What It Was Like for Meghan Trainor Working with Her Idol Jason Mraz

Meghan Trainor seized the opportunity to collaborate with her idol, Jason Mraz, on their new duet "More Than Friends."

While she usually over-prepares when she works with people she admires, with Jason she felt compelled to do the opposite. She explains to Billboard:

"I freak out when I’m going in [the studio] with artists, I usually prepare an entire song. I’ll just walk in with it and pretend like, 'Oh, what do you think?' For some reason with him, I didn’t prepare anything. I just knew we would crush it at writing an adorable pop song with a guitar.”

Adding: "When you’re with him, you can tell he’s not walking around with a big ego like, 'I’m Jason Mraz!' He’s just a regular, really nice person."

"More Than Friends" is out now.
