Little Mix have now jumped on the remake bandwagon for the original Cameo R&B track “Word Up!” from 1986. The girls add some really nice vocals to the remake, as well as nice dance beats to give it new life. The girls also hired Alias to remix the track.
“Word Up” was covered for the 2014 annual live telethon, Sport Relief, airing on the BBC March 21-23. There is also an accompanying video which features a few cameos (catch the irony?), including Mel C of The Spice Girls. Adding to more irony, “Word Up” was also covered by Mel B of The Spice Girls back in 1999.
