The upbeat music, which can get anyone dancing, already debuted on Apple Music last October 15th, together with its video featuring Meghan Trainor and the well-loved Peanuts characters, Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Woodstock, Lucy, Linus, Sally, Schroeder, Pig Pen, Peppermint Patty, Marci, and Franklin.
It opens with a black-and-white scene that evokes a gloomy feeling among the characters, but then as Meghan Trainor sings with the Peanuts characters, the video slowly transitions to scenes with brilliant colors and everyone dances along. It’s lively and catchy, which children will surely love, but even adults will surely love to sing and dance along to this tune as well. According to Meghan Trainor, the song is about confidence, dreaming big, and learning to have fun, which is also the theme of The Peanuts Movie.
She also said that she enjoyed joining the Peanuts gang because she has been a huge fan of the cartoon ever since she was young. She said she remembers it being a hugely popular cartoon when she was growing up.
In fact, Meghan Trainor loved the animated version of herself that was made for her in the movie that she even used it as her cell phone wallpaper.
She couldn’t contain her excitement and she shared the photo immediately on Twitter, with a caption, “SO excited to be on the @peanutsmovie soundtrack! @snoopygrams even imagined a #Peanutized me!” “Don’t touch it, it’s perfect,” Trainor said recalling the time when they sent the animated picture to her. The soundtrack will also include the likes of Flo Rida, Owl City, and the Vince Guaraldi Trio, who also created some of the music in the original Peanuts TV special and movies. The Peanuts Movie is set to be released in November.
