Pairing the hottest property in pop with the world’s best-selling sports car is a perfect fit– especially when it’s in a video for a song called “Power”
And that’s exactly what Little Mix wanted for the new single from their chart-topping album Glory Days. Filmed on location in Los Angeles, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 shares centre stage with Leigh-Anne, Jesy, Jade and Perrie as they sing the virtues of women being in control.
“The Mustang was amazing! Sexy and cool with a beautiful interior,” said the band who can be seen singing and dancing alongside the iconic model. Little Mix are currently midway through the European leg of a world tour of 17 countries that has so far included dates in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and France; with UK appearances to follow next.
First launched in 1964, the iconic Mustang is embedded in popular culture with more than 3,800 movie appearances alone, as well as being namechecked in numerous songs. It is on sale across Europe in both fastback and convertible bodystyles.
“Mustang is a car with true star quality and an in-built ability to turn heads,” said Greg Dawson, vice president Communications and Public Affairs, Ford of Europe. “We loved the idea that one of our Mustangs would appear in Little Mix’s new video and were only too happy to help.”
The Ford Mustang Shelby is powered by a 5.2-litre V8 engine which produces 526 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque, and features engine oil, transmission and differential coolers to keep the car properly cooled while on the track. Other equipment includes a no-compromise braking system with vented 15.5-inch two-piece front rotors and six-piston Brembo® calipers along with the MagneRide™ damping system. The result is the most balanced Mustang ever.
Ford caught up with Little Mix while they were filming their new video Power. Here’s what the globetrotting band has to say about life on the road.
What travel tips / hacks do you swear by to stay looking your best on the road? Perrie: Always have dry shampoo, it’s the best. Coconut oil for your body, hair, lashes.

Whose taste in music-on-the-move is most likely to cause an argument? Perrie: If I play any of my old school rock the girls go mad at me, so it’s R&B all day everyday lol.
Jade: If it’s really early in the morning probably Leigh-Anne’s as she blasts it so loud and it’s never very chilled.
Leigh-Anne: My friend Grace’s lol, but in the group I think we all have pretty good taste in music!
Jess: We never argue over music, we all have slightly different taste but we appreciate each other’s taste.
