Meghan Trainor is a class act. She has her own brand of pop and a distinct musical style. “Dear Future Husband,” a single off her successful record, Title, is a product of her rare mixture of playful class infused with boogie-woogie remnants of the good old days of American music. It’s contagiously infectious as the bouncy beats progress to create a melody that cannot easily be forgotten. It stays on the mind until the listener is transported to a glorious past, where music is totally about the fun and not the pretenses that now come with it.
Meghan Trainor is not a belter; neither does she try so hard to be one. She is just a musician capable of utilizing her instrument to its best use. Truthfully, there is already a Meghan Trainor craze of some sort today. Her debut single, “All About That Bass,” has been on the Top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100 for quite some time now. It stays on the upper echelon of the chart while her new hit, “Lips Are Movin,” also made its way to the top. If we look at the iTunes Singles Chart, “Dear Future Husband” already made its presence felt, in spite of the focus on the more popular songs from Meghan. This is an authentication of how Meghan masterfully uses her strengths to please the listeners’ picky ears.
In other words, “Dear Future Husband” is a solid track, though it has the tendency to be repetitive. More so, it’s hard to distinguish the track from Meghan’s previous efforts. While it is a potential hit, it creates a hint of homogeneity in the capacity of Meghan as a singer. How will the listeners differentiate this record from her other songs? This is a challenge, therefore, for the singer to create conditions that will remind the people that what she does is fashion and not a fad. While the song is as catchy as a pop track can be, it should be able to create an impact that can surpass its predecessors. Meghan must be able to come up with an excellent music video devoid of any allusions to her previous ones.
On the other hand, the lyrics of “Dear Future Husband” are creatively penned to suit the style of Meghan. In a world dominated by sexual fallacies, Meghan’s song is a reminder that we still have hope. It does not border to an unnatural sexiness. It is just like an innocent girl writing in her diary for her future husband to satisfy her desires as a woman. It is not necessarily a song about how a man can satisfy a woman’s sexual needs. Rather, it is an indication of the many facets of a woman’s satisfaction. Now, the urgent task for Meghan is to teach other pop hopefuls how not to be desperate while pushing their luck with fame.
