Little Mix, in many ways, is an anomaly.
For, in a world in which the world’s biggest acts find themselves reliant on streaming services to impact the charts, the stage-blazing supergroup sees the lion’s share of its gains rise from pure sales.
Now, as they gear up to drop their latest album ‘LM5‘, they have learned that their latest single ‘Woman Like Me’ is crushing the competition just hard as on Spotify as it is on iTunes.
Positive news for the Brit-Pop superstars below…
The Nicki Minaj-backed cut has been streamed 36 million times ($144,000) to date on Spotify alone and, with help from iTunes purchases, rose six places on the Official Charts to claim a new peak position of #2!
Not bad for a “local” girl group, eh?
With this, Minaj extends her lead as the highest-selling/charting female rapper in global chart history and pushes her even closer to becoming the first and only rappers (male or female) to spend 300 weeks in the Top 40.
Each and everyone of the group’s singles can boast of earning Gold and Platinum certifications. It now seems ‘Woman’ is on its way to doing the same.
