Congratulations to Little Mix, who hit 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. 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 - the closest are Girls Aloud, with 61 weeks across their 21 Top 10 singles. Behind them are iconic Motown group The Supremes at 59 weeks, followed by Sugababes at 57 weeks, and Spice Girls on 50 weeks.
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.
What's more, Little Mix look set to extend that record even further; their new collaboration with Anne-Marie Kiss My (Uh Oh) lands at Number 17 on this week's chart and is set to climb in the coming weeks.
