Little Mix Make U.K. Chart History

Little Mix snags a slice of chart history by becoming the girl group to clock up 100 weeks in the U.K. Top 10.

The reigning BRITs group of year reach the magical milestone this week with “Heartbreak Anthem,” their collaboration with Galantis and David Guetta, which slips 3-7 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart.

The trio has bagged a whopping 18 U.K. Top 10 singles, including five No. 1s, most recently with “Sweet Melody” scaling the summit in January.

Little Mix are well ahead of the next-closest competitor in chart history, Girls Aloud, who’ve notched 61 weeks across their 21 Top 10 singles, the OCC reports. Next up, The Supremes (59 weeks), Sugababes (57 weeks), and Spice Girls (50 weeks), respectively.

The chart feat caps a headline-grabbing twelve months which has included a lineup change, their history-making Brit Award, and the unveiling of a waxwork at Madame Tussauds.

The trio of Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwal got their break on in 2011 by becoming the first group to win the U.K. version of The X Factor. Co-founding member Jesy Nelson left the act in December 2020 citing mental health struggles.

iTunes R&B Sale Sends Otis Redding, Mariah Carey & Aretha Franklin Back Onto Charts

In the wake of Apple’s iTunes service offering a 69-cent sale price for many R&B songs, several tracks that span from 1960s classics to 2010s hits flood Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart dated July 31.

iTunes R&B Sale Sends Otis Redding, Mariah Carey & Aretha Franklin Back Onto Charts

In the wake of Apple’s iTunes service offering a 69-cent sale price for many R&B songs, several tracks that span from 1960s classics to 2010s hits flood Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart dated July 31.

The digital retailer has developed this sales campaign in recent months, rotating between musical genres or other designated song categories each week and discounting some of the best-known tunes to a 69-cent cost, down from the typical $1.29 price. Such marketing has already led to previously documented impacts on Billboard’s Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart in April, when rock tunes were the beneficiary, and in May, after the April 25 Academy Awards led to bargains for soundtrack songs.

Otis Redding’s “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” leads the R&B resurgence as it returns to the list at No. 3, having sold 7,700 downloads in the week ending July 22, according to MRC Data. Among notable feats for the recording, “Dock” posted four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1968 and became the first posthumous leader in the chart’s history, as Redding died in December 1967 in a plane crash.

Including “Dock,” 13 of the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart’s 25 positions can be traced at least in part to the iTunes discount. Here’s a full rundown of the markdown’s impact:

Position, Song Title, Artist
No. 3, “Sittin on the Dock of the Bay,” Otis Redding
No. 4, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell
No. 6, “Suga Suga,” Baby Bash featuring Frankie J
No. 9, “Easy,” Commodores
No. 10, “I’ll Be Missing You,” Puff Daddy & Faith Evans featuring 112
No. 13, “You Dropped a Bomb on Me,” The Gap Band
No. 15, “I Will Survive,” Gloria Gaynor
No. 16, “Respect,” Aretha Franklin
No. 18, “We Belong Together,” Mariah Carey
No. 20, “Starboy,” The Weeknd featuring Daft Punk
No. 22, “The Way I Are,” Timbaland featuring Keri Hilson
No. 24, “I Got You (I Feel Good),” James Brown and the Famous Flames
No. 25, “I Want You Back,” Jackson 5
