It’s official: This country really is all about that bass.

Meghan Trainor‘s breezy ode to body image has taken the crown away from Taylor Swift‘s two-week #1 “Shake It Off” this week, moving on up to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

The breezy ode to body image — part of her debut EP Title, which was released this week — was bolstered by a few key promotional appearances for the major push to #1, including her silly classroom instrument-led performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

And, as a point of pride for us here at Idolator, we first premiered our girl Meghan’s video for “All About That Bass” back in early June. My, how much has changed in such a short time. Congratulations, Meghan!
