‘The Voice’ Star RaeLynn Covers Meghan Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’ [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]
There’s a reason ‘The Voice‘ fans connected with country singer RaeLynn. The season 2 contestant, who competed on Blake Shelton‘s team, is cheerful, charming, ultra-talented and downright hilarious. One other thing we adore about her? Her ability to empower women.
Although RaeLynn is known for her catchy country single ‘God Made Girls,’ she opted to perform a surprise track for the PopCrush staff — a cover of Meghan Trainor‘s ‘All About That Bass.’ Bonus: Meghan happens to be a good friend of RaeLynn’s!
“I’ve written with her a couple of times in Nashville. She is such an amazing person and really good friend,” RaeLynn explained to PopCrush. “We haven’t got to hang out a lot because she’s been so busy with writing and I’ve been so busy … but we always make time to text each other and check on each other and we both support each other so much. She played me ‘All About That Bass’ about a year and a half ago – or maybe two years ago – and I was like, ‘Girl, this song is so amazing. Like, this is going to blow up and be huge one day. This is an amazing message, so good.’ And then a year later she get’s signed to [L.A. Reid’s label] and then a year later she has the No.1 song on iTunes!”
With an infinite list of cover songs from which to choose, we couldn’t resist asking RaeLynn why she picked ‘All About That Bass.’
“I’m all about girl empowerment and … I hate the whole bullying thing right now,” RaeLynn said. “I’m all about keeping it – girls need to be sweet to other girls. Like, we don’t need to judge each other. We all need to love each other. To each their own, everybody’s different. I just love the message of this song, and I have a song called ‘God Made Girls,’ and I just love that she has another girl empowerment song.”
And we love RaeLynn’s positive message to other women! Check out her incredible acoustic cover of ‘All About That Bass’ in the video above. Stay tuned to PopCrush for an interview with RaeLynn, coming soon!
