Little Me

Album: Salute (2013)
Charted: 14

Songfacts®:

  • This stripped-back ballad finds Little Mix singing about what they'd say to their younger selves, given the chance. They would encourage their 'little mes' to speak up for themselves and stand tall.
  • This samples at the start and end of the song the melody from French composer Faure's "Pavane." The Wimbledon Choral Society's recording of the 1887 classical work reached #20 in the UK Singles Chart after being used by the BBC as the theme for their coverage of the 1998 World Cup.
  • Little Mix's Jesy explained to The Metro that the girls wrote the track as advice for their young fans: "Little Me is about how there are so many things you used to worry about when you were little," she said. "Just the stupidest little things, and then as you get older you just think back and go 'I wish I'd have done this or I wish I'd done that.'"
