Little Mix Make UK Chart History

Little Mix have made history. They are officially the first girl group to stay in the top 10 of the UK music chart for 100 weeks straight.

Making History With “Heartbreak Anthem”

“Heartbreak Anthem” – the trio’s collaboration with Galantis and David Guetta – has charted at No. 7, marking their 100th week in the Top 10 across all their releases. To make it all even better, it all happened in the same week that the group’s figures at the iconic Madame Tussauds were unveiled.

Little Mix, comprised of Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall, and Perrie Edwards; have officially made a historic record with the release of the Official Singles Chart on July 30. They have now had songs within the top 10 for more weeks than any other girl group in UK chart history.

Leigh-Anne told their fans through Official Charts, “Wow! It’s amazing, and we wouldn’t have done this without you guys. You never fail to blow us away – you’re just incredible and we wouldn’t be here without you. Thank you.”

A collective 100 weeks in the top 10 far exceeds any other girl group in UK chart history. Their closest competitors are Girls Aloud on 61 weeks. They are followed by iconic Motown group The Supremes at 59 weeks and Sugababes at 57 weeks. Lastly, pop legends Spice Girls on 50 weeks.

Little Mix Are Having an Amazing Year

Little Mix’s historic achievement comes just a few months after they also became the first girl group ever to win Best British Group at the BRIT Awards. In their acceptance speech at the time, they said: “It’s not easy being a female in the UK pop industry. We’ve seen the white male dominance, misogyny, sexism, and lack of diversity. We’re proud of how we’ve stuck together, stood our ground. Surrounded ourselves with strong women, and are now using our voices more than ever.”

“The fact that a girl band has never won this award really does speak volumes. So this award isn’t just for us, it’s for Spice Girls, Sugababes, All Saints, Girls Aloud, all of the incredible, incredible female bands … this one’s for you.”
