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.
