Was Britney Spears Singing All About That Bass Before Meghan Trainor?

Alisha Jackson

We all know that Meghan Trainor is all about that bass.

No treble:

But, did you know that Britney Spears and will.i.am were singing about bass and treble three years before Trainor’s “All About That Bass” came out?

Listen to “Big Fat Bass” from Britney’s 2011 album, Femme Fatale, below:

The good news? Trainor isn’t into treble, and Britney wants to be the treble, so we don’t see any conflicts there.

The possible bad news: While the songs couldn’t sound more polar opposite, one could argue that will.i.am came up with Trainor’s play on words first.

If anything, we think that Meghan may have been inspired by the song, but it’s very possible that she’s never heard the track at all.

What do you think? Do Britney and will.i.am deserve some cred?
