Little Mix, the latest and greatest girl group to come from across the pond, are gearing up for their third studio album this year, and they've got a new song to help stir the hype-cauldron. If their last records' lead singles ("Wings" and "Move") weren't indication enough, the quartet look prepped with yet another LP of pristine pop tracks.
"Black Magic" is an '80s-pop-inspired stomper that recalls some of the best British girl groups. We're getting some Spice Girls from the lyrics about helping their fellow woman, the uber-saccharine chorus recalls early-'00s acts like "C'est la Vie" singers B*Witched, the super-tight harmonies give us early Sugababes flashbacks, and the feel-good, throwback vibe recalls some of Girls Aloud's best, vintage-inspired singles.
While the girls haven't had a huge single in the U.S. like their male contemporaries One Direction, an awesomely nostalgic video is usually a smart play for landing a worldwide hit. Just ask Iggy Azalea, who hit video gold with "Pretty Girls," "Fancy" and "Black Widow."
