“No” is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor for her second major-label studio album, Thank You (2016). The song was released on March 4, 2016, as the lead single from the album. Produced by Ricky Reed, he co-wrote the song with Trainor and Jacob Kasher. Backed by an instrumental of ripping guitars, the dance-pop and R&B song draws influences from doo-wop and pop, with lyrics about men who “can’t take the hint” when their advances towards women are rejected. Its composition was compared by several critics to Jive Records artists of the early 2000s, namely Britney Spears and NSYNC.
