They may be a Little Mix, but they clearly have big ambitions.
Fresh from the success of recent single ‘Change Your Life’, Jesy, Jade, Leigh-Anne, and Perrie have announced its follow-up ‘How Ya Doin?’.
Most notably, though, the X Factor UK winners also revealed that the single version of the song (which samples De La Soul’s ‘Ring Ring Ring’) will feature Hip-Hop icon Missy Elliott.
Speaking on the collaboration, Little Mix said in a statement:
“We honestly can’t believe Missy is on our song! She’s been one of our biggest idols forever – it’s incredible. As soon as we thought there might be a chance she’d appear on the track we did literally everything we could to make sure it happened.”
The Missy feature is no doubt a major coup for the group, who are presently trying to “break” the US and other international markets. With their debut album ‘DNA’ set for global roll-out this year, help from a Hip-Hop icon who herself has worldwide success can only boost their cause.
