Tweeted another: ‘And just like that @LittleMix come through with album number 6! And like each album before it, I love it. These girls just keep on delivering!’

In celebration of the release of their brand new 13-track offering, Little Mix unveiled a sensational new photo of themselves clad in semi-sheer glittering bodysuits, while appearing to stand amongst stars.

Jesy, Perrie, Leigh-Anne, and Jade oozed confidence as they showcased their enviable curves in the figure-hugging slate grey ensembles.

Wearing nude stilettos to boost their pins, the ladies struck a series of sultry poses while clad in the form-fitting bodysuits. 

The quartet certainly worked their angles as they posed against a starry sky with their locks styled in glamorous waves. 

The sexy new snap comes after it was revealed that a track from their latest album makes a not-so-subtle dig at their old boss Simon Cowell.

The song – Not A Pop Song – which features on the record released on Friday, suggests Simon and his team treated the iconic girl group like ‘puppets on a string’.

The Little Mix ladies parted ways with Simon’s label, Syco, in 2018, having been signed to the company on winning X Factor in 2011. They are now signed with RCA. 

The lyrics read: I don’t do what Simon says / Get the message cuz it’s read / That’s just life it never plays fair / Said to follow any dream, be a puppet on a string / Works for you but that isn’t me / This ain’t another pop song.’ 

A source close to the band told Metro: ‘It’s not bitchy – and isn’t meant in a bitchy way at all.

‘They think Simon will see the funny side of it – as they know he loves attention and will think it’s all playful. It’s about them growing up and becoming women in a way.’

Confetti is the band’s sixth studio album, following on from 2018’s LM5. It is their first release with RCA.  

Despite the label still being linked to Syco under Sony Music, Leigh-Anne previously said of the switch: ‘It’s nice to have fresh people to work with and fresh ideas. Everyone needs change in their life I guess.’ 

‘I feel like we’ve had control from the start. We’ve always been the type of girls to walk in and be like, right, this is what we want.

‘We were like that from The X Factor. We’ve always taken the lead but I think it’s gotten better now that we’ve got older.’
