Mabel is keen to write again for Little Mix E! News UK
Mabel is keen to write more music with Little Mix.
The ‘Let Them Know’ singer wrote the track ‘Trash’ on the chart-topping girl group’s latest album before announcing their hiatus, 2021’s ‘Between Us’, and she would love to work with Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh- Again Anne Pinnock.
She told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “I’m such a big fan of Little Mix and I love writing songs – the songwriting process is one of my favorite things.
“The song came so fast and the Little Mix girls heard it and I love them. I was like, ‘If they want to sing it, let’s do it.
“They’re all going to do their own things and I hope to work with them again.
“I love them all. I’m excited to see what they’re going to do – they’re all going to smash it.
The trio are focusing on their solo adventures for now.
Meanwhile, Mabel envisions an acting career in the future after doing just that in her recent music videos.
She said, “I would love to. Doing it in those videos was my first time trying.
“I really liked it and I would like to learn properly and do something.
“Right now it’s all about my music and I still have big goals for what I want to do musically. I want to be a global artist and making more tracks will always be my first love.
“But I would absolutely love to play at some point.”
The 26-year-old star – who is the daughter of Swedish singer Neneh Cherry and producer Cameron McVey – has been open about battling the pressure of being in the spotlight.
And she considered quitting the music industry due to the negative attention she was bombarded with on social media about her looks and singing abilities.
She said: “I was super overwhelmed by everything.
“I wasn’t ready to be on stage in front of thousands of people or doing award shows that were broadcast around the world.
“So you go there in fear of what people might say about you. You managed to get out of it but you couldn’t give it your all because the fear was there, and it’s amazing what fear will do to your mind, your body and your voice.
“Then you get negative comments about it, and then you have to do it again. You end up in this cycle of not being able to perform. This shook my confidence a lot. »
The “constant” fear that people would hate her kept her awake at night.
She added: “I was stressed all the time, constantly feeling that what I was doing wasn’t good enough.
“It would be difficult to sleep. And I had this constant fear of thinking, ‘I’m going to do this interview but I feel like I’m being tricked because they don’t like me’ or ‘I’m going to do this shoot and someone said online that I look like I’ve gained weight.
“I was so involved in other people’s thoughts about me that I didn’t even know how I felt about myself.”
She continued, “You can’t not read it. That’s why I had to get rid of it a bit. If you go looking, you’re going to find, and it’s really hard not to look because I think in a way we all want validation from people.
“As artists, we want to be loved. I want to be as big as possible, I want to appeal to as many different people as possible, and I always think of my journey as an artist as being inclusive, not exclusive.
“But in addition to opening yourself up to everyone, you allow people to judge you and everyone is entitled to their opinion. And it can still be difficult.
“It was like a hamster wheel. I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing and how to do things.
