passed on the chance to record 'All About That Bass.'
It is said that Beyoncé (as well as Adele) may not have been aware the song was being pitched to her as A&R sometimes decide whether or not the song is suitable for their artist. And if that was the case, A&R was spot on.
Sure, the song is a big hit because it was the right song for Meghan Trainor but this would not have been a hit for Beyoncé. It is not her style, it's painfully annoying and it would not have fit her vocals.
