Little Mix are proving to be unstoppable as it has just been announced that they have broken another incredible chart record.
According to OfficialCharts.com, their fourth studio album Glory Days has spent 69 weeks in the top 40 of the UK Albums chart so far, making it the longest reigning top 40 album by any girl group in history.
Little Mix have overtaken the Spice Girls and Eternal to break this record. They previously held the title after their albums Spice and Always & Forever respectively racked up 63 weeks in the top 40.
Jesy, Perrie, Jade and Leigh-Anne have also overtaken the likes of the Supremes, Destiny’s Child, All Saints, Pussycat Dolls and Sugababes. In the process, they have also bypassed their third studio album Get Weird, which is the sixth longest reigning girl group album, notching up 55 weeks in the top 40.

Glory Days was originally released in November 2016 and features the hit singles ‘Shout Out To My Ex’, ‘Touch’, ‘No More Sad Songs’, and ‘Power’. The album went straight to the top of the charts, marking Little Mix’s first number one album, and spent five non-consecutive weeks at the top. The 3x platinum album dropped out of the top 40 on one occasion, however, the following week it was back in the top 10. Glory Days was reissued as a platinum edition in November 2017.
Little Mix recently revealed that they are working on their fifth studio album, which will be released later this year. Can it emulate the success of Glory Days? We definitely think so!
