Meghan Trainor Covers One Direction and Takes On a Nicki Minaj Rap
Meghan Trainor may have another hit on her hands. Although the "All About That Bass" singer has a collaboration with Harry Styles in the works (called "London Lights"), all of One Direction may want to give her a call.
After giving a little preview of "London Lights" on the ukelele on the U.K.-based radio show Capital FM Breakfast, she did a very short cover of One Directions's “Little Things” and it was amazing. OK, so it wasn't an exactly an official cover and it was more like impromptu karaoke, but it was still impressive:
Trainor was playing Instaoke on the radio show and in addition to "Little Things" managed to kill 15-second snippets of hits from 5 Seconds of Summer and even Nicki Minaj's rap in "Bang Bang." She was super nervous about attempting to rap but she absolutely nailed it. Talk about performing under pressure!
Trainor is nominated for both Record and Song of the Year at the Grammy Awards, which take place in February. Best of luck, Meghan!
