A.D.I.D.A.S.

Album: Get Weird (2015)
  • Not a reference to the German sports clothing and accessories company, the song title stands for "All Day I Dream About Sex." However, despite the adult subject matter of the lyrics, Little Mix keep their pre-teen fan base on board by replacing the word "sex" with "sshh."
  • When Jade Thirlwall sings "While we listen to Drake, we on that hot love and emotion," the melody and lyric reference the Toronto rapper's "Hold On We're Going Home."
  • The song title is not an original idea. Back in 1996 Nu Metal band Korn released a single "A.D.I.D.A.S." whose title also stands for 'All Day I Dream About Sex.'
