Songfacts®:

  • This upbeat pop banger finds Little Mix asking their love interest if he still thinks about them when they're not around. The girls are indeed thinking about him and missing their man's touch.
  • The song was written by frequent Little Mix collaborator Camille Purcell along with Frank Nobel and Linus Nordstrom. Purcell co-penned six of the LM5 tunes and appeared as a featured artist on "More Than Words" under her professional name of Kamille.
  • A remixed version of the song was released as LM5's second single with an added guest rap from Ty Dolla $ign. The Los Angeles native confirms in his bars that he is indeed "thinking about us," adding that he plans on showering his girl with designer goods.
  • Little Mix has form for re-working album tracks for their single release. Missy Elliot provided a guest rap on 2013's "How Ya Doin'?," and three years later Machine Gun Kelly was added to "No More Sad Songs." Then in 2017 Stormzy supplied additional vocals to "Power."
  • The song's steamy music video was directed by Bradley & Pablo, the pair behind Silk City's "Electricity" clip. Each Little Mix member gets a solo shine and there are also shots of them all together in an all-white dance party. Ty Dolla $ign makes an appearance for his verses.

    According to an Instagram post by the girls, their individual setups in the visual were inspired by lust (Leigh-Anne), new love (Perrie), ice (Jade), and passion (Jesy).
