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

In seven years, Little Mix have racked up an array of smash hits. But which one comes out on top?

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 highly among the UK's great girlbands of all time.

In seven years, Jesy, Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perrie have amassed 12.7 million combined sales across their 20 Top 40 singles, including an eye-watering 774 million audio streams. View Little Mix's full Official Charts history here.

Four of the group's singles have reached Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart, but are they their four biggest overall? Here's how they stack up. 

Cannonball 

Official Chart Peak: Number 1
Released:
 2011
Combined sales: 519,000

The group's lowest selling Number 1 is their X Factor winner's single - a cover of Damien Rice's folk song Cannonball. Placing 12th in their all-time Top 20, it's a song Little Mix rarely acknowledge these days, but knowing that Simon Cowell clearly never even considered them show champions when selecting the winner's single makes it slightly more palatable. 


Little Mix with their Official Number 1 Single Award for Wings

Wings

Official Chart peak: Number 1
Released: 2012
Combined sales: 716,000

Little Mix's first single proper was Wings; a life-affirming banger encouraging everyone to live their best life. It spent a week at Number 1 and has aged remarkably well, placing seventh on their Top 20 with 17.5 million streams logged to date, despite being released two years before streaming records began. 

Move

Official Chart Peak: Number 3
Released: 2013
Combined sales: 596,000

It may be their lowest charting album lead single (heading up their second collection Salute), but Move is one of their most acclaimed, mostly for its killer harmonies and wonky structure. It places 11th on their Top 20 chart. 

Secret Love Song

Official Chart Peak: Number 6
Released: 2015
Combined sales: 916,000

Little Mix's biggest ballad ranks at Number 5 in their Top 20, close to one million combined 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
Combined sales: 1.25 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. It narrowly misses out on being their most streamed song, with a massive 101.3 million plays to date. 


Little Mix with their Official Number 1 Single Award for Shout Out To my Ex 

Shout Out To My Ex

Official Chart Peak: Number 1
Released: 2016
Combined sales: 1.4 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 in it's opening week. It was also the only chart-topping single that year with a female lead - Girl Power!
