Little Mix‘s remix of CNCO‘s “Reggaetón Lento” has been racking up insane numbers on YouTube since its release. Backstage at this year’s iHeartRadio Festival, the British girl group broke down exactly how that collaboration came to be.
“We noticed that they had billions of views on that song — and we love it, it’s such a bop,” Perrie Edwards explains. “Our Latin label came to us with an idea: ‘How do you feel about collaborating with CNCO?’ We heard the song and we had to make the song our own as well. It was just so much fun singing in Spanish. We love learning other languages.”
Ever since they burst onto the scene in 2011, Little Mix have been known for empowering girls with positivity and self love.
“We want to encourage girls to just love themselves for who they are,” Jade Thirwall says. “We wanted to create music that give girls confidence and hopefully we’ve achieved that.”
