Little Mix celebrate hitting a landmark 100 weeks in the Top 10 on the Official Singles Chart – more than any other girl group in UK chart history.
In the same week the group’s figures at the iconic Madame Tussauds were unveiled, Heartbreak Anthem – the trio’s collaboration with Galantis and David Guetta – places at Number 7, marking their 100th week in the Top 10 across all of their releases.
Celebrating the news, Leigh-Anne Pinnock had a message for their fans, telling OfficialCharts.com:
“Wow! It’s amazing, and we wouldn’t have done this without you guys,” she said. “You never fail to blow us away – you’re just incredible and we wouldn’t be here without you. Thank you.”
Little Mix have landed 18 UK Top 10 singles to date, including five Number 1s, most recently in January this year with Sweet Melody. That track is also their longest running Top 10 single, at 13 weeks, followed by Shout Out To My Ex and CNCO collaboration Reggaeton Lento at 11 weeks.officialcharts.com
Anne-Marie and Little Mix’s “Kiss My (Uh Oh)” received over 5,6 MILLION views on YouTube in its first week.
Madame Tussauds London unveiled new figures honoring British girl group Little Mix on Wednesday (July 28). The display, which finds the singers in their signature colorful, fashion-forward looks, includes a wax figure of Jesy Nelson. Nelson left the group in December following what she said was a decade of anxiety about being compared to her bandmates.
Wednesday’s unveiling coincided with the now trio’s 10th anniversary, and the lifelike sculptures find Leigh-Anne Pinnock rocking a pink Moschino scribble blazer and tights; Jade Thirlwall in a bright green Miscreants minidress and red heels; and Perrie Edwards seated in a yellow and blue Ana Ljubinokovic, outfit including white thigh-highs and pink pumps. Nelson is in Marques Almeida snakeskin trousers, a blue corset and floppy purple fur hat
According to a release, the women have been working closely with Tussauds on the creation of the figures since early 2020, “including attending sittings where hundreds of precise measurements were taken, through to advising on the final details of each figure.” The final look is an homage to the group’s 2019 “Bounce Back” video, placing the quartet on that visual’s vibrant set.MORE: BILLBOARD.COM
