Little Mix

So, I’m sorry to lump ex ‘X-Factor’ contestants Little Mix and Misha B into a single ‘reality show release’ summary, but it had to be done. Don’t ask why, it just did. Anyway. To reigning ‘X’ champs Little Mix first because, well… they did come first in the competition. The pop quartet have just set a release date for their first original single ‘Wings’, which is out via Sony’s Syco on 22 Jul. No one’s heard it yet, but there you go… 22 Jul.

And with that, it’s on to Misha B nee Bryan, who – despite finishing fourth in 2011’s ‘X’ contest and being accused of bullying – was also signed to Sony earlier this year. She’ll release her MNEK-produced debut single, ‘Home Run’, via the major’s Relentless Records imprint on 15 Jul.

Misha, who released a mixtape titled ‘Why, Hello World’ last month, enthuses thus about the new track: “It’s about that special someone who gets you so excited, so hyped that you lose control! When I perform it, I feel that same energy on stage – it makes you wanna dance! It is based on a ballad I wrote about my ex and I just changed it up to give it a fresh, fun vibe”.

Unlike Little Mix’s ‘Wings’, which is seemingly being kept back to up suspense, ‘Home Run’ is actually available to listen to right now. Hear it here:
