Little Mix sign US record deal
Little Mix are hoping to make it big in the US after signing a record deal with One Direction's Stateside label Columbia.
The girlband are set to release hit track Wings as their debut single across the pond and reckon the song sums up what they represent.
Jade Thirlwall told US magazine Twist: "We want to show everybody what we're about and bring out our first single over here.
"Wings is the perfect introduction to Little Mix and what we're all about, so we can't wait to show it to everybody in America!"
Jesy Nelson added: "We wanted our first single to be a song that meant something to us, but also meant a lot to our fans.
"We wanted an uplifting message about believing in yourself, listening to what your mum says (because she's always right!) and just not letting any negativity bring you down."
The girls follow in the footsteps of The Saturdays, who are also hoping to crack the notoriously tough US market through their E! reality show Chasing The Saturdays.
