Power (feat. Stormzy) - Little Mix |

Bringing girl power completely in this music video whilst spreading a universal message with the visual and including Stormzy too; Little Mix is fully bringing it with this one, and they definitely have the power to become the biggest and most successful girl group ever. Proving that girls can be strong; Little Mix spreads a monumental message around the world in this visual. Watch Little Mix bring girl power and female empowerment with each member representing a particular group of people, spreading meaning and equality; with a rap from Stormzy in this music video for "Power".

Little Mix are a four-piece girl group consisting of Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock. They are still the only group to win The X Factor in the UK; yes, even One Direction only came third in their series. This girl group won on series eight of The X Factor, and they are still going strong six years after their win. This song is their fourth single from their fourth album, which is their first and only UK number one album to date; although, I reckon they've got more number one albums coming in the future. The song adds a rap from Stormzy, updating the original song from the album. Stormzy, real name Michael Omari Owuo Jr., is one of the biggest British grime artists around at the moment, and has gone on to have major success; his debut album reached number one in the UK, with all 16 tracks making it onto the UK Singles Chart. This song was written by Don Omelio, Camille Purcell, James Abrahart, and Michael Omari.

Directed by Hannah Lux Davies, this music video is fierce and sassy, totally allowing the girls to bring female empowerment and girl power in this music video. There is one scene that sees three drag queens from RuPaul's Drag Race, who are Courtney Act, Alaska Thunderfuck 5000, and Willam. The ending scene sees the girls and their mothers head the march through the street.

There are four main scenes in this visual, with each of the girls having the spotlight in their respective scenes. Perrie is bringing the peace in her hippie style fashion. Jesy is a biker chick, proving that girls can do whatever they want and be whoever they want to be. Leigh-Anne is representing women of colour in the modelling industry. Whilst Jade performs in front of a gay nightclub with three drag queens backing her up; this visual comes almost a year after the awful Orlando shooting.

Then we see Stormzy getting his hair done in a salon, where various women are dancing around him. Surprisingly this is a great way of him showing female empowerment because his style is pretty much in their hands as they do his hair. His rap adds well to the song; although, I do prefer the original.

The ending scene sees women marching up the street. Little Mix are in front, heading the group. They are holding their hands of their mothers; women that they look up to. Overall the video is amazing in every way and really shows off Little Mix perfectly; and, kudos to them including people who may otherwise be misrepresented. This is just perfect.
