The Brit hitmakers, Little Mix, kicked off their significant milestone of 10 years as a widely successful girl band composed of Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and formerly, Jesy Nelson, who parted ways in December of 2020. Their lyrics are often centred around feminism, gender equality, body positivity, LGBTQ+ rights, and sexism. On behalf of those amazing life-changing 10 years, they composed their legendary seventh studio album, Between Us, including their biggest bops alongside with five brand new tracks that negotiate their fans down through a memory lane of their sisterhood, friendship, and infinite love for their fan base, Mixers. The promotional track from Little Mix's album of the same name is "Between Us." It was released on November 5th, 2021 through RCA. The music video for this breathtaking track was released on December 2nd, 2021 with a message announcing a hiatus after the confetti tour. Make a way to the music review of Between Us, Little Mix.

[Verse 1: Jade]

When the curtains close and all of the lights go down

Safe to say I'll stay, I will always stick around

And I will fix your crown

And if you're knocked, I'm your rock

I won't stop, you will never be in doubt, in doubt

 

In this verse, the girls assure the listeners and each other that they will stick together as always as if someone who has each other’s back and will always be out there. There’s a great quote that says, "Real Queens always fix each other’s crowns," with the meaning that women are more powerful when they work together. Collaboration is embraced when competitiveness is left behind, and the girls certify that they won’t be stopped from standing for each other and will never leave anyone in doubt. 

[Pre-Chorus: Leigh-Anne]

Like, damn, we got history

Shared every misery

Lived every victory

Yeah, we got synergy

If they hurt you, they hurting me

That's just the way it be

We walked through the fire

And as the flames got higher

It made us survivors

Yeah, it made us fighters, fighters

 

Little Mix is one of the greatest, most influential, best-selling, and biggest girl groups of all time, with over 65 million records sold globally. They became the first girl group to win a Brit Award for the best British group. In 2018, Forbes named them as one of the most influential acts in Europe. They are listed by Debrett’s as one of the most influential people in the UK with a net worth of £60 million. Their accolades include two Brit Awards, seven MTV Europe Music Awards [the most wins for Best UK & Ireland Act], two Japanese Gold Disc Awards, four Glamour Awards, an iHeartRadio Music Award, and three Guinness World Records. The group have released six studio albums, five of which have been certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry. In 2018, they became the first girl group to have five consecutive top-five studio albums in the United Kingdom. On Twitter, Perrie Edwards explained why this is her favourite line from the song: "Yeah, we got synergy, if they hurt you, they hurting me" We literally feel each other’s emotions 24/7, if one of us is hurting, we’re all hurting. And we’re all in sync; we dress and speak the same without even realizing it. But that’s 10 years of friendship and sisterhood right there. Meanwhile, Jade Thirlwall added, "Everything we’ve been through, we’ve been through it together." I feel like I always know when one of you are hurting or going through something, without even seeing you.

 

[Chorus: Perrie]

So here's my vow

Starting from herе and now

Nothing comes between us

Nothing comes bеtween us

I swear that we won't lose this thing we've found

'Cause love will never leave us

Nothing comes between us, between us

In this chorus, they are giving an oath or a vow to comfort each other during times of joy and sorrow, to stay together strongly, to fight and love each other unconditionally as well as wholeheartedly, so nothing will interrupt their friendship and sisterhood.

 

[Post-Chorus: All, Perrie]

Us, us, us

(Nothing comes between us)

Us, us, us

The girls are singing this post-chorus in sync.

 

[Verse 2: Leigh-Anne, Jade, Perrie]

Remember the day when we finally found our wings?

It changed our lives, gave us power to do anything (Anything)

And every time they break us down (Break us down)

Huh, we bounce back, every track, had your back

So you'll never be in doubt (Never be in), doubt

 

This verse probably refers to the day that they won X-Factor in 2011, which made a huge powerful turning point in their lives to singing and just like angels with wings to touch the hearts of their faithful fans and other listeners to empower them. They heal people with strong, dominant and calming vocals. On the other hand, when others try to grieve for them, they fight together and hold each other up, so no one will leave a question mark.

 

 

[Pre-Chorus:] continues…

[Chorus]continues…

[Post-Chorus: All, Perrie, Jade, Leigh-Anne] continues…

[Bridge: Jade, Perrie] continues…

[Chorus: Leigh-Anne, Leigh-Anne & Perrie, Jade, All] continues…

[Post-Chorus: All, Perrie, Jade, Leigh-Anne] continues…

 

[Outro: All, Jade]

When the curtains close and all of the lights go down (Down)

Safe to say I'll stay, I will always stick around

They will stay together, backing each other and fulfilling their life goals of being sisters and friends for life.

 

Thank you, Girls.
