Hot on the heels of her debut single, ‘Don’t Say Love,’ our queen Leigh-Anne is back with her second single, ‘My Love’ and we are obsessed! Enlisting Nigerian rising star Ayra Starr for the feature and Magicsticks (Asake) on the production front, the single is full of Afrobeats/Afropop goodness that feels full of life as the rhythm flows through your body.
The single was accompanied by a cinematic music video which sees Leigh-Anne team up with director Meji Alabi. Filmed in Lagos, Nigeria, the music video is fueled with top-notch choreography and incredible fashion, all while capturing Nigerian culture and genuinely elevating the song. We expect nothing less from Leigh-Anne!
“When we wrote this song, I just knew it was something special, it perfectly captures the essence of who I want to be as a solo artist. That feel-good, powerful, and anthemic song – it’s all about celebrating self-love and embracing its incredible power, and when there was a discussion on a feature I know Ayra was the only one who could embody and amplify this message.”
Leigh-Anne on ‘My Love’
From ‘Don’t Say Love’ to ‘My Love,’ there’s a theme going on with Leigh’s solo music. Though the singles may focus more on romantic love, there are various types out there, and we’ll be the first to shout from the rooftops how much we love Leigh! We’ve grown up with her over these last 12 years and have nothing but love and admiration for her, so to honor this new single, we’re sharing what we love about Leigh-Anne.
She Is The Definition Of Kindness

Leigh-Anne is such a kind soul. She has so much kindness that it radiates through her beautiful face. She has a caring nature towards pretty much anyone she ever meets. Ask any fan who has been blessed to have an encounter with her! There’s truly not a bad bone in her body. In a world where we need more kindness, we also need more Leigh-Anne.
She Uses Her Platform To Discuss Important Issues
Little Mix gave Leigh-Anne a global platform, and she knows the privilege that comes with that. Being conscious of this, Leigh has often used her platform to raise awareness of numerous causes. The most notable would be from her 2021 documentary Leigh-Anne: Race, Pop & Power, which sees her exploring racism across the music industry and confronting her own experiences as the only Black member of Little Mix.
During the documentary, we see her launch The Black Fund, a charity that focuses on the prevention or relief of poverty of the African and Caribbean diaspora in the United Kingdom by making grants to charities and community groups.
She Has A Charitable Heart
The walking up Mt. Kilimanjaro can get a little bit monotonous… So what have our @LittleMix girls Jade and Leigh-Anne learnt along the way? 🤔

Leigh knows just how important it is to give back to the world and uses her platform to be able to offer a charitable helping hand. From climbing Kilimanjaro with bandmate Jade for Comic Relief to actively supporting Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, Leigh-Anne acknowledges her influence of supporting philanthropic causes and knows that with her active involvement, more attention will shine on these charities.
She Doesn’t Take Anything For Granted

Despite being a global superstar, Leigh-Anne never loses sight of her identity. She remembers where she comes from, her humble beginnings, and just how hard she has worked to get where she is today. You will never catch her slipping when it comes to acknowledging her roots and continuous grind as she continues chasing her dreams. We are beyond proud of her!
She’s An Incredible Mother
When your babies are super fans of your music 😩❤️ ive missed my twinnies man 🥺 heart is feeling full!
When it comes to commending Leigh-Anne, we cannot skip over how wonderful of a mother she is. It can be hard to navigate bringing up a family while in the spotlight. Still, she’s doing an incredible job, cautiously curating what content she shares with her adorable twins.
Leigh decided not to share their names or faces, which gives them much-deserved privacy, but we often get glimpses of the motherhood life with photos and videos that consciously make sure their faces aren’t on camera. Still, you can see through what’s posted that they love their mother very much, and she loves them back just as much. Good job, Mama Leigh!

Everyone in the Legion knows how passionate Leigh-Anne is. If you’ve seen her documentary, you see how she spends time researching and ensuring she is educated on areas she may not have been previously educated on. Her passion then, of course, led to The Black Fund.
We also know she loves fashion; her outfits say it all! But she is so passionate that she has pursued this career and has created her own swimsuit-inspired clothing line, In A Seashell, as a different venture from her music. Everything that Leigh-Anne feels passionate about, she is super vocal to the point where we can physically feel her emotions towards it.
Her Determination Knows No Bounds
The moment I saw the video teaser was released for Don't Say Love. Its happy tears I promise. I'm just forever grateful for the support so far. I really am floating right now 🥺❤️
We all have our setbacks and hurdles in life, but Leigh sees that as no reason to give up. When things get in her way, instead of running away, she runs toward it, ensuring she gets through it no matter what. It’s one of our favorite parts about her.
In conclusion, Leigh-Anne is a phenomenal woman who has so much to offer the world. We here at The Honey POP believe in Leigh-Anne supremacy!
