Meghan Trainor made a name for herself in 2014 with her runaway hit "All About That Bass." Now, she's making online waves with her huge following as she posted the hubbub that was all about that ring.
The singer-songwriter revealed earlier in March a giant rock on her finger, which symbolized her engagement during the Christmas holidays to Spy Kids actor Daryl Sabara. Her beau made the moment even more special when he proposed to her Dec. 22, Traynor's 24th birthday, in a tunnel decked out with Yuletide lights glowing for additional ambience.
In a video, Trainor zoomed in on the diamond. Yep, that's one glittering display of compressed carbon, for sure.
The two, who have been dating for roughly 18 months, have hinted they'll tie the knot later in 2018. Once they're hitched, Traynor hopes their first dance will be to another self-penned work, "Hopeless Romantic," which she says was written before she and Sabara started dating. At the time, the two had only met once briefly at a party.
“It was freaky," she said about the prophetic lyrics to the song, "one of those freaky moments in life when you’re like, destiny."
It took more than destiny for Trainor to get the attention of the music industry. The Nantucket-raised chanteuse had previously thought she'd make a name for herself as a songwriter, until Epic Records signed her. "All About That Bass," ruled the top spot of the charts for nearly two months when she was only 20 years old. Co-written with producer Kevin Kadish, the piece originally had the working title, "All Treble, No Bass," but when Trainor explained the tune was about empowering women lacking supermodel bodies, the two changed the title and reworked the song in less than an hour.
Trainor, who has written songs for country acts like Rascal Flatts and Lauren Alaina, followed up on her breakout hit with "Lips Are Movin'" later that year. In 2015, Epic released "Like I'm Gonna Lose You," which she performed with John Legend. Trainor enjoyed more success in 2016 with two hits ("No" and "Me Too"), although neither managed to crack Billboard's top five.
Besides her impending nuptials, Trainor's hoping to get back into high-rotation with her recently-released, Zumba-influenced song "No Excuses." She's also signed on to adjudicate on the new Fox reality talent series The Four, in which she shares the panel with DJ Khaled, Sean "Diddy" Combs, and former Black-Eyed Peas vocalist Fergie Duhamel.
