Background[change | change source]

In an interview with Digital Spy in March 2013, Little Mix said that they wanted their second album to have a more R&B sound.[2] Group member Jesy Nelson added: "I personally want to put a lot more dancey stuff in there. As in, one of the songs that comes on in a club that makes you want to dance. Not that David Guetta sound, but more R&B – a bit like Eve and Gwen Stefani's "Let Me Blow Ya Mind". They also revealed that they would be starting to write material for the album in the coming months.[2]
