    was released on Trainor's 2014 Title EP. The song features kitschy lyricsabout antiquated gender roles, with Trainor trading doing the grocery shopping for dates and flowers.

    Trainor is no stranger to receiving criticism about her lyrics. Her debut single "All About That Bass," which

    peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for eight weeks last year, got similar criticism from feminists for

    shaming skinny women and relying on men for positive body image.
