Little Mix are powering on with the much-anticipated follow-up to 2016's 'Glory Days'
Little Mix are hard at work on their fifth album.
Britain's hottest girl group - Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall - are fully focused on producing another hit record, according to pop star Raye, who has been penning tracks for the girls' follow-up to 2016's 'Glory Days'.
The 'Power' hitmakers, who are up for British Single and Best Video for 'Touch' at the BRIT Awards, won't let the fact they are not nominated for Best Group stop them in their tracks.
Speaking about their next studio effort and the lack of female-on-female collaborations, 'Bet U Wish' singer Raye told the Daily Star newspaper: "The Little Mix album, I've been writing for that.
"For every 10 guys there's one girl, everywhere you go.
"It's very overwhelming and I think it's really important that girls have started to support each other more, all becoming friends like a little community.
"It's so important. I think we need more female collaborations because it isn't enough.
"It's so frustrating that you get a female track with a male feature, why can't it just be female and female?"
The girls jumped onto social media after hearing the news and urged their fans - known as Mixers - to get voting.
Reacting to their video nod on Twitter, the girls said: "This is insane! We're only up for 'British Video' at the @Brits this year with #TOUCH!! This is incredible and we have you guys to thank You can vote ONCE every 24 hours by tweeting #BRITVIDLITTLEMIX....vote opens RIGHT NOW! Let's get it! xx the girls xx (sic)"
Expressing their gratitude on the single nomination, they added: "So unreal!! We're up for 'British Video' and 'British Single' at the @BRITs this year with #TOUCH We're honestly so so so grateful to be nominated in both these categories! Thank you thank you thank youuuu xx the girls xx #BRITs (sic)"
