Little Mix fans are loving the racier lyrics on their new album Confetti, which was released last Friday and is pretty much littered with cheeky sexual innuendos.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk before Little Mix host the MTV EMAs tonight, singer Perrie Edwards explained how the band compromise between singing about sex and being mindful of their younger fans.
‘I think there’s a way of doing it, there’s being really cheeky and being a bit naughty but not full out saying it,’ she said.
‘It’s just getting clever with the lyrics and I think we’ve done that a lot in the past because we know we have a young fan base but we’re women.’
She went on to note that Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson are both 29 and approaching the big 3-0 so naturally want to embrace being a woman and all that comes with owning their sexuality.
‘So two of us being 30 in the group…,’ Perrie said as Leigh-Anne feigned horror at her age being revealed, saying in faux shock: ‘Thanks for telling everyone.’
Perrie, 27, continued: ‘We’re mature women, we want to talk about naughty things but we like to respect our fans as well.’
Rendezvous features the Little Mix ladies spelling it out to a lover (or rather a booty call) that they’re in the mood.
They sing: ‘Time for two? I ain’t tryna fall in love with you, just tryna do a rendezvous. And you already know the time and place, come see me face to face.’
On Nothing But My Feelings, the girls explicitly lay out the terms of a one-night-stand, singing: ‘I know that we will never work out, but if you’re looking for a workout, you should come round.’
The singers are all currently smitten and in love with Leigh-Anne engaged to footballer Andre Gray, Perrie in a three-year relationship with Liverpool star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jesy dating Our Girl actor Sean Sagar and Jade Thirwall romancing Rizzle Kicks star Jordan Stephens.
Little Mix are set to host the MTV Europe Music Awards tonight at 8pm. They’ll also be performing their new single Sweet Melody.
It was previously confirmed that Jesy has pulled out of the show due to an illness.
