Little Mix have made US chart history, as debut album DNA soars straight into the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 albums chart.
Little Mix have become the first ever British girl group to debut in the Top 5 in the USA with their debut album release after selling over 50,000 copies and clinching a Number 4 smash. This means that after shooting to stardom as winners of the X Factor 2011, Little Mix - who otherwise go by the names of Perrie, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Jade - have even surpassed the Spice Girls whose iconic debut album SPICE entered at Number 6 back in 1997. Globally, DNA has entered the Top 5 in 7 countries and Little Mix have sold over 2 million records worldwide.
Here in the UK, Little Mix are of course no strangers to Official Chart success, having racked up two Number 1s, 1.4 million UK singles sales and nearly 300,000 album sales. Here’s the moment when Little Mix picked up their Number 1 Award from OfficialCharts.com for Wings, the track has since debuted at the top of the Billboard Chart in the US too and has amassed a whopping 51 million views on Vevo, becoming a pop culture hit after featuring in the season finale of FOX’s hit show GLEE as well as being covered by the final four contestants on this season’s American Idol.
Good luck to the girls who are due to make their all-important US television debut on ABC’s Good Morning America annual Summer Concert Series on New York City’s prestigious Central Park Stage this Friday June 7th. Little Mix will perform their hit single Wings and join a stellar line up of superstars who are set to take the stage this summer including Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Demi Lovato, John Legend, Pitbull and Selena Gomez.
