Meghan Trainor shared her new single and accompanying video for “Mother,” which appears on the new Deluxe Edition of her recent album Takin’ It Back.
Trainor enlisted mother-of-all-mothers Kris Jenner to star in the video for “Mother,” directed by longtime collaborator Charm LaDonna. The pair dance and sing along to the doo-wop inspired track, which samples The Chordettes’s 1954 hit, “Mr. Sandman.” Said Trainor: “I’m beyond excited to finally share ‘Mother’ with the world! This song is my response to being in the industry for almost a decade now and still finding myself in situations where I am talked down to or made to feel like my opinion isn’t valid. It’s for anyone who is in a situation where they feel like they are being mansplained to and want to take their power back.”
Trainor’s Takin’ It Back (Deluxe Edition) includes the album’s original 16 tracks as well as three new tracks – “Mother,” “Grow Up,” and “Special Delivery” featuring Max — and the remix of “Made You Look” featuring Kim Petras.
