FLO join forces with Missy Elliott for Work It-sampling new single Fly Girl

Get nails done, get your hair did.

FLO are teaming up with none other than Missy Elliott for their brand new single, Fly Girl.

The kinetic R&B track is due to drop soon via Island, and features a sample of Missy's iconic 2022 hit Work It, which hit Number 6 on the UK's Official Singles Chart.

Announcing the new collaboration via their social media this afternoon, Renée, Stella and Jorja posted a graphic revealing that not only will Fly Girl sample Work It, but Missy herself will be making an appearance on it too.

Fly Girl seems set to be FLO's first big statement piece of the year - following an extraordinary rise last year, which saw them not only named as the BRITs Rising Stars of 2023, as well as the winners of the annual (and very influential) BBC Sound Of...2023 poll.

With the two wins, FLO became both he first girl band (and group in general) to be named as the BRITs Rising Star for 2023 and the first girl group to be named the BBC's Sound Of...winner. Previous winners - such as Adele, Sam Smith and Sam Fender - have gone on to garner international success and a string of UK chart hits.

As with the tracks for FLO's debut EP, The Lead, and sterling singles Cardboard Box and Not My Job, Fly Girl comes with production from savant MNEK, best known for his work with Little Mix, Beyoncé and The Saturdays (All Fired Up, baby!)

FLO - comprised of Renée Downer, Jorja Douglas and Stella Stella Quaresma - only officially started releasing music last year, but have so far had an ascendant 12 months, looking set to be the next logical owners of the British girl group throne currently left vacant with Little Mix on hiatus. 

Fly Girl drops soon via Island.

I cant see this band Flo being the next Little Mix at all.
If they were really that good then Cardboard Box would have
been massive. Money talks once again
