Little Mix is set to make history in 2021.
In August, they became the only girl group to have at least one track in the top 10 of the official singles chart for 100 weeks.
The trio achieved the feat with their single ‘Heartbreak Anthem’, a collaboration with Galantis and David Guetta, which they released in May. It debuted at number seven on the UK Singles Chart this week.
Celebrating the group’s achievement, Pinnock shared a message to Little Mix fans saying: “Wow! This is amazing, and we wouldn’t have been able to do this without you guys. You never fail to blow us away – You are incredible and we wouldn’t be here without you. Thank you.”
At the BRIT Awards earlier this year, she made history again as the first British female group to win the Best British Group award. She used her speech to thank “all the incredible female bands” in the industry, past and present.
