The new song you can't escape is called "All About That Bass," and sounds nothing like its title. You won't be hearing it in the DJ's club mix or slow, loud and banging in the streets. But you might hear it if Taylor Swift and Adele ever square off in a celebrity death match.

The song is a lot of things, but the one that truly matters is it's a megahit for newcomer Meghan Trainor. Saying it's catchy is like saying the ebola virus is deadly. Sure, one or two people may be able to stop humming it after a listen, but they'll need intensive treatment in an American hospital overseen by the CDC to do it.
Trainor's voice has a sweet country twang, which belies the fact that she grew up in Massachusetts. Girl's got some blue-eyed soul, too. It might be the whole "Bass" and "Super Bass" connection, but does she sound a little like Nicki Minaj at times?
