Album: Get Weird (2015)
Charted: 72

Songfacts®:

  • This bouncy empowerment anthem was co-written by Jess Glynne, who has achieved a few chart-toppers of her own, including the solo singles "Hold My Hand" and "Don't Be So Hard On Yourself."
  • The track finds Little Mix singing about a girl who was never noticed when they were younger but is getting plenty of looks now. "This song is about when you're at school or younger and you really fancy someone and they want nothing to do with you," explained the group's Jade Thirlwall. "They give you no time of day… you haven't blossomed yet."
  • Little Mix first performed "Grown" during their Apple Music Festival show on September 22, 2015, when they supported One Direction.
