THE LOVE TRAIN – MEGHAN TRAINOR
Arriving just a few weeks after she married actor Daryl Sabara, Meghan Trainor’s THE LOVE TRAIN EP is one giant heart-eyes emoji. The girl sounds smitten. Bright, colorful pop songs are sprinkled with twangy vocals, rallying hand-claps, and big, driving percussion, creating a blissed-out vision of love that’s rom-com-montage sweet. In this fairy tale, Trainor has no time for games: “What kind of love you gon’ put on me? ‘Cause your last name sounds good on me,” she sasses on “FOOLISH,” a song about “locking it down.” On “MARRY ME,” a song she reportedly wrote for her husband shortly after they started dating, she shakes off convention and pops the question herself.
