How Did Meghan Trainor Make Her Money & Wealth?
Trainor was born in 1993 in Nantucket, Massachusetts, and started singing when she was just six years old. She wrote her first music piece by the time she was eleven. Meghan attributes the above to the fact that most of her family were musicians, so it was natural for her to lean towards music.
She started playing in Island Fusion, a “party band” consisted of her aunt, younger brother, father and Meghan herself. During this time, she experimented with various instruments and songwriting. During her teenage years, she independently released three albums, all written, recorded and performed by herself. Meghan won her first two awards during this time.
At 17 years of age, Meghan turned down a full scholarship to the Berklee College of Music in order to pursue a songwriting career. She would go on to spend most of 2013 traveling while writing pop and country songs. This was the year in which she wrote All About That Bass, which was denied by several record labels. Frustrated with their decisions, Meghan would go on to record the song herself. The song was officially released in June 2014 and went viral overnight. It topped the charts in 58 different countries and sold dozens of millions of copies.
Meghan Trainor’s second single was a huge hit as well. Lips Are Movin peaked in the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Her first studio album was released in early 2015 under the name Title, and once, Meghan would top the charts. Since then, Meghan has been an incredibly popular musician and gaining loads of fame (and money!). Her second album was released in May 2016, and she has another one coming in 2018.
Through her work as a singer, songwriter, and mainstream performer, Meghan Trainor became a very rich woman. Meghan’s true net worth is estimated somewhere between $5 and $6 million dollars. We’ve no doubts that her income will keep growing as she is still a hugely popular musician.
