Meghan Trainor

It might be tempting to dismiss Meghan Trainor as merely a sugary purveyor of lightweight dance-pop hits such as "Lips Are Movin'?" and her unapologetic ode to curvy women, "All About That Bass." But the Massachusetts singer is no dummy. She infuses her bubble-gum pop songs with savvy doo-wop harmonies and blue-eyed soul tradition. The precocious former Berklee College of Music student can play several instruments, and at 21 sings with a vocal sophistication that belies her age. The bouncy, retro-pop exultation of “Dear Future Husband” masks Trainor’s clever lyrical advice to potential suitors (“Don’t have a dirty mind/Just be a classy guy”). She offers more pointed suggestions on “Title”: “Baby, don’t call me your friend … You might never get a chance to see me naked in your bed.” Also Sunday, Feb. 22
