Songfacts®:

  • Little Mix has been empowering women since they first formed in 2011, and true to form they sing of self-love here.

    I been spendin' time on everybody else
    It's time I did it for me
    Love, sweet love


    Because they understand themselves better than any man does, the girls find self-love is the best way to make themselves happy.
  • Little Mix released this upbeat song on September 3, 2021 as the lead single from their greatest hits album Between Us. Other tracks on the collection with a girl power theme include "Salute," "Power," and "The Cure."
  • Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock wrote the song with regular collaborator MNEK. Lauren Aquilina (Plested's "Beautiful & Brutal," Rina Sawayama's "Lucid") and Sakima (Regard's "You," Benny Benassi and Jeremih's "Lovelife") also contributed to the writing.

    Morcheeba's Skye, Ross Godfrey and Paul Godfrey get writing credits too, as it samples their 2000 track "Love Sweet Love."
  • MNEK and Sakima co-produced the song and played all the instruments between them.
  • There is a TikTok challenge for "Love (Sweet Love)." The three mixers asked their fans to make a video with this song showcasing their biggest achievements.
  • Samuel Douek directed the video, which finds Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, both visibly pregnant, sitting on thrones alongside Jade Thirlwall. Leigh-Anne Pinnock gave birth to twins on August 16, 2021, while Perrie welcomed her baby five days later.

    Douek previously teamed up with Little Mix for the visuals for their single, "Confetti," and the Galantic collaboration, "Heartbreak Anthem."
