No. 1 song 'All About That Bass' written by Baltimore native

The country's No. 1 song, Meghan Trainor's celebration of curves known as "All About That Bass," was co-written and produced by Baltimore-native Kevin Kadish.

Released in early June, the song — which Kadish wrote with Trainor — entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 84 on July 26. It climbed to the top in mid-September, and has held the No. 1 spot since. Check out the video (The song has explicit language.)

Earlier this month, Kadish told the Hollywood Journal he "had the title for a few years." The University of Maryland, College Park graduate spent years on the road as a struggling singer-songwriter, but broke into the songwriting industry with Warner Chappell Music in 2000. Since then, he's worked with national artists (Jason Mraz, Miley Cyrus) and bands with local connections (O.A.R., Charm City Devils).
