Did you know that Little Mix actually wrote the song “Pretty Girls,” which was recorded by Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea? Well, now they are explaining why they gave up the track.
“We’ve been away a while because we wrote an album, sat with the record label and we thought, ‘Nope, it’s not good enough’,” group member Jesy Nelson in an interview with The Sun. “We recorded a whole album but we’re perfectionists and knew we could do better. So we scrapped it and started again.”
“We wrote it with Maegan Cottone, who we’ve written a lot of this album with,” Jade Thirlwall added. “We loved the song but it wasn’t really for us so we put it out there and, lo and behold, Britney wanted it.”
DO YOU THINK that Little Mix should have recorded “Pretty Girls?”
The 21-year-old Little Mix singer says they haven’t set a date yet.
“I don’t know when the wedding will be,” Perrie told The Sun (via MTV). “We’re still planning it but I’m so busy with Little Mix now Black Magic is coming out. Me and Zayn want it to be perfect, so as soon as I have a bit of time we’ll plan it. I doubt it will be this summer – but I’ll let you know!”
As for Zayn quitting One Direction, Perrie said, “It’s nice to see more of him now. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen, he’s a great chef.”
“The message of ‘Black Magic’ is basically that we are the girls with the secret potion, and we’re going to give it to all the other girls that want to get the man they want,” Leigh-Anneshared about the track.
“It makes them fall in love,” Jesy added.
Leigh-Anne continued, “I think the potion is a little connotation for confidence. Just have a little bit of confidence and get your man!”
“Mixers!! So, it looks like the cat is officially out of the bag…we’ve just seen that our new artwork has leaked! A tiny bit gutted cos we wanted to reveal it to you ourselves but SOOOO happy you love it…the reaction so far has been amazing!! We recorded a little video for you to make the official announcement so here it is!” Little Mix wrote with the video below.
“Hey mixers! We just want to say the biggest thank you for all your incredible support over the last few months! You really are the best fan base any artist could ever ask for! This is our year mixers together we going to take over the world!” the band wrote on Twitter just last week.
