Beyonce’s ‘Sorry’ Goes Platinum / Little Mix ‘Move’ Towards Epic Sales Milestone

Lyrics penned by Camille Purcelle and Maegan Cottone have helped Little Mix extend their sales lead over Fifth Harmony.

Good news for the Brit-Pop force and their Sony sibling Beyonce after the leap…

Little’s latest album, backed by the cuts ‘Hair’ and ‘Black Magic’ recently reached sales of 827,000 units worldwide.

Bolstered by their ‘Get Weird’ world tour, the album’s sales now sit just 173,000 units away from hitting the 1 million units sold milestone…a major feat in today’s commercial climate.

With these numbers Mix stand tall as the world’s leading girl group sans the support of a ‘Work From Home‘-sized smash hit single.

How their aforementioned tour fared?

Very well, pulling in $19,698,518 from 60 shows.

They aren’t the only ones making a sales splash for Sony Music Entertainment.

For, Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade‘-lifted single ‘Sorry’ has been certified Platinum in the United States for sales and streams of 1 million units.

That isn’t all.

Swimming in Gold waters are its sisters ‘Hold Up‘ and ‘Formation‘, both of which have sold over 500,000 units in the United States alone to date.

    The only sorry I know is by Bieber it actually hit # 1 too.

    • Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? October 9, 2016

      Perfect Delusion peaked at #15 then drop to 40 now it’s nowhere to be found.

      • Rima October 9, 2016

        Gaga doesn’t rely on singles to stay relevant.

      • HailLegendBeysus October 9, 2016

        @R***** lmao since when did Gaga not care for singles? Oh because she flopped and tumbled out the Hot100!!! Weren’t y’all boasting away about singles all year long? But come PI it’s a complete different tune! ??????

      • Rima October 9, 2016

        PL is pop/rock not a generic trap song like Shitty oops I mean sorry. PL is about quality, Shes not about trying to get a quick hit.

      • HailLegendBeysus October 9, 2016

        @Retãrd ???? Whatever helps you from committing like the rest of the monsters.

  2. TJ1991 October 9, 2016

    So basically Little Mix’s UK album sales outweigh Fifth Harmonys worldwide album sales?

    • Miss Thang October 9, 2016

      Basically. It’s kind of shocking.

  3. ??? October 9, 2016

    Rihanna is shook

  4. FanSlaysia 1997 October 9, 2016

    5H need to come with some substance because the s** kitten act isn’t working for them at all. How can a U.K. Based group without a global hit sell more tickets and albums than a group who literally travelled across the world to promote an album that tanked WITH a hit.

    • Sandra October 9, 2016

      I think the bodysuits and hair flicking as well as trying to be s*** with limited s** appeal just doesn’t work. I think Little Mix seem to be more accessible and down to earth image wise as well as catchy songs that appeal to tweens and adults

  5. ? October 9, 2016

    So they outsold ANTi? ??? Triple wow.

  6. Career Ender October 9, 2016

  8. Kiki October 9, 2016

    Again how many #1 hits does flopyonce have? Come at me with all da receipts ?????

    • Kris October 9, 2016

      She has 9 #1 hits… 6 consecutive #1 albums. Still selling 400k+ pure sales in one week. Unlike other artists who have #1 1.29 singles but poor album sales. Are you made Beyoncé can push a whole body of work based off celebrity and star power and not a measly single…

      • Wayno October 9, 2016

        SORRY ( pun intended)

        not 9 solo #1s….

        if MJ can’t include the JACKSON 5

        If DIANA can’t include the Supremes

        You can’t Include DC

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler October 9, 2016

        @wayno

    • Career Ender October 9, 2016

      On a scale from 0.001 – 0.01 how relevant are you in TGJ again dear troll?

  9. cocobutta October 9, 2016

    Little Mix are bossing it live with their shows. Vocal blends are excellent and some bring some good routines.

    Be good for them to have a mega hit though to go with level of Album sales.
    Black Magic did well I think

  10. HailLegendBeysus October 9, 2016

    Congrats Bey!!! Hold Up and Formation are also certified Gold! Formation will def be getting a Platinum Certifications soon!

    • Career Ender October 9, 2016

      Have you seen how a certain fanbase went into hiding due to the severe Floppage their fav has sustained this era?

      • HailLegendBeysus October 9, 2016

        Yes! I can’t with Dang Wa renouncing his Monster membership! ????!!!
        .
        All her monsters have committed and left Fadga. At least when Bey “flopped” with 4 the Hive stuck it out and stayed true to her! Idc when Bey flops! I’ll always stan by her and her art. She done did everything she could possibly do with her career. Her name is cemented. But you know these other stans can’t relate so they try to discredit our fav! Lmao!

  11. Kiii October 9, 2016
