This song finds a deadbeat boyfriend exchanging jabs with the girl with whom he is trying to reconcile. It guest stars Banhart's fiancée, Serbian photographer and artist Ana Kraš. Banhart admitted, "It's so hard for me to write a sincere love song. It's got to be about what a piece-of-s--t relationship we're in now, always, somehow. But there are some sincere things here obviously - they're all sincere, really, but you have to keep a sense of humor about it."
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.
