About Salute

"Salute" is a song recorded by British girl group Little Mix for their second studio album of the same name (2013). It was released on 30 May 2014 as the album's third and final single. It was co-written by the group (Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall) with TMS (Thomas Barnes, Peter Kelleher and Ben Kohn) and Maegan Cottone, and produced by TMS. Lyrically, "Salute" is a girl-power song, being called "a call to arms for women everywhere to stand up and fight whatever imaginary enemy is standing in their way," with military metaphors, war sirens, and hip hop and trap influences, drawing comparisons to Destiny's Child and Beyoncé's "Run the World (Girls)". Music critics gave the song positive reviews, with most praising its empowering lyrics and military-inspired drum beats. Some even noticed it would fit perfectly as an opening song for the tour, as well as being one of the strongest tracks of 2013. The song became a top-ten hit on the charts of Scotland and United Kingdom, becoming the band's sixth top-ten single in the UK, while reaching the top-twenty in Ireland. A music video for the song features the band dancing in an underground warehouse with an entourage of male dancers, some of whom are on leads. To promote the song, the band performed in many TV shows, including Britain's Got Talent and the Today Show.
