January 14, 2015 at 2:03 PM (PT)
"Title," the debut album for EPIC RECORDS artist MEGHAN TRAINOR hit retail yesterday (1/13) and to celebrate, the label pulled out all the stops for the album release party, held that night at the posh HOLLYWOOD hotspot, WARWICK CRAFT COCKTAIL BAR.
The space was packed with label personnel, radio and press, plus assorted party-goers and friends of the singer. Mixers were on hand to fill the room with music (including songs from the release), where screened images of TRAINOR hung from the ceiling, a huge mirror ball cast sparkling light everywhere and the helpful staff provided cocktails and food for the guests.
Among the guests enjoying the fun ALL ACCESS spotted NICK CANNON, RED FOO, AMBER ROSE, BECKY G, TROY CARTER, SCOOTER BRAUN, ALLY and DINAH from FIFTH HARMONY and CIARA.
Radio was represented with MICHELLE BOROS from KAMP, CHRIS PATYK from KEGY, JOHN IVEY, BEATA MURPHY, SISANIE and NELSON AGUIRRE from KIIS, BRANDON BELL from KBIG, REFLEX from KPWR, PHIL GUERINI and KRISTIN YASUDA from KDIS, SUPA JAMES from KFRH/KRCK, BOB LEWIS from KKXX/KISV, QUAY from KFYV/KCAQ and JASON BOWERS from WESTWOOD ONE's Hot AC channel.
After much celebrating, LA REID brought the singer to the stage where he described how, at the tender age of 21, "MEGHAN TRAINOR has the #1 album in 55 countries. She also has the longest #1 song in the history of EPIC RECORDS," a record previously held by two MICHAEL JACKSON songs, "Black Or White" and "Billie Jean" (both #1 for 7 weeks). REID then presented the singer with a huge plaque, commemorating her outstanding achievement.
The album debuted #1 on iTUNES, displacing TAYLOR SWIFT's "1989", while both "Lips Are Movin" and "All About That Bass" are Top 10 iTUNES singles. A third track, "Dear Future Husband" from TRAINOR's EP has reached Gold sales status, without exposure on radio or TV.
ALL ACCESS thanks our hosts at EPIC, including LA REID, SYLVIA RHONE, TODD GLASSMAN, SUJIT KUNDU, SANDRA AFLOAREI and PAUL PONTIUS (who signed the singer) for a fantastic night on the town!
