Meghan Trainor Celebrates ‘Friends’ 25th Anniversary With “I’ll Be There For You” Cover
It’s been 25 years since the premiere of classic TV show Friends.
In honour and celebration of this, Meghan Trainor put out her cover of the show’s theme song, “I’ll Be There for You,” on Sunday night performing the full-length version of the tune that was initially made famous by the Rembrandts.
“Honored to be a part of @FriendsTV’s 25th anniversary and I’m geeked to see the @EmpireStateBldg lights goin off to my cover of ‘I’ll be there For You,'” Trainor shared on Twitter. “Available everywhere at midnight.”

The track was put out as the Empire State Building in New York City, where “Friends” took place, was lit red, yellow and blue, which are the colours of the “Friends” logo.
After the show’s premiere, the theme song became a hit, reaching No. 1, while the video became a sensation in the days before videos went viral, featuring the cast goofing off while the Rembrandts performed the hit song.
Trainor seems to be the perfect choice to give the song an update
The song will indeed be available for download on iTunes and other digital retailers but in the meantime, listen to the audio shared on Trainor’s YouTube channel:
