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 477,824 (923,524)
2 SECRET LOVE SONG 6 2015 273,969 (607,569)
3 WINGS 1 2012 525,300 (577,300)
4 MOVE 3 2013 410,795 (501,495)
5 CANNONBALL 1 2011 484,200 (496,000)
6 LOVE ME LIKE YOU 11 2015
7 HAIR 11 2015
8 DNA 3 2012
9 SALUTE 6 2013
10 LITTLE ME 14 2013

Secret Love Song feels so odd at #2. They have many songs that feel bigger than that one.

It's due to streaming - look how big the streaming numbers are for the top 2 compared to the rest. In fact you can see the shift to streaming from their debut, to "Wings", to "Move" and to their most recent singles.

Black magic is a cracking pop song and truly deserving as their biggest seller.

I see Black Magic as Little Mix's Push the Button if that makes sense. It will be one of their signature songs for sure.

I don't like Black Magic - it sounds like a glorification of rohypnol

I did always wonder how they got away with targeting a song so blatantly about date rape to their young audience (and also there's a lyric in the first verse that alludes to prostitution).

I'm kinda surprised their new single is doing so well. Its not as good as any of their recent stuff.

Yep my fave LM song. Love it, and I'm old but you're never too old for a great pop song. Like their new one too. I'd buy a Greatest Hits cd by them.
