Little Mix Q&A
Little Mix's Jesy Nelson answered our burning questions about 'Glory Days,' internet trolls and leotards.

Little Mix just made history. Fourth studio album Glory Days has topped the UK albums chart, beating out Metallica‘s Hard Wired … To Self Destruct and Bruno Mars‘ 24K Magic.

Not only is Glory Days Little Mix’s first #1 album, but with 96,000 copies sold during its first week, it is the fastest selling album of 2016 since David Bowie‘s Blackstar back in January. Glory Days also had the highest first week sales for a #1 album by a girl group since 1997’s Spiceworld by Spice Girls.

How did this happen? Ahead of Glory Days‘ November 18 release, lead single “Shout Out to My Ex” topped the UK singles chart, selling more than 100,000 copies, while hitting the iTunes top 10 in 46 countries.

Your reaction to #GloryDays has been bloody incredible and we’re so grateful to every one of you that’s supported our journey over the past 5 years,” Little Mix said on Instagram. Watch the record-breaking girl group celebrate below.
