Little Mix's Jesy 'Cried' Over Missy Elliott Collab
EXCLUSIVE! Girlband tell us all about their new single...
The collaboration was another top 20 single for girl group, with Jesy exclusively telling MTV News UK that the hook-up was a dream come true.
She stated: "Having Missy Elliott on our track literally means everything to us. She's been my idol since I was little, I literally adore her, and every single interview that would ask who's your dream collaboration to work with, I'd always say Missy Elliott.
"We've all wanted to work with her, she's just a legend. And something you dream of, that you never think is going to happen, and then when it did, I cried my eyes out, we were just in shock."
Jesy continued: "To actually just hear her and see her and then when we first heard the rap, I cried. And to see her in our video just gave me goosebumps because she's just a ledge!"
Leigh-Anne agreed: "She was just so sick as well. So good!", with Perrie Edwards concluding: "What a woman! We're very lucky girls!"
The girls - who won the 2011 series of The X Factor - also had some words of advice for this year's hopefuls, with Jade stating: "I think people who want to audition for The X Factor and stuff these days, if they wanna make their mark, they need to be confident.
"To stand out, make sure you pick a song that they won’t expect you to do… I think that’s what they liked about us... Just be yourself really, and then you can’t go wrong."
Little Mix's new single How Ya Doin? is out now!
