"As a 24-year-old, I feel like I’m adulting now, and I was having a lot of experiences where I noticed people twice my age, or older than me, just weren’t respectful," she told McCabe in the SoCal Honda Sound Stage at AMP Radio. "And I just couldn’t understand that and I was just like, ‘We need a new anthem, like an R-E-S-P-E-C-T.’"

'No Excuses' may sound like a sweet pop tune on the surface, but the lyrics are signature Meghan Trainor sass. 

"I wanted to not be mean with it. I wanted it to sound fun and light and bubbly, but a cute way of, ‘Did you confuse me with someone else? Yo mama raised you better than that!’"
