Little Mix want Nicki Minaj collaboration

Little Mix want Nicki Minaj collaboration

Little Mix "dream" of working with Nicki Minaj.

The 'Wings' hitmakers - who have teamed up with both Jessie J and Jess Glynne for tracks on their forthcoming new album - are hoping they can find the right song on which to record with the 'Starships' singer.

Jade Thirlwall said: "We'd always wanted to work with Jessie J, but we'd never found the right time before. We really, really want to get Nicki Minaj on a track."

Her bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock added: "That's literally the dream. We say it all the time: we want a collaboration with Nicki. But it's about getting the right track, and obviously we do the album and then we go back and see what could use a feature. This album is open to suggestions."

The group - which also includes Jesy Nelson and Perrie Edwards - think their new album has "more personality" than their previous efforts and a much more "pop" sound.

Jade said: "Yeah album three is a lot more pop. It's more fun, and has more personality, I would say. We always say that if you put us four girls in a room for hours chatting away, that's what the album is. It's very real to what we would say and the little things we do. I feel like it's our strongest album yet."

While the quartet are delighted with their success so far, they have now set their sights on making a global name for themselves.

Jade told Digital Spy: "We've done so well so far and we are successful, but we just want that big song that explodes everywhere. It's about time that happened - especially in America and all over the world really. The UK have seen us be successful now, and it's just about taking that everywhere else. Representing Britain!"
