AceShowbiz - There aren't many girl groups who can make it big in the music industry right now, but Little Mix is certainly not one of them. Ever since becoming the first group to win the U.K. version of "The X Factor", the four-piece group continues to prove their worth with hit after hit.
Take their debut album "DNA" as an example. It debuted at No. 4 on Billboard 200 chart, making them the first girl group to reach the top 5 with their debut album since Danity Kane in 2006 as well as earning the highest debut Billboard chart position by a British girl group. The record was previously held by Spice Girls with their debut album "Spice" that arrived at No. 6 in 1996.
Little Mix continued to take the world by storm after that. For instance, their fourth studio album, "Glory Days" topped U.K. music chart for five non-consecutive weeks, the longest run at the top by a girl group since Spice Girls spent 15 weeks atop the chart with their debut album. The effort additionally became the longest-running girl group album in the top 40 ever after spending sixty nine weeks on the tally.
The lead single off the effort, "Shout Out to My Ex", also won several awards due to its success, including British Single of the Year at the 2017 Brit Awards as well as Best Break-Up song at the Radio Disney Music Awards in the same year. Its second single "Touch" nabbed Track of the Year at Popjustice's Twenty Quid Music Prize.
The "Secret Love Song" hitmakers are currently preparing to release their upcoming album "LM5". Its lead single, "Woman Like Me" featuring Nicki Minaj, was released on October 12 with its music video treatment making its way out on November 2. Written by Ed Sheeran and Jess Glynne, it peaked at No. 2 on U.K. singles chart.
"LM5" is set for a November 16 release.
