Little Mix and Cheat Codes Release LGBTQ+ 'Only You' Video Starring Peyton List as a Mermaid
Fans are embracing Little Mix and Cheat Codes' latest collaboration
Racking up 15 million streams in three weeks, the track was produced by Cheat Codes and features Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards’ vocals.
In the emotional video, actress Peyton List, 20, stars as a mermaid who falls in love with a young girl at a party. They dance, party and show off plenty of PDA after hitting it off, but the situation turns dire as the mermaid’s health starts to deteriorate.
Eventually, she is set free back into the ocean by her new love in an unexpectedly emotional ending.
“Once upon a time we had it all / Somewhere down the line we went and lost it / One brick at a time we watched it fall,” sings the girl group in the chorus.
After the video was released on Friday, fans voiced their support for the LGBTQ+ themed storyline on social media.
Last year, Little Mix dedicated their track “Secret Love Song” to their gay fans while opening for Ariana Grande in Kansas City.
“Singing Secret Love Song meant more than usual tonight. To our LGBT fans…please don’t ever be afraid to be who you are,” wrote Thirlwall on Instagram.
