Little Mix's Leigh-Anne releases her latest solo single "My Love", featuring Nigeria’s rising star Ayra Starr.

The anthemic and infectious track sees Leigh-Anne as she explores the complex truths about self-love and relationships. Leigh’s appreciation for Afrobeats/Afropop is seen throughout "My Love" as she recruits Magicsticks (Asake) for production and tag-teams with Nigerian artist Ayra Starr. Collaborators on Leigh-Anne’s second solo single also include PRGSHN, Khris Riddick-Tynes of The Rascals, Alex Goldblatt, Kameron Glasper, and DYO.

The Meji Alabi-directed music video, which follows on from "Don’t Say Love" sees the duo dance their way through the hustle and bustle of Lagos whilst appreciating Nigerian culture, friendships, and love as well as shining a light on local actors and dancers.

Speaking on the track Leigh-Anne states, “When we wrote this song, I just knew it was something special, it perfectly captures the essence of who I want to be as a solo artist. That feel-good, powerful, and anthemic song - it’s all about celebrating self-love and embracing its incredible power, and when there was a discussion on a feature I know Ayra was the only one who could embody and amplify this message.”

"My Love" is out now via Warner Records.
