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 them and would love to see them have some success here. But I just can't see it happening, especially with their style and the music they've put out so far.

So I love the video for Kiss You because it's basically like if you took the photo shoot segment in Spiceworld and replaced the Spice Girls with One Direction.

Kiss You is a flawless masterpiece of cheese- its such a mess but I love it. Even though Zayn is my fav, Harry covering up his 4 nipples killed me.

Also 1D needs to do their own Spiceworld, like, right now.
