Earlier this week, a source confirmed to CelebsNow that the girls and Nicki are recording their music video for the single, which is believed to have been filmed over Thursday and Friday.

The source said: ‘’Little Mix and Nicki Minaj are filming a music video together this Thursday and Friday.

‘It’s such an exciting collaboration – literally two of the biggest names in female music coming together, and the song is sure to be a hit!’

Little Mix have been extremely open about their love of Nicki in the past.

In 2013, Jesy told Daily Star: ‘We’ve been saying for ages that Nicki Minaj is the person we all want to record with.’

Jade added: ‘If we say it enough it may happen. We always envisage a rapper on our music.’

Recently they tweeted their love for her most recent album Queen, saying: ‘All hail QUEEN @NickiMinaj. This album has been on repeat all week!’

The Little Mix girls – Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock – also sang Nicki’s song Superbass when they were competing on The X Factor back in 2011.

This song with Nicki Minaj will be their second single of 2018 – having released Only You with Cheat Codes earlier this year, which only got to number 13 in the UK charts.

We are so excited for this single!
