, but I love me the most,” Trainor proclaims over a snap-happy groove. The track follows a string of sassy singles from the “All About That Bass” singer, who previously shared the boy-banishing “No” and hater send-off “Watch Me Do” from her forthcoming sophomore LP, Thank You, due out May 13.
“People told me, ‘Don’t do what they expect,’” Trainor told EW of the record in March. “I’ve put some doo-wop on it. And Ricky Reed and Jay Cash and some other writers helped me unlock this world of funk — it’s a new sound I’m excited about. It sounds like the girl version of a Bruno Mars record. It’s kind of a throwback.”
