Meghan Trainor Wrote Her Upcoming Single in One Day

Meghan Trainor joins Epic Records head L.A. Reid as a guest at the conversation about his new memoir on Tuesday (February 2) at 92Y in New York City.

The 22-year-old singer recently told Fuse that she wrote her upcoming single “No” in one day to impress L.A. after her label told her she didn’t have a lead single on her record yet.

“I left that meeting and I went to the studio and I wrote a big anthem that was called ‘No,’” Meghan said. “And I came back to L.A. Reid the next day, with it all produced and written, and I played it for him and he played it 24 times at 9:00 p.m. at night, because he loved it so much. He was like, ‘There it is.’”

L.A. Reid Wasn't Convinced Rihanna Was Going to be a Star

Rihanna keeps her headphones on after her flight arrives at LAX airport on Friday (January 8) in Los Angeles.

The 27-year-old singer may be a superstar now, but according to record executive L.A. Reid, her record label wasn’t so convinced in the beginning.

“At the label, we thought Teairra Mari would be the big star. We spent more time on her, did more work on her, paid more attention to her. Rihanna already had a hit with ‘Pon De Replay,’ but we still thought it was the other girl,” he wrote in his memoir.

But Rihanna can credit Beyoncé to changing his mind!

BeyoncĂ© came up to me. ‘That Rihanna girl,’ she said, ‘she’s a beast.’”

FYI: RiRi is wearing Sunday Somewhere sunglasses.
