Going Nowhere

Songfacts®:

  • This guitar-led Pop tune about kicking a bad boyfriend into touch was written by Little Mix with Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts. Speaking with Pop Justice, the group's Jesy Nelson called the process of working with Roberts "absolutely amazing," adding: "She's so lovely. That's one of our favourite songs on the album, so we were really lucky to have worked with her. I was really surprised, 'cause I didn't know she wrote songs. I wasn't aware. And then when she wrote 'Going Nowhere' for us, it was literally one of our favourite songs and we absolutely love it.
    "She's like the little dark horse of Girls Aloud, she's so talented."
