About Little Mix:

Since 2011, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have established themselves as one of pop’s brightest acts.

Signature hits including “Move,” “Wings” and “Black Magic” - the latter becoming their third UK chart-topper, spending three weeks at the top last summer - have helped the band score over half a billion YouTube and Vevo views worldwide, alongside massive tours of the UK, Australia, Japan and the US – where their debut album smashed a record the Spice Girls held for almost two decades. 

In many ways it was their third album, 2015's "Get Weird", that was the real turning point.

Released in November, it crashed into the chart at Number 2, spent the rest of that year in the Top Ten and by August 2016 had become the biggest-selling album of their careers.

Bolstered by the retro loveliness of “Love Me Like You,” the heart-rending ballad “Secret Love Song” and a re-worked version of their anthem “Hair” featuring Sean Paul, it's an album that cemented the band's confidence in their own sound. Its immense success also meant they could head out on yet another arena tour, this time playing an incredible 60 shows across Europe (including another two sold out dates at London's O2 arena), Australia and Asia, and selling over 500k tickets. 

Their fourth album ‘Glory Days’ was released on November 18, 2016 and spent 5 weeks at No. 1 in the UK, becoming the millennium’s longest running No. 1 album from a girl group.

Lead single “Shout Out to My Ex” is a perfectly pitched kiss-off and shot straight to No. 1 on the iTunes Chart in over 10 countries following a sensational performance on the latest series of The X Factor UK. The song also climbed into the Top 10 on iTunes US Pop chart, the highest debut on the chart for the girls to date. “Shout Out to My Ex” also just recently won Little Mix their first-ever BRIT Award for British Single.

Little Mix is currently on tour in the US with Ariana Grande and will embark on a massive international tour later this summer and into the fall.
