Little Mix Preaches Independence & Self-Love On “The Cure”
It has been an interesting week for Little Mix. The girl group parted ways with Syco (their UK label) over a disagreement about the songwriting credits on recent single, “Woman Like Me,” and faced Simon Cowell’s wrath in the tabloids. Happily, the situation hasn’t affected the rollout of LM5. The girl group’s aptly-titled 5th LP arrives on Friday (November 16) and, if the buzz tracks are any indication, it’s shaping up to be their best yet. The ladies unveiled another one today called “The Cure.”
Not a Lady Gaga cover, the anthem finds Little Mix reuniting with TMS — the producers behind “Wings” and “DNA.” They obviously share a special chemistry because “The Cure” is another winner. “Now it’s me and myself, don’t need no one else,” Jesy, Leigh-Anne, Jade and Perrie sing in a verse. “This happiness was always inside me, but Lord it took a minute to find me.” The mid-tempo ballad really soars on the chorus, which preaches independence and self-love. “I was a little far gone but I’m not anymore, It’s alright now baby I’ve got the cure.” Listen below.
