Little Mix are Taking a Break and I'm Fine (No I'm Not)

Sunday, December 5, 2021

It's taken me a few days to process this since they made their announcement.

I love Little Mix, and I genuinely think they are one of the best girl groups of all time. They have earned that distinction over the last ten years, starting with being the first group to win X Factor UK, and breaking the girl group curse while they were at it, and ending with becoming the first girl group to win Best Group at the BRIT Awards in its 43 year history.

They were an act in the British Invasion of the 2010s that, along with their fellow X Factor UK contestants to try to break the US, lived in the shadow of One Direction. But, while they never truly broke America, they do have a strong fan base here.

So now I’m sad, but they’re still touring next year so we’ll get to see them perform. And I’d like to hear the new arrangements now that that fourth member has left the group.

I am looking forward to what Perrie, Jade, and Leigh-Anne do next. They’re all expected to do solo music. Perrie and Leigh-Anne have their babies and fashion lines. Leigh-Anne just made her acting debut in Boxing Day, a new holiday rom-com. But the girl I’m most interested in following is Jade, for many reasons. The first one is the obvious one, she’s my favorite and has my favorite voice in the group. The second reason is that she is the member that has been making more moves as a songwriter during her time in Little Mix. She signed a publishing deal and has sold songs to other artists, including one to K-Pop girl group TWICE.

I will be mourning the group, but I have hope that we'll see them together again. And until we do, I can't wait to see what each member does next.
