Little Mix break Spice Girls' US chart record
Former 'X Factor' contestants' debut album, 'DNA', enters in at Number Four
It's the highest ever debut for an British female group, beating the Number Six position the Spice Girls achieved in 1997 with their debut album 'Spice', according to Billboard.
The former X Factor contestants can also boast that 'DNA' has the highest entry for any female group's debut album since 2006, when Danity Kane's self-titled record entered at Number One. 'DNA' has sold over 50,000 copies in its first week.
