Little Mix team up with Missy Elliott for the best dance party ever in their "How Ya Doin?" video.
To say that we're Stangirling (that's "Stan" + "fangirling") over "X Factor U.K." girl group Little Mix would be the understatement of the century. Because it's one thing to release your totally En Vogue-esque new single, "How Ya Doin?," and it is QUITE another to have that '90s throwback record feature the one and only Missy Elliott. Couple that with the girls' brand-new "How Ya Doin?" video (where Missy's wearing one of her signature uni-colored jumpsuits), and we're basically never going to recover.
Watch Little Mix's "How Ya Doin?" video featuring Missy Elliott after the jump.
Little Mix team up with Missy Elliott on their brand-new single, "How Ya Doin?"
You and I both know that when a pop/hip-hop legend like Missy Elliott
comes out of hiding drops an assist on your new single, IT'S A BIG EFFING DEAL. That in mind, "X Factor U.K." girl group Little Mix is probably riding higher than high right now since Missy just lent a verse to the girls' fourth single off their debut album DNA, "How Ya Doin?"
