Beyonce Didn’t Pass On ‘All About That Bass’—Miranda Lambert Did

Did you know a 43-year-old man was the co-writer of Meghan Trainor’s pro-booty/female-empowerment/multiple GRAMMY-nominated single “All About That Bass” and its followup, “Lips Are Movin”?

Nashville songwriter Kevin Kadish spoke to Elle magazine about his work with Trainor and managed to clear up that rumor that Beyoncé passed on the track.

“I think people were speculating on who could have possibly done this song because it’s about being proud of your body—or your booty—whatever you want to call it,” Kadish said. “Like, ‘Who could sing that kind of song? Oh, Beyoncé could sing that kind of song.’ That sounds to me like something a publisher could have said. That’s not something that I ever thought or said.”

But Kadish did reveal there was one other major female artist who absolutely did hear the song and possibly indirectly passed on it: Miranda Lambert. But once it was a hit, it seems she couldn’t pass up the chance to get a little Lambert on it.
