Little Mix's Official Top 10 biggest songs
18 October 2016 | By Justin Myers

They're back! To celebrate Little Mix's return, we count down their biggest singles.

A new era for Little Mix gets under way this week with the release of new single Shout Out To My Ex.

But while we wait to see whether the track will give the band a ninth Top 10 single or maybe even a fourth Number 1 we look back at some of the big songs that put them on the map. It's their all-time Top 10 biggest songs, based on combining their physical and download sales with streams.

Before we uncover the full Top 10, let's have a closer look at the Top 5:

5: Cannonball
Here's where the journey began, with the ladies' first ever single, following their X Factor win in 2011. A cover of a Damien Rice track, Cannonball just missed out on being the Official Christmas Number 1, as it was knocked off the top by Gareth Malone and the Military Wives' Choir. It's the band's second biggest seller, with 484,200 sales, but factoring in its 1.18 million streams its release pre-dates the era when streaming began to count toward the chart it comes in fifth.

4: Move
The amazing lead single from second album Salute, with, depending on how you look at it, no chorus at all or about 10 choruses all playing at once, missed out on a Number 1 placing, hitting Number 3. It's sold 410,795 copies and racked up 9.07 million streams.

3: Wings
The band's proper launch single that told the world what we could expect from the band was their second Number 1. It had horns, harmonies and chutzpah. It's the band's top seller if we're talking downloads and physical sales, with a tally of 525,300. Since 2014, when we began counting streaming toward the chart, it's racked up 5.2 million listens, leaving it in bronze position on their all-time rundown.

2: Secret Love Song
We're almost bang up-to-date with our runner-up song, which saw our faves teaming up with Jason Derulo for this heartfelt duet. Their most recent single went Top 10 earlier this year, peaking at Number 6. Talking sales, it's shifted 273,969 copies, but it's streaming that's given it a boost, with 33.36 million plays.

1: Black Magic
Of course! It had to be. Their monster hit from summer 2015 spent three weeks at Number, their first chart-topper since 2012. From the '80s vibe, the catchy hooks and slick production to the high-school movie pastiche video, everything about Black Magic was tailor-made for huge success. Its sales tally stands at 477,824 and Black Magic has charmed its way to 44.57 million streams.

Here's Little Mix's Official all-time Top 10:

TITLE PEAK YEAR
1 BLACK MAGIC 1 2015
2 SECRET LOVE SONG 6 2015
3 WINGS 1 2012
4 MOVE 3 2013
5 CANNONBALL 1 2011
6 LOVE ME LIKE YOU 11 2015
7 HAIR 11 2015
8 DNA 3 2012
9 SALUTE 6 2013
10 LITTLE ME 14 2013

Thanks Liam!

Annoying we got nothing for Salute, and these are all only pure sales.

Crazy how low pure sales are in general though, shocked Black Magic isn't even at 500k!

It is quite shocking how much of the sales are down to streaming and they weren't even that big with streaming in the Get Weird era.

Interesting that here Love Me Like You is ranked higher than Hair. There must be barely any copies in it....

It's okay! Yeah I was pretty gutted that there wasn't any totals other than the Top 5, which we already knew from last month. At least we got a sales and streams split for them.

Well that solves the question of whether or not Move had overtaken Cannonball. Yeah pretty shocking how low pure sales are

The girls should capitalise by putting some of their lesser selling hits on a 59p deal on iTunes. Get Word Up, How Ya Doin?, Change Your Life, Salute and Little Me all on there - rack up them coins.

That top 5 is astonishing. Especially for a manufactured girl band like them! So pleased for them and I'm ecstatic that their most recent efforts are the top 2 sellers (and comfortably so, too!)

Less than 23k for Wings to get Platinum. The way things are going it won't be long before Shout Out To My Ex breaks into their Top 10
