Meghan Trainor releases a wonderful performance video for her “Bad For Me (Acoustic)” single featuring Teddy Swims

Meghan Trainor is a GRAMMY® Award-winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Nantucket, Massachusetts. Not too long ago, she released a wonderful performance video for her  “Bad For Me (Acoustic)” single featuring Teddy Swims.

The stripped-back track elevates both Meghan’s impassioned vocals, as well as the vulnerable lyrics about walking away from a toxic relationship. Later, Teddy’s vocals uplift the song’s sentiment.

The accompanying video sees the pair performing the song together live in a recording studio, along with a pianist and guitarist. The setting allows fans to experience the song in a new, more intimate format while still paying homage to the whimsical world of the original music video.

“My dad actually sent me Teddy’s video for ‘Broke,’ and I’ve been so obsessed with him ever since. It’s a dream to record with someone who has that good of a voice, and he’s the sweetest guy ever. The song is a true story for me. It’s about how I stood up for myself and took a step back from a relationship that was hurting me more than anything. It’s hard to do, but I needed to in order to feel better.” – Meghan Trainor explained

Earlier this summer, Meghan announced her anxiously awaited fourth full-length album, “Takin’ It Back,” arriving October 21st, 2022, via Epic Records. This time around, she made a conscious decision to hark back to the signature sound she introduced on her 2015 full-length debut, TITLE, and bring it forward to today.

“I tried to do the doo-wop feel I had at the beginning of my career, but the 2022 version of it. This is from the new Meghan who is a wife and mom with a baby. This is from me right now. I decided to give the people what they want, but with my spices added to it. I wanted to make my Title 2.0.” – Meghan Trainor explained

To bring the project to life, Meghan worked closely alongside a “core squad” of Gian Stone, Federico Vindver, Sean Douglas, and little brother, Justin Trainor out of her own home studio. Musically, she integrated doo-wop and classic harmonies into one anthem after another taking you through her journey into marriage, motherhood, and achieving a new level of confidence.
