Meghan Trainor Claims #1 on Billboard Hot 100 Charts for 7th Consecutive Week
No one expected IAMA (International Acoustic Music Awards) winner Meghan Trainor to dethrone Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj or Iggy Azalea, but that is exactly what she's done for seven weeks in a row with her hit song 'All About That Bass'. Taking the entire world by storm, she's more than proved her staying power by matching a record set my Michael Jackson, earning her a prominent place on the pop music map.
If you've listened to the radio at all in the last month several week's you'd be hard pressed to miss her chart topper. 'All About That Bass' debuted at #84 and blew the top off the charts at an astounding rate. Trainor is neck and neck with Iggy Azalea's "Fancy feat. Charli XCX for longest run at #1 on Billboard Hot 100 by a female artist in 2014.
Trainor's success is unprecedented among IAMA winners. Jessica Brandon, artist relations of IAMA said "IAMA is so proud to announce that Meghan Trainor is currently the most successful artist so far in the history of the International Accoustic Music Awards. What her hit song has achieved is so incredible for any music artist."
Less than 1% of artist will achieve the success that Trainor has earned so early in her career. 'Bass' has sold over 4.2 million copies and is now an international #1 hit – topping the charts in Australia, Austria, Denmark, Canada, Ireland and many others – but the hit song isn't the only thing climbing the charts. Her album, 'Title' debuted at #15 on the Billboard Album chart – if 'Bass' is any indication of the album's potential to succeed, records wont just be matched, they'll be broken.
