UPDATE (May 10): A day after Meghan Trainor’s “Me Too” music video was released and then subsequently removed by the artist over unapproved Photshopping, Trainor has re-uploaded the video without the controversial Photoshopping. In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Trainor posted a side-by-side of her Photoshopped body from the original video and her body in the new video, writing “Missed that bass. Thank you everyone for the support.”
UPDATE (May 9): Hours after the release of her “Me Too” video on Monday, Meghan Trainor took the clip down, saying the her body was overly Photoshopped and she didn’t approve the final product. “My waist is not that teeny,” Trainor said in a SnapChat video. “I didn’t approve that video and it went out for the world, so I’m embarrassed.”
EARLIER (May 9): Meet M-Train, Meghan Trainor’s unapologetically self-obsessed alter ego who takes center stage in her new music video for “Me Too.”
In the clip, Trainor awakens to a thumping synth bassline and takes a look at her bedside Grammy before heading to the bathroom to get ready for her day. And what a day it is! Donning an “MTRAIN” gold chain and a giraffe onesie, Trainor makes her way through a crowd of adoring fans to her car, where she dances along to the spoken-word chorus with a Frappuccino in hand. At the end of the video, Trainor breaks away from the story for dance scene with the help of teal-clad backup dancers.
The new song features many similarities to the “All About That Bass” breakout’s most recent single, “No”: Both videos move away from the retro look of Trainor’s previous videos in favor of sleeker and more modern fare, and both songs see Trainor experimenting with genre, notably using rap-inspired breaks.
“Me Too” is the second single off Trainor’s Thank You, out Friday. Watch the video above.
