It's Official: Little Mix is Coming to America!

Just over a year since they won The X Factor, Little Mix are on their way to superstardom after signing a deal with US record label Columbia, which also houses their Syco labelmates One Direction.

Perhaps inspired by The Saturdays who also inked a deal with Island Def Jam in the US in October, Little Mix will be releasing debut single 'Wings' as their first American release under the same label that looks after One Direction, Adele and Beyonce.

Announcing the news in an interview with US magazine Twist, Jade Thirwall said: "We want to show everybody what we're about and bring out our first single over here."

"'Wings' is the perfect introduction to Little Mix and what we're all about, so we can't wait to show it to everybody in America!"

Jesy Nelson says they chose 'Wings' as their debut single in the States as it boasts an "uplifting message."

"We wanted our first single to be a song that meant something to us, but also meant a lot to our fans," Jesy told the magazine.

"We wanted an uplifting message about believing in yourself, listening to what your mum says (because she's always right!) and just not letting any negativity bring you down."

Since becoming the first group to win The X Factor in 2011, Little Mix have achieved two number one singles and a top five album with their debut record, DNA.


Can't wait for everyone here to fall in love with the adorableness that is Jade Thirlwall

I like their album, but I don't think it's strong for our market.

wup, i was under the impression they were already trying here

one of my sister's students (she's a vocal coach) requested to do wings a few months back and i was like "how da fuck she know who they are"

this just makes me even more sad that they didn't try breaking my Aloud in the States. Granted, that music would not have flied in 2003, but it would have been glorious nonetheless.

They look like they are rather squeaky and Cher Lloyd-esque. If someone assures me that is not the case, I will give them a listen.

Sorry to say, but they don't look like girls that American preteen and teen girls (=main girl group audience market) would idolize.

i've had their album for maybe two weeks now and have completely fallen in love with them. i watched their entire x factor journey the other day and balled like a baby when they won. THEY ARE PERFECT.
