About DNA

"DNA" is a song by British girl group Little Mix from their 2012 debut studio album of the same name. The song was written by the group members, production team TMS and songwriter Iain James, and was inspired by the band's performance of Katy Perry's 2010 single "E. T." as contestants on the eighth UK series of the British television talent show The X Factor. "DNA" is a mid-tempo electropop and techno-pop track featuring eerie synths, a music box introduction, spoken-word middle eight and elements of dubstep. The lyrics stem from the group members' experiences with love, and have a theme of obsession. Released as the album's second single on 9 November 2012, "DNA" debuted at number three on the UK Singles Chart, making it the band's third successive single to chart in the top three. It also reached the top 10 in Ireland and Hungary, and charted at number 14 on the US Bubbling Under Hot 100. The song received generally positive reviews from music critics, who complimented its synth production and choral interlude. The track's accompanying music video, which was directed by Sarah Chatfield, portrays the group as assassins who stalk and kidnap a man, and was inspired by the comic books Sin City and Watchmen. Little Mix promoted "DNA" with televised performances on Loose Women, T4, and the ninth UK series of The X Factor. The song was performed as part of four of the group's concert tours, including The Glory Days Tour in 2017.

Does he tell you he loves you when you least expect it?
Does he flutter your heart when he kisses your neck?
No scientist or biology
It's obvious when he's holding me
It's only natural that I'm so affected

And my heart won't beat again
If I can't feel him in my veins
No need to question, I already know

It's in his DNA, D-D-D-DNA
It's in his DNA
And he just takes my breath away
B-b-b-breath away
I feel it every day
And that's what makes a man
Not hard to understand
Perfect in every way
I see it in his face
Nothing more to say
It's in his D-D-D-DNA

It's the blue in his eyes that helps me see the future
Fingerprints that leave me covered for days, yeah, hey, yeah
Now I don't have any first degree
But I know, what he does to me
No need to work it out, it's so familiar, oh, oh, oh

And my heart won't beat again
If I can't feel him in my veins
No need to question, I already know

It's in his DNA D-D-D-DNA
It's in his DNA
And he just takes my breath away
B-b-b-breath away
I feel it every day
And that's what makes a man
Not hard to understand
Perfect in every way
I see it in his face
Nothing more to say
It's in his D-D-D-DNA

It's all about his kiss
Contaminates my lips
Our energy connects
It's simple genetics
I'm the X to his Y
It's the color of his eyes
He can do no wrong
No, he don't need to try
Made from the best
He passes all the tests
Got my heart beating fast
It's cardiac arrest
He's from a different strain
That science can't explain
I guess that's how he's made
In his D-D-D-DNA

It's in his DNA, D-D-D-DNA
It's in his DNA
And he just takes my breath away
B-b-b-breath away
I feel it every day
And that's what makes a man (what makes a man)
Not hard to understand (to understand)
Perfect in every way (in every way)
I see it in his face (in his face)
Nothing more to say (nothing more to say)
It's in his D-D-D-DNA
