Single of the Day: Little Mix – Little Me 

Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Mempertahankan itu lebih sulit daripada mendapatkan. Tanyakan kepastiannya kepada para juara The X Factor UK. Banyak dari mereka yang “tumbang” saat menjalani fase album kedua, dan harus mundur dari prioritas ke barisan antrean. Sebagai penggemar, saya tidak pernah mengharap itu terjadi pada Little Mix. Mereka begitu berharga untuk berhenti begitu saja, secepat ini. Tapi sebenarnya, mendengar materi yang tersaji dalam “Salute”, album studio kedua mereka, sedikit tak ada kekhawatiran kalau degradasi itu akan menjadi kenyataan.

Selain didukung dengan nama-nama berpengalaman, album ini juga menyeret LM pada pergolakan ide, penerapan inovasi, dan segalanya yang bukan berarti main aman. ‘Move’ adalah satu cerita, dan ‘Little Me‘ merupakan kelanjutannya. Mereka mencoba untuk membuat dinamika dalam diskografi single dan menempuh jalur ballad dalam pemberhentian selanjutnya.

Merasakan kalau single ini terlalu kelam? Perpaduan irama ‘Elysium’ di dalamnya membuat kesan tersebut muncul. Ini berarti peranan besar dipegang pada sampling yang dilakukan. Irama tersebut mengendalikan perasaan pendengar, sekaligus memberi identitas pada lagu ini. But is it worth it? Nada dan irama yang populer itu membungkus satu lagu secara keseluruhan? It is. LM punya lebih banyak “tonjolan” lain yang bisa menandingi pesona ‘Elysium’ dan membuat lagu ini bukan sekedar lagu sampling. Harmonisasi yang mereka buat dalam vokal plus lirik yang mendidik juga patut menjadi bahan pertimbangan dalam memberikan penilaian untuk single ini.

Bagi yang mengharap mendapat sesuatu yang catchy saat mendengarkan ‘Little Me’, lagu ini juga dibangun dengan bahan berupa beat repetitif yang mengukuhkan sound dan memperkuat pemaknaan. Hingga akhirnya didapat kesimpulan persis pernyataan yang LM buat, it’s heartfelt and meaningful.

LYRIC
[Jade:]
She lives in the shadow of a lonely girl
Voice so quiet you don’t hear a word,
Always talking but she can’t be heard,

[Leigh- Anne:]
You can see it there if you catch her eye,
I know she’s brave but it’s trapped inside,
Scared to talk but she don’t know why,

Wish I knew back then,
What I know now,
Wish I could somehow,
Go back in time and maybe listen to my own advice,

I’d tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out,
Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder,
Tell her she’s beautiful, wonderful,
Everything she doesn’t see,

You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out,
And know that right here, right now,
You can be beautiful, wonderful,
Anything you wanna be,

[Jesy:]
Little me

Yeah you got a lot of time to act your age,
You can’t write a book from a single page,
Hands on the clock only turn one way,

(Yeah)

[Perrie:]
Run too fast and you’ll risk it all,
Can’t be afraid to take a fall,
Felt so big but you looked so small,

Wish I knew back then,
What I know now,
Wish I could somehow,
Go back in time and maybe listen to my own advice,

I’d tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out,
Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder,
Tell her she’s beautiful, wonderful,
Everything she doesn’t see.

You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out,
And know that right here, right now,
You can be beautiful, wonderful,
Anything you wanna be, oh,
Little me

Little me, yeah

[Leigh-Anne:]
Tell you one thing I would say to her

[All:]
I’d tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out,
Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder,
Tell her she’s beautiful, wonderful,
Everything she doesn’t see.

You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out,
And know that right here, right now,
You can be beautiful, wonderful,
Anything you wanna be,
Little me

I’d tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out,
Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder,
Tell her she’s beautiful, wonderful,
Everything she doesn’t see.

You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out,
And know that right here, right now,
You can be beautiful, wonderful,
Anything you wanna be,

I’d tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out,
Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder,
Tell her she’s beautiful, wonderful,
Everything she doesn’t see.

You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out,
And know that right here, right now,
You can be beautiful, wonderful,
Anything you wanna be,

Little me
