Little Mix are looking for recruits, but a fair warning: they run a tight ship. Like, human-leashes tight.
The British girl group just premiered their video for Salute,” and to use the word “fierce” wouldn’t quite do it justice.
Starting off with a slightly sinister and rather sexy spin of the “Taps” military, the clip takes the army commands “attention” and “salute” and uses them as a call to arms for ladies everywhere.
And “Salute” really is all about the fairer sex — but not the weaker one, they are sure to clarify. Jesy, Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne take center stage in a dance sequence set in what looks to be an abandoned office, while their male dancers stick to the background. Leigh-Anne gives a smug look from a throne. Jesy and Perrie Edwards even carry their men on leashes.
In essence, this is a girl’s anthem at its core, which is exactly told MTV News they were shooting for when we caught up with them earlier this year.
“I think we all absolutely love ‘Salute,’ ” Leigh-Anne said. “We all wanted to write a song — a real proper, empowering girl-power song for such a long time, and for this album we got it. We just love performing it and it kind of, it just sums us up.”
