Little Mix's Top 20 biggest singles on the Official Chart

To celebrate 10 years of Little Mix, we reveal the group's Official Top 20 biggest hits so far.

Since beating the odds to be crowned winners of The X Factor in 2011, Little Mix have tirelessly turned out hit records and now rank among the UK's great girlbands of all time.

Now the group are marking a decade together with new album Between Us - a retrospective with five brand-new tracks, released on November 12. And they've got plenty of hits to pick off for a best-of: 30 Top 40 singles, including five Number 1s. View Little Mix's full Official Chart history here.

When it comes to UK sales and streams, here's how Little Mix's hits stack up... 

Cannonball 
Official Chart Peak: Number 1
Released: 2011
UK chart sales: 558,000

The group's lowest selling Number 1 is their X Factor winner's single - a cover of Damien Rice's Cannonball, which was a Top 40 hit for the folk musician in 2003. Placing 17th in their all-time Top 20, it's a song Little Mix rarely acknowledge these days, but knowing that Simon Cowell probably didn't even considered them show champions when selecting the winner's single makes it slightly more palatable.

Wings
Official Chart peak: Number 1
Released: 2012
UK chart sales: 948,000

Little Mix's first single proper was a life-affirming banger encouraging everyone to live their best life. It spent one week at Number 1 and has aged remarkably well, placing eighth on their Top 20 with 40.7 million streams logged to date, despite being released two years before streaming records began.

Sweet Melody 
Official Chart peak: Number 1
Released: 2020
Combined sales: 736,000

Little Mix's fifth and most recent Number 1, the super-charged Sweet Melody completed a ten-week climb to the summit in January this year, reaching the top less than a month after Jesy Nelson's depature. The track had serious legs, enjoying 30 weeks in the Top 100 - one of their longest runs on the chart. 

Move
Official Chart Peak: Number 3
Released: 2013
UK chart sales: 711,000

It may be their lowest charting album lead single (heading up their second record Salute), but Move is one of their most acclaimed tracks, mostly for its killer harmonies and wonky structure. It places 13th on their Top 20 chart. 

Hair
Official Chart Peak: Number 11
Released: 2015
UK chart sales: 912,000

Hair is the group's biggest single to miss the Top 10, and in terms of chart sales, outperforms some of their higher charting efforts including Salute, DNA and Word Up. Hair was first released as a teaser track ahead of their Get Weird album, before being upgraded to single status in 2016 with a new mix featuring Sean Paul.

Secret Love Song
Official Chart Peak: Number 6
Released: 2015
UK chart sales: 1.33 million

Little Mix's biggest ballad ranks at Number 5 in their Top 20, topping one million chart sales. The collaboration with Jason Derulo - who co-wrote the song - was apparently inspired by the group's Radio 1 Live Lounge cover of his single Want To Want Me.

Touch
Official Chart Peak: Number 4
Released: 2016
UK chart sales: 1.6 million 

Despite missing the top spot, Touch is one of Little Mix's most successful singles. The MNEK-produced track spent ten weeks in the Top 10, six of which were spent stuck at Number 4. The song places third in their all-time chart, and is also their third most-streamed hit, with a massive 150 million plays to date.

Shout Out To My Ex
Official Chart Peak: Number 1
Released: 2016
UK chart sales: 1.96 million

This kiss-off anthem - released a few months after Perrie's split from Zayn Malik - charged straight in at Number 1 and spent three weeks there, shifting 95,000 chart sales in it's opening week. It was also the only chart-topping single that year with a female lead - Girl Power indeed!
