Britain’s Little Mix are an exuberant, all-female pop and R&B outfit who shot to stardom after winning the eighth season of the British X Factor in 2011. Little Mix is made up of Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson. Their first single “Cannonball” skyrocketed to number one in the U.K. In 2012, they released their first full length album DNA, which hit the Top Five in both the U.S. and the U.K., and spawned the number one British single “Wings.”
Other popular records they have released include Salute in 2013 and Get Weird in 2015. The group has also released award-winning singles and hit album Glory Days and LM5. Additionally, Little Mix has also released headphones, a perfume brand, and clothing in UK high-street chain Primark.
In preparation of their new album, Confetti, which releases in November, they have released “Break Up Song,” and “Holiday.”
They are back with another release, “Not A Pop Song.” By the way, it is totally a pop song. But according to the lyrics, “This ain’t another pop song about falling in love, or a party song about drinks and drugs.” This song starts off with some compelling acoustic instrumentals. When the beat drops, you know that you have something special. Vocals are pretty outstanding in this new release. The harmonies are on point as well. Even if you listen in the background, there are some vocal acrobatics going on, which is very impressive.
Little Mix is known for putting out catchy songs that you will be singing for a while. This song is no exception. The chorus is probably one of the catchiest that I have heard in a while. “Not a Pop Song,” is going to be a chart topper in no time. It is a perfect addition to Confetti, which comes out in November. If you want a new song to add to your Get Up and Move, soundtrack, check out “Not a Pop Song,” below. It is available on all major streaming platforms. Confetti will be released on November 6th, 2020.
