Does the Kidz Bop Version of Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" Say She's, Um...Bringing Anal Back?
With the arrival of popular songs comes the inevitable cover--some cringe-worthy and some that are actually better than the original. Take for instance, Meghan Trainor’s hit song “All About That Bass.” From YouTube fans to Kate Davis, who plays the song with an actual upright bass, many have taken a shot at singing the pop hit. However, the Kidz Bop version took it to the next level with a word change that shocked some parents.
Kidz Bop is an album series that turns hit pop songs into kid-friendly tunes, sung by other kids. On Kidz Bop 27 (yes, friggin' 27!), one of the tracks is Trainor’s “All About the Bass,” one of the best-selling singles of all time. However, parents were shocked (while others probably pretty amused) when they believed the song to have changed the line “I’m bring booty back” to “I’m bring anal back.” Social media blew up with this realization, most people laughing if off as an unfortunate mistake.
A closer listen to the song reveals the actual line to be “I’m bring it all back,” which seems much more child appropriate. However, it is pretty funny to think that in an attempt to censor the word booty, Kidz Bop has created even more of an uproar. Listen to the song down below and see what you think about the Kidz Bop version.© 2016 The Classical Art, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
