Little Mix are following up their absolutely brilliant lead single “Move” by releasing their sophomore LP Salute November 11 in the UK, and in anticipation of that, they’ve unveiled a new song from the upcoming set — and it’s a thrilling throwback to ’90s R&B, like hearing your favorite Destiny’s Child and Aaliyah songs for the first time. It’s not just nostalgic — it sounds like an artifact of the times.

The half-acapella, half-finger-snapped “Boy” plays like classic Timbaland (“Are U That Somebody?” being the most obvious comparison), while the girls’ vocals and harmonies merge gloriously for an eerie effect.

Of equal import: “Salute” is tipped for a release in the United States on February 4, which gives them more than enough time to become massive stars on this side of the pond.

Listen below.

    This gave me chills. True late 90′s/millenium throwback. I’m hearing Destiny’s Child, Aaliyah, The Dream and N’Sync all rolled up in one.
