Charging onto the charts Friday 24th July, Little Mix dropped a summery, vibrant new single to the delight of their fans. Entitled Holiday, the single follows the March released Break Up Song, both tracks taken from the girl band’s forthcoming album. The girl group tweeted excitedly about their new single, saying “We’re so proud of this one…hope it takes you all on a much-needed getaway.”
Little Mix also released the accompanying video to Holiday on Friday 24th July. Posting to their official YouTube channel, Little Mix gifted a mermaid-themed lyric video to their 13.7m YouTube subscribers. With a whopping 654,000 views and 9,000 comments already, the lyric video is already widely popular within Little Mix’s extensive fanbase.
An up-tempo, energetic track, the sunny, poppy Holiday has all the qualities to be another chart favourite by Little Mix. The first two verses of Holiday are led by Jesy and Leigh-Anne singing solos, demonstrating brilliantly their individual vocal prowesses. Jesy and Leigh-Anne sing sultry lyrics like “When it’s cold, you pull me closer/So hot, it’s like the middle of July” and “I’ve been looking for the feeling, looking all my life” making the track both romantic and empowering.
Jade and Perrie lead the catchy chorus with “We’re just dancing the night away/Boy, you feel like a holiday”, the playful comparisons between boys and vacations in Holiday make the single sizzle with Girl Power. Famed for their strong vocals, Holiday blends the four singers’ powerful yet distinctly different voices together with ease.
In wake of their latest release, the Shoutout To My Ex singers also posted a sweet compilation video of fans’ reactions to Holiday on their Instagram account yesterday. Gaining over 119,000 views, the video featured hilarious fan receptions to the new single, the funny clip being met with a delighted reaction from fans. Jesy Nelson posted a glamourous photo on her personal Instagram account to promote the single, captioning the post “Happy Holiday release day!”, which has already gathered over 200,000 likes.
Girl group Little Mix consists of members Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirwall and Jesy Nelson. Formed in 2011, Little Mix came together through the X Factor after auditioning as solo singers. Not only are they the first group to win X-Factor, Little Mix are also the show’s most globally successful artists.
Since their X Factor victory nearly ten years ago, Little Mix have released five hugely successful albums. Following their debut album DNA (2012) came Salute (2013), Get Weird (2015) Glory Days (2017), and LM5 (2018), all peaking within the Top 10 charts of ten countries, including the UK and the USA. Rumoured to be titled LM6, Little Mix’s sixth studio album will arrive in 2021, coinciding with the group’s 10 year anniversary. Speaking with The Sun recently, Jesy Nelson relayed that “It doesn’t feel like ten years. Well, it does and it doesn’t. It’s crazy.” When asked about celebrating the band’s important milestone, Nelson added that “Whether it be A Night With Little Mix where we do a big show or a special ten-year tour…we’d definitely like to do something!”
