Meghan Trainor's debut album, Title, knocked off Taylor Swift's 1989 on the top spot of the Billboard 200 chart. She currently holds the title for the female singer who has sold the biggest debut full-length album in over five years, according to Nielsen SoundScan. This is looking like a great time for the "All About That Bass" hitmaker, don't you think? Aside from this, Meghan is also up for two Grammy nominations this year.
