Music lovers around the world have noticed a similarity between Little Mix’s new single ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ and G.R.L’s 2014 ‘Ugly Heart’.
Fans voiced their opinions on social media after Little Mix’s performance on The X Factor last week and G.R.L sparked controversy by tweeting “ShoutOutToUglyHeart”.

In a recent interview with a Belgian radio station, Jade Thirlwall of Little Mix responded to the accusations by saying, “every song is going to have a similar chord sequence, slightly similar lyrics and melodies. It happens all the time. It doesn’t mean that they’re not both incredible songs.”
Thirlwall elaborated by adding, ““I think maybe because it was a girl band as well. I just think people like to have something negative to say.”
