Little Mix’s Shout Out To My Ex debuts at Number 1: “Mixers – this one’s for you”

The group charge to the top of the chart to claim their fourth Number 1.
Congratulations to Little Mix, who land straight in at Number 1 on this week’s Official Singles Chart with Shout Out To My Ex.
The track notched up an impressive 95,000 combined sales to take the top spot this week following the group’s show stopping performance of the song on last Sunday’s X Factor results show. 67,000 of its sales were downloads – the biggest opening week download sales for a song this year.
Shout Out To My Ex marks Little Mix’s fourth Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart, following Cannonball (2011), Wings (2012) and Black Magic (2015). Click here to check out Little Mix’s full Official Chart history.

It’s only the third track to debut straight in at the top this year, following Zayn Malik’s Pillowtalk in February and Major Lazer, Justin Bieber and MO’s Cold Water in August. Little Mix’s feat is made all the more impressive given that the song was released on Sunday evening, giving it little over four days of sales.
