Review: Little Mix Sings About Love, Sisterhood and Female Empowerment on ‘LM5’

The quartet’s fifth studio album has THE girl power anthems of the year.

Little Mix has come a long way since they won The X Factor UK in 2011.

The four piece girl group comprised of Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson are back with their fifth studio album LM5 and it is the most impressive and mature project to date.

In a time where groups tend to disband after four years, Little Mix has managed to not only keep their original band members, but also stay relevant in local and international media with their catchy, chart topping hits. Released this past Friday (November 16), LM5 ticks most of modern pop’s boxes — from the presence of Ed Sheeran in the writing credits to the appearance of a vaguely Latin-themed track, “Love a Girl Right,” the LP has something everyone will love.

An evident theme throughout the entire record is female empowerment with woke af lyrics. From mocking a male voice singing “oh, you on that feminist tip” to powerful songs like “Woman Like Me,” “Woman’s World,” and “Told You So,” LM5 has THE girl-power anthems for 2018 that will have you and your squad running the world in no time.

Take a listen to LM5 below:
