"Shout Out to My Ex" is the lead single from Little Mix's upcoming album, Glory Days. It's the ladies' first release since last year's Get Weird record, which yielded singles like "Black Magic," "Love Me Like You" and "Secret Love Song" with Jason Derulo. Little Mix takes exes to task on "Shout Out."
The song is a bouncy and breezy single that sees Little Mix find empowerment after heartbreak. The ladies seemingly touch on member Edwards' breakup with former One Direction singer Malik, who allegedly did it over text message. Perrie shows no mercy in addressing the situation, singing, "I hope she gettin' better sex / Hope she ain't fakin' it like I did, babe." Little Mix channels girl power into fuel for roasting former flames down to size on this biting bop.
The ladies premiered "Shout Out to My Ex" in a live performance on "The X Factor" U.K. It was certainly a rousing rendition of the track that is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. The Glory Days album will be released worldwide on Nov. 18. Little Mix will tour stateside next year as an opening act on Ariana Grande's Dangerous Woman Tour.
