British girl group Little Mix have released their latest video for the single “No More Sad Songs.” The version of the song featured in the video differs from the one on the album, as it features a rap by Machine Gun Kelly in place of a verse by the group’s own Jesy Nelson. Released as a remixed version of the original off their 2016 album Glory Days, the song and video hit Youtube on March 29, 2017 and as of this writing has broken 3.5 million views in less than 24 hours.
The video features the ladies of Little Mix making themselves at home donned in cowboy attire in a country western bar. From dancing with the men in the bar to riding mechanical bulls and dancing on the bar, the video is a little bit country and a little bit Coyote Ugly. The song itself has song-of-the-Summer potential with its reggae-infused beats and cool synth accents under rhythmic drums. It’s a body-moving, danceable groove that will easily find its way on party and club playlists soon.
Little Mix just released Glory Days on November 8, 2016, but Machine Gun Kelly (also known as MGK) is preparing to release his third album this year. The Cleveland rapper has been gaining mainstream notoriety in recent years from his collaborations with other artists, but MGK has been around since 2006. Most recently, MGK gained incredible traction off his singles “Bad Things” featuring Camila Cabello which hit No.4 on the Billboard Hot 100. His latest single, “At My Best” featuring Hailee Steinfeld was released on March 16 and has been racking up plays on Spotify, currently approaching 8 million plays.
