Ever since appearing on The X Factor, the girl band, Little Mix has become one of the most successful and beloved bands of the decade.
Their success to stardom was quick after the music show in 2011 and despite the departure of Jesy Nelson from their band, the group will be continuing to make music together. however, the band has opened up about their success in the industry.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall, and Perrie Edwards revealed that they have never allowed anyone to take the lead in the group. This is even after bosses had tried to make them do so. Jesy’s departure does not encourage them to change their ways.
In a new interview, Jade shared they have always had the same vision and they always wanted to be equals. She said, “We have always had the same vision, we always wanted to be equal. Nobody wanted to outshine someone else.”
The singer further explained whenever that starts to happen in a group dynamic, the break starts to show. She said it seems like someone has a bit more ego but clarifies that they have always been determined to be equal. Jade said, “The moment that happens in a group dynamic, the cracks start to show like someone has a bit more of an ego. We have always been determined to remain equal people on our team, whoever else has suggested otherwise.”
The Little Mix bandmate further added that they have said no and they are aware of what works better. She said it is healthier for them to do that and it has got them where they are now. And the singer admitted that all the band members have the “same ambition” and “the same agenda”.
“A few times we have felt pushed into a direction or a song.”
The band has earned a total of five number-one singles and six Top Ten albums with the help of the latest remix of their hit Confetti. Perrie had confirmed that the band had no intention of holding back any time soon. She also admitted that there is a lot going on as Jade went on to explain how they have had more control over what they do.
She said: “A few times we have felt pushed into a direction or a song. Almost like a bribe, like ‘if you don’t do this song you can’t have that’. The singer shared there was a point where that was happening which was a bit unsettling. Meanwhile, Leigh-Anne confessed on the Zach Sang radio show that the band has become more confident for the last 10 years.
She also commented that the band has a “sod the trolls” mentality now and revealed, “negative comments don’t phase you”.
