BH Buzz: Meghan Trainor’s Album ‘Thank You’ Gets Exclusive Apple Music ReleaseMay 5, 2016
Trainor’s new album was slated for a May 13 release, but it debuted ahead of schedule.
■ Meghan Trainor is either pulling a Beyonce, or her album was uploaded to Apple Music an entire week ahead of schedule.
The Megatronz are overjoyed Trainor’s new album Thank You hit the net early. On Thursday, Trainor had not alerted fans the record would get an exclusive release with Apple. She posted a countdown teaser photo on Instagram which claimed there was 8 days left until the official release. The bottom reads “OUT MAY 13TH. PRE-ORDER NOW!”
Thank You will reside on Apple Music for one week until it gets a commercial release everywhere else come May 13.
The record features her lead single “No,” a collaboration with LunchMoney Lewis on “I Love Me” and another with Yo Gotti-on “Better.” She also teased the album title track and the appropriately-timed Mother’s Day anthem, “Mom.”
On Thursday, Trainor premiered her second official single “Me Too” and teased a still from the song’s upcoming music video.
Last month, Trainor shared the album’s tracklist, which included 11 songs, however the edition on Apple Music lists 15.
Thank You tracklist:
1. Watch Me Do
2. Me Too
4. Better featuring Yo Gotti
5. Hopeless Romantic
6. I Love Me featuring LunchMoney Lewis

9. Just A Friend To You
10. I Won’t Let You Down
11. Dance Like Yo Daddy

Via TMZ: “We’re told law enforcement in Minnesota is looking at 3 possible abuses … multiple doctors who overprescribed meds to the singer, aliases the singer and his doctors may have used, and multiple pharmacies that filled the prescriptions… Prince had prescriptions filled at least 4 times in the 7 days before he died, and at least one of the pharmacies was 6.1 miles from his home … much farther than 8 other drug stores.
