“There are few artists as talented, joyful, and present as Meghan,” says Mraz. “She was very inspiring to work with.”

“I loved working with Jason,” says Trainor. “I had to pretend I wasn’t freaking out the whole time as I’m his biggest fan. Not only is he so talented, but he’s extremely humble and kind too.”
