“I need a man, a man who can act like a man/ So hear me now, I don’t get paid to babysit no one/ I’m out here lookin’ for the one to love/ Singin’, I need a man, so hear me now,” the tracks’ lyrics read.

“We’re actually friends with Emmalyn from G.R.L. and she loves the song,” Jade said. “I think every song is going to have a similar chord sequence, slightly similar lyrics, and melodies — you know, it happens all the time. But it doesn’t mean that they’re not both incredible songs.”
She added, “I think maybe because it was a girl band as well, people just like to have something negative to say.”
Perrie said, “I just think…stop trying to hop on the bandwagon, how about that?”
The 23-year-old singer opens up about how she felt after her broken engagement from Zayn Malik.
“After I split with my partner, out of the blue, I had nowhere to go, which was incredibly stressful,” Perrie wrote. “For a while I had no idea what to do.”
She continued, “I thought about renting but I’ve got dogs and cats, so that was no good. At the time we were promoting Black Magic, and while I was in America, things really hit me and I panicked. I realized I was homeless. I was crying every day, dreading coming back.”
“I told [my mom] I was stressed because I didn’t know what I should do about where to live once I got back to England,” Perrie wrote. “She arranged … for me to stay in [Modest! Management owner Richard Griffiths'] guest cottage for as long as I needed, until I got on my feet again. Thank God for him. I put all my stuff in storage, took my dogs and more or less lived out of a suitcase for a good month and a half.”
“Can’t believe it! Thank you so much to our lovely jubbly fans for getting us this just five days after release. To our team who have worked tirelessly on the #ShoutOutToMyEx campaign, especially this week to get the top spot! To my friends and family…after an awful week, something amazing has come out of it. And I do not know how I would ever cope without my sisters @jesymix14 @leigh_love_life @perrieeele ???? it doesn’t matter how shit things are, having these by my side always makes things a little better,” Jade reacted on Instagram.
She added, “This song is for anyone who’s had a bad break up and has come out better for it! ????????????#ShoutOutToMyEx. BRING ON THE GLORY DAYS.”
