G.R.L. Shades Little Mix
G.R.L. threw a little shade at Little Mix for ripping off their 2014 hit "Ugly Heart."

It looked like it was curtains for G.R.L. when Simone Battle tragically passed away in 2014. The ladies released a tribute single called “Lighthouse,” but disbanded shortly after and got to work on solo projects. (The most notable/notorious being Emmalyn Estrada’s “#FreeTitties”). But it wasn’t the end. The girl group reformed as a trio last year with a rejigged line-up of Lauren Bennett, Natasha Slayton and Jazzy Mejia — and casually dropped a new single in December.

Don’t be put off by the Microsoft Paint cover art or DIY music video. “Are We Good” is an A-Grade bop. Produced by Hook N Sling, the sexy banger is better than 90 percent of Fifth Harmony’s 7/27 or Little Mix’s Glory Days. This is a bouncy throwback to the Pussycat Dolls with attitude-filled lyrics and slick, dance floor-ready beats. Time will tell if G.R.L. can eek out an audience without the backing of a major, but they’re off to a pretty good start. Watch the bare-bones video up top or stream it below.
