LITTLE MIX – SALUTE //
‘Little Me’ is the second single to be taken from Little Mix’s incredible new album ‘Salute’. With hugely personal lyrics, ‘Little Me’ is a maturely written and confidently delivered song with a message of strength for the band’s fans.
‘Little Me’ sees the girls once again writing with hit makers TMS – reuniting the team behind smash hit singles ‘Wings’ and ‘DNA.’ Built around a sample taken from ‘Pavane’ by French composer Gabriel Fauré, Little Mix combine a soaring melody with crashing drumbeats straight out of ‘90s R&B – the result is a seriously modern mid-tempo pop treat with an inspirational and powerful message.
