"I'm a Lady" is a song by American singer and songwriter Meghan Trainor. It was released on February 24, 2017, through Epic Records and Sony Music Entertainment for the upcoming movie, Smurfs: The Lost Village. The song was written and co-produced by Trainor and Martin Renea, with additional production being handled by The Monsters and the Strangerz.


Trainor announced the song at the 2016 KIIS-FM Jingle Ball, saying "It's an upbeat, 'love yourself' woman anthem. It goes like...'Cause I'm a lady...and then the BEAT DROPS!' It's pretty fire." Prior to "I'm a Lady"'s release, Trainor teased the song and the music video on her social media accounts. She announced the release date on February 21, 2017.

Critical receptionEdit

Mike Wass of Idolator stated that is a "return to the retro-pop of Title—albeit with the same verve and attitude that marked the Thank You era" and went on to say "the cute bop has a positive message and a campy spoken interlude towards the end."

Keeping in line with her consistent theme of female empowerment, Meghan Trainor has released the music video for her latest single, "I'm A Lady" (Mar. 3). The song will be featured on the soundtrack of Columbia Pictures' upcoming 3D animated feature Smurfs: The Lost Village.

The video itself features the "All About That Bass" singer in multiple costume changes and blonde hairstyles, leading jam sessions with either an all-female band or all-female back-up dancers. Trainor models the same feisty enthusiasm and a similar directing scheme showcased in the video for her 2016 post-bubblegum pop anthem "No".

The visuals also take on the sentiment of a Pepsi Super Bowl commercial, as Trainor is seen holding a football and wearing shoulder pads and athlete's eye black makeup.
