Little Mix's 'Shout Out To My Ex' Accused Of Sounding A Lot Like G.R.L.'s 'Ugly Heart'

'Shout Out To Ugly Heart.'

Little Mix may have won rave reviews for their debut performance of ‘Shout Out To My Ex’, but one aspect of the song has already come under fire.

Specifically, the track’s similarities to the G.R.L. hit ‘Ugly Heart’.

Soon after Little Mix’s latest song debuted, fans were quick to point out how much the chorus of ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ reminded them of ‘Ugly Heart’.

This didn’t go unnoticed by G.RL. themselves, who promptly threw up a message to Little Mix to let them know that they’d been clocked.

Of course, don’t just take our word for it (and the word of a load of people on Twitter) - have a listen to the two tracks, and let us know whether you think G.R.L. have been ripped off below...

‘Shout Out To My Ex’ previously raised eyebrows when excerpts of the song’s lyrics were leaked last week, particularly as they appeared to relate to Perrie Edwards’ much-publicised break-up with her ex-fiancé Zayn Malik.

When asked about this in an interview, Perrie admitted she’d not asked her ex for his approval before recording the song, with Jesy Nelson adding that she didn’t feel he “deserved” a heads up.

Little Mix’s ‘X Factor’ performance garnered praise from viewers, who were particularly impressed that some of the band’s backing dancers sported the names of female exes on their t-shirts, though the group’s stage costumes were somewhat more divisive.

‘Shout Out To My Ex’, the lead single from the girls’ fourth album ‘Glory Days’, is available to download now.
