The ladies in Little Mix revisited their high school prom days, if only for a little while, in their latest music video for "Love Me Like You," the second single off of their impending third studio album titled Get Weird.
The video follows band members Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock as they each try to come across the man of their dreams, while some come up short. "Love Me Like You" comes to a close with Thirwall and Nelson gallivanting with their second choice suitors while Pinnock and Edwards seem to avoid men and womanizers all together. Perrie Edwards, formerly engaged to ex-One Direction boy band member Zayn Malik, is shown wearing her engagement ring in the music video. The two are most definitely broken up but the time period in which the video was filmed makes perfect sense as to why the ring still sits on Edwards' finger.
As Billboard notes, the upbeat and happy melody paired with catchy sha-la-las are accompanied by the women singing: "They try to romance me / But you got that nasty / And that's what I want." The lyrics are a tad more risqué than usual for the former X Factor contestants. Taking musical strides away from their previous R&B influenced studio album, Salute, it seems this is a total nod to the eighties and its pop sound as heard in "Hair" and "Black Magic."
The "Love Me Like You" video has only been live for a number of hours but with Little Mix's large following, the video already reeled in a crazed 277,000 views on YouTube, The Mirror reports.
