FINALLY! After a week-long wait, ‘Heartbreak Anthem‘ has dropped. The monster collab from Little Mix, Galantis, and David Guetta has arrived just in time for the summer. It has every possibility to become a song of the season – we’ve already had it on repeat since it dropped, so you know it has our seal of approval.
If you were expecting a sorrowful song to cry to, you couldn’t be further from the truth as this club-friendly banger is constructed of vivacious production as the girls’ gorgeous harmonies sing of resilience. It’s the perfect pick-me-up for anyone dwelling over failed relationships to unleash a new lease of life and start afresh. It makes us want to get dolled up, get our besties together, take some selfies and let people swoon over us on a night out. In reality, we’re just dancing around our rooms with a slice of pizza in one hand and a hairbrush for a microphone in the other.
The single is accompanied by a music video that dropped simultaneously, and Leigh-Anne, Jade, and Perrie look absolutely angelic, where two out of three strut their stuff with baby bumps in a burlesque-themed music video. Feathers, rhinestones, and masks, this feels like a real cabaret show we so desperately want to see. Oh, how we wish the Heartbreak Theatre were real!
Hot on the heels of the latest Little Mix single ‘Confetti‘ featuring Saweetie, ‘Heartbreak Anthem’ has actually been over a year in the making. Speaking in a press release, Christian Karlsson of Galantis says: “It started with just the chord progression at a studio in London right before the pandemic.”
“As many collaborations have gone in these times, it was a remote work in progress for months, with stems sent back and forth from London to Los Angeles to Stockholm to Paris.”
As for working with the likes of Little Mix and David Guetta, Karlsson says: “We’d been talking with David about working together for a long time, and having Little Mix and their unique, strong vocals has made this one really special. Feels great to finally get this out into the world!” Not gonna lie, Christian, it feels just as great to listen to it!
Despite two-thirds of Little Mix being baby mamas in the making, the girls have promised that 2021 will be a big year for them. They just made history at this year’s BRITs and have been regularly working with their regular co-writers KAMILLE and MNEK in the studio, so we’re pretty stoked to see what’s coming next!
