Missy Elliott - Little Mix cried when they first heard their track with Missy Elliott

Little Mix cried when they first heard their collaboration with Missy Elliott.

The pop foursome worked with the hip-hop legend on their track 'How Ya Doin', which was a ''dream come true'' for them.

The group - Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall - also teamed up with T-Boz from TLC for the track 'Red Planet'.

Speaking to ArtistDirect.com, Perrie, 19, said: ''Having Miss Elliott on a track is absolutely incredible. We actually cried when we heard it back.

''We were so happy and shocked that it happened. Having T-Boz was amazing.

''There's a lot of girl power on the album ['DNA']. We grew up listening to TLC so this is cool.

''Jesy has been in love with Missy Elliott since she was really young.''

Jesy, 22, expanded on why Missy is her idol.

She added: ''Missy Elliott has been my idol since I was a little girl. It was the coolest thing. We couldn't believe it. We look up to T-Boz and TLC so much.

''They were massive influences on us. It was lovely having them on our tracks.''

When asked what other artists influenced them, Perrie, who is in a relationship with One Direction's Zayn Malik, said: ''I listened to Journey when I was young, and I still listen to them now!''

Jesy added: ''I love Destiny's Child. I love Beyoncé.''
