"I'm a Lady" is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor to promote the film Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017). Epic Records released it as a single on February 24, 2017. Trainor co-wrote and co-produced the song with Martin René, and additional production from the Monsters and the Strangerz. "I'm a Lady" is a pop song that has a positive message and a campy spoken interlude.
Meghan Trainor announced the song at the 2016 KIIS-FM Jingle Ball, saying "It's an upbeat, 'love yourself' woman anthem. It goes like...'Cause I'm a lady...and then the BEAT DROPS!' It's pretty fire." Prior to "I'm a Lady"'s release, Trainor teased the song and the music video on her social media accounts. She announced the release date on February 21, 2017.
Critics stated that is a "return to the retro-pop of Title—albeit with the same verve and attitude that marked the Thank You era" and one of them wrote "the cute bop has a positive message and a campy spoken interlude towards the end."
A music video for the song was released on March 3, 2017 at Vevo, directed by Hannah Lux Davis. The video sees Trainor performing with a band in a warehouse. This is interspersed with scenes of women succeeding in several walks of life, including: a boardroom, wearing a football uniform, shooting archery and lifting wights. The video was described by a critic as "Women can be whatever the hell they want to be. Oh, and in case you were wondering — no, there are absolutely zero men in this video. Only girls”.
