“We wanted to tell a story that a lot of people are familiar with, like picturing love as your favorite movie and this is the final scene,” Cheat Codes said of the song in a release. “You don’t want it to ever end but unfortunately there’s no way to rewind the footage, the memories of that love are all we hold. Only you is about that special someone that no matter where you are in the universe your stars still align.”
Little Mix, meanwhile, called it a “feel good summer anthem” they hope fans will “love it as much” as they do.
“Only You” follows a series of singles Cheat Codes have released since forming in 2016. The Los Angeles trio first broke big with an island-infused rework of Salt N Pepa’s “Sex,” followed by Demi Lovato collab “No Promises,” the Fetty Wap-featuring “Feels Great,” and a remix of U2’s “Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way,” among a number of other tracks.
They’re set to embark on a summer tour that includes stops at the Billboard Hot 100, Ultra Europe and Tomorrowland in July, and are currently at work on their fifth album, due out later this year.
