This guitar-heavy pop blast is the title track and lead single of teenage singer-songwriter Demi Lovato''s second album. It was premiered on Radio Disney, June 17, 2009.
Mher Filian, Isaac Hasson and Lindy Robbins ("What's Left of Me") penned the song. It is one of three songs on Here We Go Again that Demi has no writing credits for. Filian and Hasson also produced the track under the name of SuperSpy.
In this song, Demi expresses her feelings about breaking-up with her boyfriend. She told Reuters that though many of her songs are about boys, in reality, stardom gets in the way of teen romance. Demi added that it's hard to develop a meaningful relationship when a boy kisses her then exclaims, "I can't believe I'm kissing you." "I hate relationships," said Demi, "so I'm not like a relationship-type person. But I have a lot of cute friends, That's all I need when you're 16 and in the spotlight."
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.
Robin Thicke and his mom, Gloria Loring are the first the first ever mother-and-son to have both tallied top 10 singles on the Hot 100 as solo artists or duos. Loring reached #2 with Carl Anderson in 1986 with "Friends and Lovers" and Thicke topped the chart in 2013 with "Blurred Lines."
