This ballad is the second single by English singer Cheryl Cole, from her second studio album, Messy Little Raindrops. The song was described by X Factor magazine as: "a massive, strong-laden, Christmassy tear-jerker about wreckage, drowning and natural disaster love."
The UK singles market was flooded with songs of this title in 2010. Other releases of the same name include hits by Katie Melua and Take That.
Sophie Muller, who directed Cole's first solo video ("Promise This"), shot the clip on England's south coast, where the lonely singer is shown wandering the seaside.
Meghan Trainor and her producer Kevin Kadish originally wrote "All About That Bass" for another artist to record. However, after Epic Records boss LA Reid heard Meghan play a demo of the song on a ukulele, he signed the young songwriter to his label and told her she should sing it.
