AceShowbiz - The rumors are indeed true, everyone. After much anticipation, Little Mix unleashed a new song entitled "Woman Like Me" featuring Nicki Minaj on Thursday, October 11. The song serves as the lead single off the British girl group's upcoming album.
The female anthem finds Perry Edwards and her groupmates singing empowering lyrics and the Young Money femcee delivering a bossy verse. "I made a few mistakes, I regret it nightly/ I broke a couple hearts that I wear on my sleeve," Perrie and Jesy Nelson sing before Nicki comes in with her own verses, "You know all them mandem, my trife they swipe me/ Knotted up, he could afford to ice me."
Its release is accompanied with a lyric video of the song. The video gives off a retro vibe and features a mix of old-school clips as well as illustrations and bright, modern pops of color and text. It has been viewed more than 600,000 times since its release.
A music video for the song is coming soon. Previous source reported that the female musicians were filming its visuals in late last month.
The collaboration is a dream come true for Little Mix. The group has always been open about their love for Nicki and has always wanted to collaborate with her. Jesy said in an interview back in 2013, "We've been saying this for ages that Nicki Minaj is the person we all want to record with." Jade Thirlwall added, "If we say it enough it may happen. We always envisage a rapper on our music."
Their new album is expected to hit the shelves sometime in November and will feature more girl power anthem. "Definitely more girl power," Leigh-Anne Pinnock said of the upcoming effort. "Definitely more of that sort of inspirational message that we love to do."
