New Song: Little Mix – ‘Word Up!’ {New Single}

Published: Tuesday 21st Jan 2014 by Sam

The ladies of Little Mix have been tapped to front this year’s BBC Sports Relief campaign. And so as to raise money for the charitable cause have released a cover of Cameo’s classic ‘Word Up!’

Premiered today, the proceeds from the song’s sales will go towards efforts to relieve poverty in some of the world’s poorest countries – a drive other celebrities are helping with by performing sponsored sports challenges.

Is the their version of the 80’s smash a hit or miss? Find out below!

What a welcome surprise!

We’re often advocates for not touching such classic tracks, however Little Mix delivered and then some. From the lush harmonies, to diva-soaked delivery, to the respect paid to the original’s iconic guitar riffs, this was more than a Glee-flavoured rehash. The ladies served up a tantalising new slant on a much-loved gem, proving in the process that they bring to the table “edge” that demands attention.

Great track.

      Molly why are you such an ugly mad black girl for your just a racist black girl who needs to get a life!

    LOL you’re clueless sweetie.

    That “black girl” isn’t going anywhere. Her name is Leigh-Anne, learn that before you post rubbish.

    She isn’t even the strongest singer, as much as I like her.

    You should worry about that thing in your avatar though. Future got her knocked up?

  3. Molly January 21, 2014

    And you should be worried about getting XO into the top 40.

    Quit being a hating ass b****, Ciara’s going to nowhere land just like Maggie
    And the ferocious beast. Like Xo said Leigh-Ann isn’t even the strongest IMO
    Perrie is and besides these girls haven’t released their music or album to American
    Charts their still promoting in the Uk ” where they’re winning ” in their OWN country

    Never heard of them, but they could all get the D. And I love Cameo, cool to hear a girl group doing their music.

    This is a cute track! But damn, you ladies picked the wrong time to try and make it. Danity Kane is back and they’re about to s*** all over 5th Lobotomy and Little Merkin. Anyway, I can see myself bumping to this if I’m not able to fall asleep or something.
