Meghan Trainor To Join The Voice UK

News Image
Singer/Songwriter Meghan Trainor is to join The Voice UK as a new coach alongside Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am and Olly Murs.

Trainor burst onto the music scene with the worldwide smash single All About That Bass in 2014 – a song that made her one of only five female artists to achieve a Diamond certification. Thus far, she has achieved eight multi-platinum singles and two platinum albums, sold out three world tours, and has not only penned hit songs for herself but written for a variety of artists across pop and country, including JLo and Rascal Flatts. Today, Meghan also released her brand-new single, Wave, featuring rising New York singer, songwriter and producer Mike Sabath (Lizzo, J Balvin, Selena Gomez, Jonas Brothers). The track heralds the impending arrival of her anxiously awaited third full-length album, Treat Myself, coming soon.

In 2018, she released anthems No Excuses and Let You Be Right and collaborated with Sigala, Ella Eyre and French Montana on the hit single Just Got Paid. Following that, she celebrated Valentine’s Day 2019 with the love-themed six-song The Love Train EP and to kick off the summer, she collaborated with dance music titan, Kaskade, for their song With You.

In the US, she has been a judge on FOX’s singing contest THE FOUR: Battle for Stardom for two seasons alongside Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and DJ Khaled. Now, as she prepares to join The Voice UK Meghan says: “I am so excited and honoured to join Sir Tom, will.i.am and Olly Murs as the new Coach on The Voice UK! It’s a dream come true and I can’t wait to sit in the chair with my own button and listen to some incredible new talent!”

This news follows Jennifer Hudson confirming last night that she will be standing down from her role as a Coach on The Voice UK as she prepares for the December release of the hotly anticipated film adaptation of Cats and commences filming the Aretha Franklin biopic, Respect.

Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am and Olly Murs all return to their big red chairs following a summer spent entertaining audiences around the world on their respective tours.
