Little Mix are taking America by storm. Not only do they have Mixers lining up to catch a glimpse of them at signings and appearances across the country, they are also leaving their mark on the charts thanks to girl-power anthems like “Wings.”
Their debut album, DNA, which they released May 28, just broke a record: They are the first British girl group to debut in the top five with their debut album release, according to their label, Sony. The group topped the legendary Spice Girls. Debuting at #4 on the Billboard albums chart in its first week, DNA beats the Spice Girls’ 1997 debut, Spice, which landed at #6 in its first week.
“It was amazing. I don’t think any of us ever expected to ever get in the top five. And to beat the Spice Girls was even more incredible ’cause they are like our idols,” Jesy Nelson told MTV News. “We looked up to them when we were younger. They’ve led the way for British girl groups to crack America, and it feels lovely that we’ve done it as well.”
