Despite the success of her single all about the bass, Meghan Trainor claims she remains broke because she’s still not yet paid. The singer said she has to wait until April to get her money.
Her first new album “Title” would certainly make her rich in no time as it quickly went up the ranks and even pushed Taylor Swift’s album out from the top spot in the Billboard Charts, which was perched on that premiere rank for three weeks now. According to Reuters, “Title,” which included her hit song “All About That Bass” and “Lips Are Moving,” already achieved significant sales of 195,000 albums as well as 377,000 song downloads. The album was already streamed around 8 million streams, as shown by the figures compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.
“I haven’t made any money yet. They say I will get a big fat cheque after nine months which will be in April so I’m hoping that’s right,” Meghan Trainor said. She added that people are quick to assume that she became rich overnight when her “All About that Bass” made all those charts, but in reality, she cannot even make any big purchase yet. However, she quickly added that she’s already working on it.”
Of course she doesn’t have any money yet, she’s only got one hit lol. None of these artist start with real money until the second or third album anyway.
