Little Mix snags a slice of chart history by becoming the girl group to clock up 100 weeks in the U.K. Top 10.
The reigning BRITs group of year reach the magical milestone this week with “Heartbreak Anthem,” their collaboration with Galantis and David Guetta, which slips 3-7 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart.
The trio has bagged a whopping 18 U.K. Top 10 singles, including five No. 1s, most recently with “Sweet Melody” scaling the summit in January.
Little Mix are well ahead of the next-closest competitor in chart history, Girls Aloud, who’ve notched 61 weeks across their 21 Top 10 singles, the OCC reports. Next up, The Supremes (59 weeks), Sugababes (57 weeks), and Spice Girls (50 weeks), respectively.
The chart feat caps a headline-grabbing twelve months which has included a lineup change, their history-making Brit Award, and the unveiling of a waxwork at Madame Tussauds.
The trio of Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwal got their break on in 2011 by becoming the first group to win the U.K. version of The X Factor. Co-founding member Jesy Nelson left the act in December 2020 citing mental health struggles.
