Little Mix – Break Up Song

The world’s biggest girl group, Little Mix, have dropped new anthem “Break Up Song.”

Written by Jade, Perrie, and Leigh-Anne with Kamille, Frank Nobel and Linus Nordstrom, the track – about getting over a relationship – is a melody of swirling 80’s synths wrapped up by the band’s trademark stunning vocals.

On the upbeat single – taken from their as-yet-untitled sixth album – Little Mix channel a soundscape that transports listeners to another period in time, while getting candid about heartbreak in the lyrics: “So tonight, I’ll sing another, another break-up song / So turn it up, let it play on, and on, and on, and on” – reminding fans that it’s just “another break-up, and you’ll get over it!”

Reminiscent of the liberating energy of “Shout Out To My Ex” with the perkiness nonchalance of “Black Magic,” their latest offering is a glossy, bold pop moment peaking lyrically as they defiantly sing: “For all of the times they screwed us over” with the catchy and surprisingly exciting hook “Let it play on, and on, and on / Just another break-up song.”

With their exes on the backburner, Little Mix focuses on more positive things in 2020 including a huge summer tour in June and July, a headline show at London’s iconic Hyde Park for British Summertime on 6th July as well as a new TV Show.

The group had a mammoth 2019, winning their second Brit Award – this time for Best British Video for “Woman Like Me,” – as well as two Global Awards for Best Group and Best Song, and their 4th EMA Award for Best UK & Ireland Act. 2020 will see the band launching a brand-new TV series for BBC One, Little Mix: The Search – becoming mentors to a new wave of talent.

The series will follow the journey of individual singers becoming part of a band. The contestants will live and grow together with access to Little Mix’s inner circle who have contributed to their phenomenal success, including vocal coaches, songwriters, producers, and stylists.

The TV series will also be followed by a huge summer tour, with Little Mix set to play stadiums across the UK in June and July, including a massive headline show at London’s iconic Hyde Park for British Summertime on 6th July.

Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jade Thirlwall have established themselves as global icons of girl power having sold over 50 million records worldwide, collected over 17 million Spotify listeners, received over 3 billion Youtube views, and collated 12 billion streams worldwide. Pretty crazy stuff.

They’ve got a huge year in store for their fans, but for now, Little Mix are serving fans some newness by doing what they do best – making huge pop songs that take over the planet.
