Little Mix Just Equalled Destiny's Child's Chart Record, Proving They're Awesome As Ever
Little Mix have continued to slay their way into 2017 as their latest album Glory Days just racked up a fourth non-consecutive week as the Official UK Albums Chart No.1, meaning they've just equalled the might of super girl group Destiny's Child.
In 2001, Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams logged four weeks at No.1 with Survivor, which to date saw them have the longest-running girl group No.1 album of the millennium. But not anymore!
Glory Days however still has a way to go to beat all time girl group Spice Girls, who's debut self-titled LP is still the one to beat, which spent 15 weeks at the top across 1996-97.
Elsewhere, Little Mix saw off competition from Pete Tong & The Heritage Orchestra's Club Classics album which jumped 22 places to No.2 this week following their performance of Fatboy Slim's 'Right Here, Right Now' and Shapeshifters' 'Lola's Theme' on The Graham Norton's New Year's Eve Show.
Official UK Albums Chart Top 5:
1. Little Mix - Glory Days
2. Pete Tong With The Heritage Orchestra - Classic House
3. Michael Ball & Alfie Boe - Together
4. Elvis Presley - The Wonder Of You
5. The Rolling Stones - Blue & Lonesome
Meanwhile, Little Mix's 'Touch' holds firm at No.4 on the Official UK Singles Chart Top 40 while Clean Bandit spend a NINTH week at No.1 with 'Rockabye', equalling nine-week runs from both Gnarls Barkley's 'Crazy' and Frankie Goes To Hollywood's 'Two Tribes'.
The Weeknd's 'Starboy' rebounds to No.5, NEIKED climbs five places to No.6 with 'Sexual' and MTV Brand New For 2017 nominee JP Cooper grabs his UK Top 40 solo debut with 'September Song' climbing this week to No.16.
Good work everyone.
