Meghan Trainor says Beyoncé and Adele were offered 'All About That Bass'

Meghan Trainor has revealed that big name stars such as Beyoncé and Adele turned down 'All About That Bass'.

The singer is currently No.1 in the UK with the tune, which has also topped the chart in the US.

Speaking to the Guardian, Trainor said that the hit track has previously been offered to a number of top stars.

She said: "Some artists get thousands of songs pitched and they never know, so Beyoncé herself probably never heard it.

"There weren't any singers at the time [who fit the song]. Adele was the only one, but she wasn't rapping and singing sassy songs with swears in them."

Speaking meanwhile about falling ill due to her hectic lifestyle, Trainor added:

"Because the song was so successful so fast, none of us could handle the schedule. Everyone was asking us to do everything and we hated to say no to anything, so we said yes, and eventually I just crashed. I actually am lying in bed. I just landed in Canada, and I’m in bed doing all these interviews in my sweatshirt and sweatpants.
