“Let You Be Right” by Meghan Trainor
“Let You Be Right” is a song co-written and performed by American singer Meghan Trainor. In “Let You Be Right”, Trainor, who constantly finds herself fighting/arguing with her lover, decides to put an end to it. This time around, she’s going to compromise for the sake of the relationship by letting him be right.
She loves him so much and is afraid of losing him over something as trivial as an argument. So even though she feels she’s right, she’s just going to let him win the fight by letting him feel as though he’s right. In taking this move, she achieves two things. Firstly, she prevents an unnecessary fight between herself and her man. Secondly, she saves her relationship from collapsing.
