On continuing on after Jesy Nelson’s departure to focus on her mental health:
“It’s still all systems go in Little Mix world,” Jade Thirlwall shares. “It’s just learning to adapt. I think it’s quite exciting. And we got off to a good start as a three by having our No. 1 single in the UK. That was like, ‘Oh wow, this is a good sign, good omen, that this year is going to be good for us.’”
On adapting in lockdown & their fans support:
“We had to launch our first single campaign during lockdown, which was pretty bizarre,” Thirlwall says of dropping “Break Up Song” in March last year. “It was all on social media and we had to find a way of adapting to the circumstances. Luckily we’ve got an amazing online fanbase who will lap up any social media content. So it was just about trying to move with the times and get through it. We really committed.”
On TikTok’s power on the music industry:
“It is a bit scary though. I don’t like that pressure knowing that it likely has to do well on TikTok for it to become a hit,” she shares. “It’s important for music now, though,” Thirlwall tells her. “Like ‘Sweet Melody’ taking off on TikTok, it means it will help it in the charts, which is insane that it has that power.”
On protecting their mental health by cutting out toxicity, starting with social media:
“If I had any advice for people, it would be to only follow accounts that make you feel good about yourself,” Thirlwall shares. “Or ones that don’t make you feel like you’re not enough or compare yourself to what that person’s doing.” Pinnock adds that she thinks this year for her has really been about dumping anything toxic from her life and “being around people that make you feel good and that bring something positive into your life.”
On therapy & how they can rely on each other:
Perrie shares, “We love going to therapy together. We also have each other, which is huge. We’re each other’s support system in a way because we’re sisters and feel every emotion together. We can always lean on each other.”
On working on future collaborations:
“We are in the studio at the moment doing different collab ideas,” Edwards shares. “Because we’ve just launched Confetti, it’s nice to experiment with different artists at the moment. I think we’re really into that at the minute, just featuring or jumping on someone’s track. I think it’s nice to have that little bridge after you’ve released an album to switch things up a little bit.”
