  • -It was great, like, not traveling.

  • And if I felt sick, I'm like, "Well, at least I'm home,

  • I was so lucky for that.

  • And then the only bump in the road I had was

  • And it was just, like, the unknowing.

  • Like, I didn't know what it was. -I don't know what it is.

  • -And it's like a whole -- It's, like, a genetics thing.

  • Let's talk about your new album, "A Very Trainor Christmas."

  • This is your first ever Christmas album.

  • And I got to tell you, I love it.

  • It's a fantastic record, top to bottom.

  • It really is a family affair.

  • The whole family is involved in this album.

  • -Yeah, my older brother actually

  • took that picture in my living room.

  • -Wow. -Yeah.

  • And they wrote all the songs with me and my brother.

  • My little brother produced all the originals,

  • most of them, with me.

  • And my dad's playing piano

  • on "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."

  • I got my two cousins to come over.

  • And I told them, "I'm pregnant.

  • Also sing backgrounds on 'Rudolph.'"

  • You know? It was a big family project.

  • -How awesome is that?

  • It is 18 songs. It is jam-packed.

  • I mean, you get your money's worth with this one.

  • It's classics. -Yeah.

  • -But there's also some covers on here of, like,

  • you know -- I mean, there's brand-new ones.

  • But there's also covers.

  • "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas."

  • "Winter Wonderland."

  • "White Christmas" with Seth MacFarlane, by the way,

  • is the -- right now, it is number one

  • on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart.

  • -Whoo! I know! -Congratulations on that.

  • -Number one!

  • -That guy is unbelievable too. He's so talented.

  • -He's so good. -And funny.

  • But my favorite jam -- can you guess or no?

  • -Ugh. I don't know. Maybe, um...

  • Is it a cover or an original? -It's a cover.

  • -Okay. Is it "Last Christmas"?

  • -It's "Last Christmas."

  • -Oh!

  • -No one can cover -- -I got it!

  • -No one can cover that song and I go like, "Well, nice try."

  • This is fantastic, and I love not only your singing on it,

  • but the production and the way it starts

  • with like a "whu-whu-whu-whu-whu-whu-whu"

  • and then grows up and -- I go -- I love it.

  • I go, "Dude, she hit a home run with this one."

  • -I didn't realize how much pressure that would be.

  • A lot of people were like, "I really hate when people cover

  • this song, but you did a great job."

  • I was like, "Oh, my God." -It's a tough one to cover.

  • I think that one's a tou-- -It's tough.

  • -The other tough one is

  • The Waitresses' "Christmas Wrapping."

  • You can't really do it. -Yeah.

  • -Like The Waitresses did.

  • But this one was -- it's -- The whole record is great.

  • But I love the production on that.

  • Your voice is great. It's just perfect.

  • The keyboard. The sound is just great on that one.

  • I love that. -Thank you so much.

  • -The whole -- I just love Christmas albums too.

  • -Yeah, I love what you do with Dolly.

  • -[ Laughing ] Oh, my gosh. -Queen Dolly Parton.

  • It's great!

  • -We'll talk about that some other time.

  • I was sweating bombs.

  • I go, "I can't sing this song."

  • What's wrong with people? But it was so much fun.

  • It's Dolly. It was the best. -Yeah.

  • -But then you get -- you go,

  • "Great, here's a new song called 'Holidays,'

  • and here's Earth, Wind & Fire."

  • And I go --

  • It's just brilliant.

  • How'd the collaboration come about?

  • -I heard that -- they've always been so nice to me,

  • but I heard they would be willing to do

  • a duet with me on this album.

  • And I was like, "It has to be an original.

  • And I have to show my heroes like, 'You raised me.

  • You taught me what music is.

  • I'm going to make you proud.'"

  • And I got with my two favorite musicians,

  • Mike Sabath, Eddie Benjamin.

  • They're children. They're like 20 years old.

  • And we all, like, got together -- tested --

  • we're all safe -- got together,

  • and we wrote this song in an evening,

  • and we're like, "We just want it to be a party."

  • We studied their music. We played it all day.

  • -It's very Earth, Wind & Fire but perfectly you.

  • Perfectly you too 'cause I was like --

  • [ Vocalizes ] Dude, I was --

  • I mean, you know.

  • -We were like, "We have to have a horn section, a breakdown."

  • Like, it was math. -Yeah. But I love the song.

  • And you're performing it for us tonight,

  • which I'm very excited and thankful for.

  • We're very in the theme this year.

  • So I'm so thankful for that.

  • But first, you're always up for doing something fun on our show,

  • which we love about you.

  • When we come back, you and I are going to play

  • a musical game called "Google Translate Songs."

  • More with Meghan Trainor when we come back.

  • Stick around, everybody! -Whoo!

-My next guest is a Grammy-winning artist.
