UK foursome return with most magical single to date, previewing their next full-length!
Little Mix cast quite the spell with their brand new single "Black Magic" out now via SYCO/Columbia Records. Hot off recently co-writing "Pretty Girls" for Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea, the foursome sound fiercer than ever. The UK quartet—Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards, and Jade Thirlwall—first started capturing the hearts of listeners stateside with 2012's DNA before coming back in 2014 with another chart-topper Salute. Now, "Black Magic" builds on the incredible foundation they've architected, while adding a scintillating spark of new inspiration. The new track captures a peppiness that's truly timeless and boundless with the potential to really catapult the girls to the top in the U.S.
Each voice sounds pristine, volleying between a soulful swag and swinging R&B panache. Everything converges on that unshakable refrain though. They've got what you want, and they're really delivering it here. With bright and bristling production, it's the perfect anthem from the four-piece.
"Black Magic" stands out because the lyrics feel more personal and cinematic than most modern pop, while retaining the requisite catchiness to light up radio airwaves. This is one you won't be able to stop singing after just one listen. That's the spell of "Black Magic."
The summer begins now with Little Mix.
