We love the song All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor here at Rissy Roo's - not only does it have a great (dance) beat, but Meghan sings about such a positive message. In a world where it's difficult to find pop and dance songs with breakthrough meanings and messages to believe in, Meghan brings to the forefront a body positive message that all girls should keep in mind.
Well, if you've been following the song at all, you know there's been some controversy behind it. So, Canadian singer/songwriter Natty Valenia took Meghan's smash hit song to a whole new message of positivity and inclusiveness by re-writing some of the lyrics! Natty made the song a little more inclusive for girls of all shapes and sizes...including girls without curves (as Natty mentions she is one of those girls).
Here are some of the body-positive lyrics that Natty re-wrote the song to be:
It's not about your waist
'Bout your waist, don't settle
For a guy who has no taste, has no taste, don't settle
It's time that you embrace
You've got grace, don't settle
It's not about your waist, 'bout the size of your waist
So perfect, right? She even re-titled it "Not About Your Waist." Listen to the whole All About That Bass parody cover and Natty's reasoning for writing it here:
If you've never heard the original song "All About That Base" by Meghan Trainor (or just want to re-listen to it), here it is for your listening and viewing pleasure:
We'll be waiting patiently for more songs from both Meghan and Natty! They both have a lot of positive messages to share, so we can't wait to hear more. What do you think of the original All About That Bass and Natty's re-write? Leave a comment below and share your thoughts!
