How Little Mix Turned Their ‘Glory Days’ Into an Album
Little Mix has always been a living example of girl power, but the British gals may have outdone themselves with their fourth LP, Glory Days.

In the year since the group released its previous album, Get Weird, every Little Mix member has been through ups and downs (whether together or individually), experiences that they weren’t just able to channel into songs — they were able to create an album they loved in record time. Billboard got a chance to catch up with the group’s Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock ahead of the big release, finding out why this album is so special to them and their hopes going into the Glory Days era.

“With Get Weird, it just didn’t seem to be working. Like we couldn’t get the right songs, it just wasn’t jelling,” Pinnock explains. “And this time around, I feel like we just had so much to write about it just happened. It felt natural.”

After recently denying rumours that her engagement to Jake Roche is over, it would make sense that Jesy Nelson wearing her engagement ring would garner attention.

After admitting that she was hungover from having partied the night before, the Move singer was the focus of much mockery on Twitter as she struggled to slice a baguette in half on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch.
