Meghan Elizabeth Trainor is an American singer, record producer, and songwriter with a net worth estimated at $8 million.

The music talent began her professional career in 2009 being only 16 years old at the time. Fortunately, she struck gold quite early in her musical career after the release of her hit single titled All About That Bass in 2014. The single topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for about two months and was awarded a diamond certification by RIAA.

Following a career that has spanned over a decade and a long list of awards and honors, including two out of the three major music awards (the Grammy and the Billboard Awards), Trainor joined the list of accomplished musicians with several hit songs that account for the wealth and fame she enjoys.

A Look At Meghan Trainor’s Musical Career and Hit Songs

Trainor has recorded a tremendous amount of success in her musical career. It all started with her 2014 hit single All About That Bass, which earned her international acclaim and recognition. The highly-rated song has garnered over a billion views on YouTube. Meghan’s debut EP peaked at #15 and #17 on the US Billboard 200 and Canadian Albums Charts respectively. Her follow-up single Lips Are Movin’ made the top 10 songs in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia.

The All About That Bass crooner released her debut album titled Title in January 2015. RIAA gave the album a triple-platinum certification after it peaked at the number one position on the US Billboard 200 chart. The album turned out to be one of the best-selling albums of 2015, selling over 1.8 million copies. Trainor songwriting and singing prowess have seen many of her songs become instant hits and top various charts across the world. Some of her stand-out songs include Dear Future Husband, Like I’m Gonna Lose You, No, No Excuses, and Just Got Paid.

The songwriter is a four-time recipient of the ASCAP Pop Music Awards and a recipient of the People’s Choice Awards. The hallmark of her musical career was receiving the glamorous Grammy Award in 2016 for Best New Artist, thanks to her album Thank You and her single hit I’m a Lady. Meghan has also won the prestigious Billboard Music Awards two times since she started her musical journey.

Analysis of Meghan Trainor’s Net Worth

According to what has been estimated on various platforms, Meghan Trainor has a net worth of $8 million. For anyone that’s aware the singer publicly declared she was flat broke sometime in 2015, it would be difficult to believe she is a multimillionaire. When Meghan asserted she was broke, she had released her debut album which sold no fewer than 1.8 million copies across the globe. Being her debut album, it is true that the singer didn’t have much then, but things have changed. As typical with recording contracts, artists have to wait for several months after a release before they get their share of the revenue generated. Based on what the singer shared, she got a “big fat cheque after nine months” and it marked the beginning of her journey to financial freedom.

Proceeds from Record Sales Is The Biggest Source of Her $8 Million Net Worth 

No one needs to be told that Meghan Trainor’s career as a singer is the major source of her wealth. While she has been able to create other sources of income over the years, being a musician remains the prime reason she is popular and wealthy. Thus far her career has seen her release 28 singles, 24 music videos, 15 promotional singles, four studio albums, three independent albums, two extended plays, as well as two live albums. What this means is that the American singer has a robust body of work that has generated millions of dollars in record sales.

The singer released her first independent album, “Meghan Trainor”, on the 25th of December 2009. This was followed by “I’ll Sing with You” and “Only 17”, both released in 2011 and respectively on the 31st of January and 14th of September. On the 9th of September 2014, she released her first EP titled “Title” which sold over 171 thousand copies in the United States. The following year, precisely on the 9th of January, Meghan Trainor dropped her debut studio album. Also titled “Title”, the album attained multiple platinum certifications in the United States, Australia, and Canada. It also went platinum in Britain, Sweden, and New Zealand.

Since then, she has released three more studio albums: “Thank You” of 2016, “Treat Myself” and “A Very Trainor Christmas” both released in 2020. Before the 2020 albums, she released her second EP titled “The Love Train” in February 2019.

Meghan Trainor Has Also Made Millions from Concert Tours

For a singer who has sold millions of records across the globe, it would have been unusual if Meghan hasn’t tapped into the earning potentials offered by concert tours. Her career has seen her perform in various stages across the globe and it has contributed to her net worth in no small manner. The first tour she headlined was the That Bass Tour which kicked off on the 11th of February 2015 and ended on the 6th of June 2015. It was her debut concert tour and it saw Meghan perform in many venues across the United States, Canada, England, Germany, Japan, and several other countries. Her shows at the El Rey Theatre in the US on the 21st and 22nd of February grossed $38,500.

Almost as soon as the That Boss Tour came to an end, Meghan Trainor embarked on her second headlining concert. The MTrain Tour which was announced in March 2015 kicked off on the 14th of July 2015 at The Pageant in St. Louis, Missouri, United States, and ended on the 8th of August at the Saint-Jean Airport in Canada. She performed in a total of 13 concerts with about 16 canceled due to vocal cord hemorrhage.

Fully recovered, the All About That Bass singer embarked on her third headlining concert tour in support of her 2016 album, Thank You. It was in April 2016 that the Untouchable Tour was announced and it kicked off on the 14th of July 2016 at Ford Amphitheater in Nampa, Idaho. Apart from the United States and Canada, she also performed in Spain, pulling off a total of 31 shows that grossed over $2 million at the box office.

Income from Movies and Television Shows

Apart from making songs that span various genres from R&B to Pop, Doo-wop, and blue-eyed soul, Meghan Trainor plays musical instruments such as the bass guitar, ukulele, keyboard, trumpet, percussion, and piano. She also writes songs and it is said that she is motivated by Sinatra’s repertoire as a songwriter. Beyond her exploits in the music industry, Meghan Trainor’s net worth has also accrued from her appearances in movies and television shows.

The singer has had voice roles in Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) and Playmobil: The Movie (2019). She voiced Smurfmelody in the former and the Fairy god-mother in the latter. She has also appeared in notable TV shows either as a guest or judge, including The Voice, Undateable, and RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Meghan’s career is blooming and she’s making the best out of every single opportunity that comes her way. Having been decorated with over eight deserving awards, it is easy to predict that the young millionaire stands a good chance of tripling her fortune in the future. This beautiful singer-songwriter who has earned heavily from the sales of her music is bound to be worth more than $8 million in the nearest future.

The Singer Owns Two Luxury Homes In Los Angeles

In December 2020, it circulated that Meghan Trainor had acquired a mansion in Encino, Los Angeles for $6.6 million. She bought the home from TMG Fresh and it measures 9,936 square feet with six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

She owns another property in Los Angeles, at Toluca Lake. The 6,700 square foot house has 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, in addition to other amenities you’d expect in the home of a celebrated singer like a spa, swimming pool, and what have you. She reportedly purchased the home for $4.9 million in 2016.

Career Achievements of Meghan Who Has Been Singing Since She Was Six

With her net worth estimated at $8 million, Meghan Trainor has come a long way from when she started singing at the age of six. As the story goes, Meghan began singing at that young age in a Methodist church alongside her father. Given that the man was an organist and a music teacher, it is not hard to see where the singer got her music genes. Meghan made it clear that she wanted to sing for a career and her family gave her all the support she needed. With little guidance from her father, she began writing and recording songs using GarageBand, a digital audio workstation software designed to help users create music or podcast.

At 12, she was part of a family cover band called Island Fusion which had her father, younger brother, and aunt as members. When Meghan turned 15, she had started producing her songs and by 17, she had independently produced and released three albums. After she had struggled for years trying to establish herself in the music industry, her breakthrough came in 2014 when she performed her song “All About That Bass” to an agent who introduced her to L.A. Reid, the CEO of Epic Records at that time. She again performed the song for Reid and he reportedly signed her a few minutes later.

What We Know About Meghan Trainor’s Husband and Love Life

The American pop star is head over heels in love with Daryl Sabara, a charming actor whom she describes as the “best kisser”. Daryl and the hitmaker first made their relationship open at the end of October 2016. The duo married a year later on December 22, 2018, during her 25th birthday.

Trainor’s husband is a voice actor who provided voices for Finding Nemo and Hero Boy in The Polar Express. A fine actor whose acting career began in the mid-1990s, he is best known for the Spy Kids films. Sabara sealed his love for the Grammy Award-winning artist during her 24th birthday with a super romantic proposal. Of course, Trainor said yes and even took to their social media pages to share the exciting news.

Here’s What We Know About Daryl Sabara

He was born on June 14, 1992, in Los Angeles, California whereas his wife Meghan was born in Nantucket, Massachusetts. He’s of Russian, Jewish, and German ancestry and has a twin named Evans who is also into acting. Daryl Sabara started his career with the regional ballet company called South Bay Ballet before launching his acting career in 1997 with an appearance on some episodes of Murphy Brown. He had a few more stints in shows such as Life’s Work before his breakthrough role in the Spy Kids series. The actor also appeared in Friends and starred in the film April (2009), the brainchild of a survivor of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre.

Moreso, he has been involved in voice-over projects for several films and TV series. Among such notable roles of Daryl include playing the main character in the animated edition of The Polar Express. Most recently, he has been playing a recurring role in Ben 10 and has been on the show since 2016.

His video game accomplishment isn’t one to be easily overlooked as well. He has performed in notable video games such as The Polar Express, Cartoon Network Universe: FusionFall, Generator Rex: Agent of Providence, Saints Row: The Third, and Ben 10. With his long list of films, TV shows, and video game credits, it is easy to assume that he’s as big as his wife when it comes to finances but that may not entirely be true.

While there are no details on the exact amount Darly earns, there are reliable indications that the actor hasn’t made much money from his career compared to his wife.
