Little Mix is back with a passive-aggressive breakup anthem for the Snapchat generation: “Shout Out to my Ex.” On the track, the bandmates sing about deleting pics, regrettable tattoos and more. Most of all, the girls wish their ex and his new girlfriend well.
“I hope she gettin’ better sex / Hope she ain’t fakin’ it like I did, babe,” the ladies sing. “Took four long years to call it quits / Forget that boy, I’m over it.”
Some background: Last August, Little Mix star Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik (then of One Direction) called off their engagement after three years of dating. Since then, Zayn has struck up a high-profile romance with it-girl model Gigi Hadid. Is the song about him? Well, it’s not not about him.
