Singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor has revealed that her new music was actually inspired by her “curves” and her father.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Trainor said that she’s loving her body shape. She also started writing songs for her next album. One of her songs is called “Curves.”

“I got curves and I know how to use them. I got curves with no plans to lose them. Cause I love who I am, so are you the man, the man who can handle my curves? That’s the chorus,” she said.

The “All About That Bass” singer has been recovering after a vocal cord surgery seven weeks ago. Trainor said she’s doing “great” but still feels “scared” at times.

Recently, she partnered for #OwnYourCurves campaign with In a video, Trainor says, “Why just wear it, when you can own it?” The campaign aims to empower women to feel confident and comfortable with the clothes they wear, according to the website. The 21-year-old singer recalled having “hard” times growing up dealing with her body image.

“It's hard growing up, especially for young curvy girls like me. I remember shopping at the mall and all my friends would be the small, and I would be getting that L,” the singer said. With a new partnership with the fashion website, Trainor told Entertainment Tonight that she’s enjoying her new look.

“I feel like a dope businesswoman, but also sexy. Everyone can't stop complimenting me today,” she said.

Just this month, Trainor dropped her music video for the tropical-sounding track “Better When I’m Dancing,” starring the “Peanuts” gang. In the video, Trainor is seen wearing a red, long-sleeved dress while dancing alongside her friends, few family members and father, Gary.

“Better When I’m Dancing” is part of the soundtrack for “The Peanuts Movie.” The soundtrack features Owl City, Flo Rida and more.
