"Just a Little" is a song recorded by English-Irish pop group Liberty X. Written by singer Michelle Escoffery and produced by The BigPockets, it was released on 13 May 2002 as the third single from the group's debut studio album, Thinking It Over (2002).

The song debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart when released,[1] selling over 100,000 copies in its first week. It only stayed at number one for a week, being replaced by Eminem's "Without Me". Despite this the record remained in the chart all summer, and ended up as the seventh best selling single of the year. It also reached number four in Australia and number ten in France. The song has sold 510,000 copies in the UK as stated by the Official UK Charts Company and won the Best British Single at the 2003 BRIT Awards.The song was the 86th best-selling single of the 2000s in the UK.[2]

The song proved to be Liberty X's breakthrough to mainstream and critical success, in the process overtaking rivals Hear'Say in terms of success. To date it is the group's only number one; after the success of Thinking It Over, the band had a gradual fall from success and follow-up singles failed to reach the top.

During Celebrity Big Brother 6, Michelle Heaton, who performed a version of the song wearing a tight PVC catsuit for a Big Brother task, revealed that she did not contribute vocals to "Just a Little" because she "wasn't good enough to cut it".
