Love Me Like You is a straight-up girl group pastiche - a not-so-distant-cousin of The Ronettes' Be My Baby - in the tradition of the Spice Girls' Stop, and Girls Aloud on The Promise - worryingly, both singles that marked the end of the bands' imperial phases.
I don't think that's the case here... When I spoke to Little Mix over the summer, they said they wanted their third album to be one they could sing along to with their mums. And Love Me Like You would sound awesome blasting out of the car stereo on a family trip to Grandma's.
Nonetheless, it's interesting to see Little Mix aim so squarely for the mainstream after two albums of exciting, edgy pop. It's been the undoing of similar acts (*waves at the Sugababes*) but something tells me the quartet will pull this off with poise.
(Amazingly, the song was originally called Fuck Me Like You. Although that's according to the not-entirely-reliable Daily Star.)
