The British girl group Little Mix have recorded material for four studio albums as well as non-album singles. They came to prominence after they won the eighth series of The X Factor in 2011, the first group to do so.[1] Members Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson originally entered the competition as solo acts, but were placed together to make a quartet during the initial stages of the auditions.[2] A cover of "Cannonball" by Damien Rice was released as their winner's single.[3]

After winning The X Factor, the group worked on their debut album, DNA, which was released on 19 November 2012. Its track "Wings" is a bubblegum pop and R&B song with elements of 1990s music.[4] Lyrically, it is about self-empowerment and following one's dreams.[5] The title track has a Gothic feel to it whereby Little Mix display a darker side to their personalities.[6] The group worked with former Girls Aloud member, Nicola Roberts, on the Latin-inspired "Going Nowhere" and featured Missy Elliott on the single release version of pop-funk track "How Ya Doin'?".[6][7] The latter track contains two samples: "Help Is On the Way" composed by James Stanley Carter and "Name and Number" written by Curiosity Killed the Cat.[8]

Little Mix's second studio album, Salute, was released on 8 November 2013. The group previously stated in March that the project would be more influenced by R&B than their previous album.[9] "Move" was released as the lead single, and described by Digital Spy writer Lewis Corner as setting up their new urban creative direction "nicely."[10] The title track makes use of a Blitzkrieg siren in its composition while lyrically it promotes female self-empowerment.[10] "Nothing Feels Like You" adopts a Carnival feel while "Good Enough" is a piano ballad which deals with the process of being rejected by someone you have feelings for.[10] The Guardian critic Harriet Gibsone described "Boy" as a revamped interpretation of N*SYNC's 2001 track "Gone".[11] In March 2014, the group released a cover of Cameo's 1986 single "Word Up!" as the official Sport Relief charity single.[12]

Get Weird, their third album, was released on 6 November 2015. With the exception of the "moody" trap track "Lightning", it saw the group return to a pop music style, though it was noted for its sexualised tone.[13][14] The song "A.D.I.D.A.S." is an acronym for "All Day I Dream About Sex" and alludes to the sexual act of cunnilingus and fellatio in its lyrics.[14] It also samples the line "hot love and emotion" from "Hold On, We're Going Home" performed by Drake; he, along with the song's other composers Noah "40" Shebib, Majid Al Maskati, Jordan Ullman and Anthony Jeffries, received songwriting credits as a result.[15] "Love Me Like You" is a retro-Motown track reminiscent of Shadow Morton's work.[14][16] NME writer Nick Levine noted that the lyrics "He was just a dick and I knew it" on "Hair" and "Your voice dropped and you thought you could handle me" on "Grown" were two examples of many "sassy" tracks on Get Weird.[14]
