Meghan Trainor has "big" plans for her next album.
Despite having to undergo vocal cord surgery in September, the "All About That Bass" singer is forging ahead and is wrapping up her second album.
"It has a lot of big songs on it that I can't for the world to finally hear," Meghan told us over the phone. "I haven't been working long on it, but I got some good stuff and I think we are going to wrap it up soon."
Meghan, who hopes to have her second album out in "February or March," revealed that she has so many potential singles for her follow-up to her debut, Title, but be prepared for a sound that's "not on the radio."
"I wanted to go big, I wanted to get all my influences in there and show everything from my caribbean side to my love for Bruno Mars and Aretha Franklin and even some Elvis vibes, anyone I grew up listening to," she said. "I was trying to show the world what I love. I wanted to do something that's not on the radio, but kind of different."
And to make it a little different, the Best New Artist Grammy nominee has already lined up some collaborations including U.S. Virgin Islands duo, R City, who have produced for Miley Cyrus and Rihanna, and a big "super star"...her mom.
"One of my songs, is my mom, Kelli Trainor, the super star, it's so bomb," Meghan said. "It's a phone call between her and I and it's the cutest thing ever that will break all the hearts in the world."
