POP BITS. It’s one of the first rules of pop singles – if you already had an album out for a while, you’ll need a guest rapper on the fourth single (or is this the fifth – does ‘Cannonball’ count?) in order to make the ‘Single Version’ of a song different from the ‘Album Version’. That’s just a rule. So in ‘collaborations-we-never-thought-we’d-see’ news, Little Mix have enlisted the help of none other than global rap superstar Missy Elliott for their single ‘How Ya Doin”.
The obviously starstruck girls said, “we honestly can’t believe Missy is on our song! She’s been one of our biggest idols forever – it’s incredible. As soon as we thought there might be a chance she’d appear on the track we did literally everything we could to make sure it happened.” We don’t blame them. We think Missy will actually be a good fit for the funky-old-school single. Hopefully Missy’s involvement will turn some heads in the US and get the girls the global superstardom they deserve. The single will be released on our humble shores on 14th April. POP BITS OUT.
