She planned to make a living writing for other artists until L.A. Reid heard the demo for "All About That Bass" and insisted she release it herself. The legendary record executive saw star potential that Meghan didn't see in herself.

2. She co-wrote every song on her debut album, Title.


3. Admit it: You're still "All About That Bass."


You'll always be about that bass because you'll never get the chorus out of your head. You'll be singing "All about that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble" on your death bed.

4. She's legit amazing on the ukulele.
