Little Mix - Black Magic

23 August Critic Jonni 0 Comments



Back with one of the catchiest songs of the summer, Little Mix continues their success here in the UK. Like many girl groups before them, they inspire girls to prove that no matter who you are, you can get the guy, you can look good, and that you should never let anyone put you down because you're beautiful inside and out. The perfect video, to a perfect uplifting song, that definitely sticks in my brain nearly everyday.

Little Mix are still the only group to win The X Factor, thanks to the help of Tulisa. They consist of Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall. Black Magic was written by Edvard Forre Erfjord, Henrik Michelsen, Ed Drewett and Camille Purcell. This is their first single from their new album, Get Weird, which is out in November. They have been the most successful from the eighth series of The X Factor, however other well known stars include: Marcus Collins, Amelia Lily, Misha B, Janet Devlin, Kitty Brucknell, Frankie Cocozza, Johnny Robinson and 2 Shoes.

Directed by Director X, this music video is one we will never forget. Something new and different for this foursome. Narrative based, with the band as central characters. It is exactly what I wanted and more from these girls.

It instantly reminds me of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, mixed with films The Craft, Clueless and Mean Girls along with tv series like Charmed and Switch. Director X has really combined all these into one.

The video stars Mikey Grand as the guy that Little Mix find cute, and Stefanie Michova as the mean girl. What this video should give is strength to teenage girls, and girl power is definitely something Little Mix supports, and yet they do make us all envy since there isn't a day that goes by when we all just wish we had magical powers to sort out our lives.

Uplifting and magical, there is not much wrong with this video. Although I do understand that, style wise, they aren't good role models, what with what they are wearing, but come on it is 2015 now, and we all have to admit they look good in what they're wearing, there's worse problems to worry about, this just shows that a geeky girl can be turned sexy.
