After releasing her new album Thank You last Friday, Meghan Trainor has revealed who inspired her ballad, Just a Friend To You.
In an interview with People, Meghan reveals that the song is about one of her own real-life relationships:
“[It’s] about this situation that I had since I was 18,” she says. “We live in different places and it can never work out, but for some reason, we always come back to each other and we’re always like, ‘We shouldn’t do this!’ ”
Meghan says that the song is: “one of the favorite songs I’ve ever written in my entire life. Just every part is perfect. The lyrics in the chorus are very heartbreaking and real.”
After recording the track, Meghan says she “put the headphones on his head and said ‘Listen, wrote you a song.’ I teared up, and he was like, ‘I didn’t know, but I hoped.’ We were both trying to tell each other that we love each other because we thought it would never happen, and then we finally exploded and was like, ‘Hi, I have to tell you I love you no matter what happens.”
However, the Me Too singer reveals that she’s still single.
“I’m just dating myself,” she says. “If I have little flings, they always die ’cause of the schedule, or the guy’s not right. It’s a tough job to date a pop star! Whoever will be able to do it will be the one.”
