Meghan Trainor releases an attractive music video for her “Bad For Me” 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 an attractive music video for her “Bad For Me” single featuring Teddy Swims.

“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

‘Bad For Me’ finds Meghan Trainor tapping into her doo-wop roots once more with a whole lot of fresh fire. Throwback harmonies underline a simmering groove as she opens up lyrically. In the chorus, she urges, “Please don’t make promises that you can’t keep. Your best intentions end up hurting me.” Meanwhile, Teddy Swims appears with a show-stopping vocal turn of his own. Together, they uplift the lyrics with undeniable energy.

Directed by Thom Kerr (Iggy Azalea, Kim Petras), the accompanying video finds Meghan and Teddy in a symbolic and surreal world full of flowers. As the video fluctuates between different landscapes, it showcases the journey that writing and recording this song has taken Meghan on. It’s one in which she has found light and new beginnings in distancing herself from toxic relationships.

“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.

Meghan first made history in 2014 with her diamond-certified smash single, “All About That Bass.” Since then, she has garnered a GRAMMY® for Best New Artist, achieved eight multi-platinum singles and two platinum albums, sold out three world tours, penned multi-platinum hits for peers across pop and country, and received countless industry awards and nominations. Expanding her influence on pop culture, she starred in FOX’s hit series, THE FOUR: Battle for Stardom, for two seasons and on the superstar coaching panel of The Voice UK alongside Sir Tom Jones,, and Olly Murs.
