Meghan Trainor, the champ!


  1. FYI that was not soca at all. Soca is much more upbeat and party/ fete styled. She realized that but went ahead with it, but the roots failed that one hard.

  2. She is singing out of tune, her voice sounds very nasal and halve of the time you cant understand what words she is singing. Jimmy Fallon is a better singer then Megan….

  3. They don’t seem to be pretending this is random for any comic reason. It just seems like they’re trying to inflate themselves. So even though you’d think who’d fall for that, it’s also like wtf is this then.

  4. Meghan is so talented! She writes and produces her songs. She's funny and sweet too😄
    I've been watching a few interviews.

  5. I thought the SOCA version of Adore You wasn’t SOCA enough. But it would be nice to hear her or any 🇹🇹 artist perform a full soca version of that song. Now that I think about it, I nominate Kes The Band. 👍🏽👍🏽❤️

  6. I think Meghan is even more talented than Ariana Grande. She’s got a great personality, writing, composing, and singing skills. She’s the full package.

  7. You can definitly hear the influence of soca music in her music today, I hope she taps more into it in the future too. I love how her voice sounds in that genre!

  8. THEY DID ‘ADORE YOU’ I LOVE THAT SONG!!!💙💚 I also love how everyone is talking about Adore You!!!

  9. when she said Trinidad and Tobago 🇹🇹🇹🇹 much love from the Caribbean 💜💜 lol you have soca music in yuh blood

  10. What the fuck is Soft Pop? The roots went with Smooth Jazz. I've never been great with sub-genres, but I've never even heard of Soft Pop.
