Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall has spoken out about the group's decision to split from Simon Cowell's label Syco just days before the release of their fifth album LM5, saying that it really "f***ed us over".
Speaking to The Sun about fan feedback that their videos didn't feature much female empowerment, Jade said, "We did a little bit but we had a switch of labels during the LM5 process and that really f***ed us over.
She continued, "It was harder to put all our creativity out there in the way we would have liked. The LM5 album was very heavily on women’s rights and our experiences in the industry."
Reportedly the group penned an email to Cowell surrounding writing credits for their music, before a row erupted between Little Mix's management company, Modest and Simon's record label Syco. Eventually the two cut ties and the group split from Syco to work with RCA.

Jade continued, "That period in our careers was quite troublesome... I feel like now we’re in a good place — we’re with RCA and we’re working on a new record, which is really exciting... We’ve learnt to really stick to our guns and do what we believe in.”
Snaps to Little Mix for standing up for what they believe in!
