Little Mix released their first debut album DNA the following year in 2012 which had no hesitation in being a hit sensation with the public. The album charted top five in 8 different countries, and surpassed previous world known girls group Spice Girls’ record of having DNA chart at a higher spot in the U.S then their debut album SPICE. The following year of 2013 got even bigger for the British girls with the release of their second album, Salute. Their single, “Move” off of the Salute album took off and was a major hit throughout major countries once again.

    The best part about these girls is that they don’t have one default sound to their music, they experiment with all different kinds of tones and unique mixes. They dip into trap, old school R&B, a-cappella harmonies, bold emotional lyrics, and fun dance beats. These girls just keep getting hotter and hotter with both their style and music. This year in 2014 Little Mix gears up for their biggest UK tour yet which will hit major cities including the 02 Arena in London. Wishing them the best of luck!
