Little Mix have now reached a milestone that puts them on par with famous British girl group Spice Girls – after the band’s latest track, ‘Reggaetón Lento’ went platinum.
The single is a collaboration with Latin pop band CNCO, who were first introduced to the UK back in December by Simon Cowell on The X Factor.
Back then, the Spanglish track with Little Mix was sat at number 19 on the UK single charts, but after appearing on the ITV talent show, it’s only gone up and has now became a certified platinum by the BPI.
According to MTV, eight of the Spice Girls’ 11 singles have been certified platinum – tracks that have sold over 600,000 copies.
And now Jade, Lesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie have achieved the same success level as Mel C, Mel B, Victoria, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton.
Their tracks ‘Wings’, ‘Black Magic’, ‘Secret Love Song’, ‘Hair’, ‘Shout Out To My Ex’, ‘Touch’ and ‘Power’ have all achieved platinum status.
We’ll wait and see what else Little Mix have got in store for us this year, but it could involve another collaboration – as it was announced in December that X Factor winners Rak-Su are very keen to work with them.
