Little Mix is still living high off the success of their new album, Glory Days. The British girl group managed to make it to No. 1 for two weeks before they were knocked off the charts by legendary singer and songwriter Kate Bush.
According to Official Charts, Little Mix managed to score a second week at No. 1 on the Official Album Chart with their new release. This comes after it was reported that they achieved the highest first-week sales for a UK girl group since the Spice Girls' Spiceworld. Glory Days hit another 57,000 in combined sales in the past seven days and is now certified gold with over 100,000 copies sold.
Glory Days is the first No. 1 album for Little Mix, and the 24th No. 1 album from the X Factor U.K. Other X Factor Official Albums Chart this year feature releases from Olly Murs and James Arthur. Little Mix's lead single "Shout Out To My Ex," help the album rise to the top of the charts, according to Forbes. It's still in the top 10 on the singles chart after staying in the No. 1 spot for several weeks in October and November.Little Mix has since confirmed their next single off their album is called "Touch," which is produced by MNEK. The track is the second single from their fourth album, according to a separate Official Chartsreport. Check out a clip of the girl group announcing the news below.

"We absolutely love this track and your reaction to it has been absolutely incredible so it's a bit of a no-brainer and we knew it should be our next single," Jade Thirwall added.
Little Mix is also said to have their own "tell and show all" TV documentary about their personal lives, relationships, and music. The show is said to air sometime in 2017, according to The Mirror. Little Mix's bosses are currently working on the project and are hoping to land a deal with UK broadcasters. Alleged insiders claim that Syco Music wants to offer an "intimate look" into the lives of the four singers as they tour the U.S. and Europe, and then return home next year.
It could include tough subjects like Jesy Nelson's recent split from her fiancé of 18 months, Jake Roche, and Perrie Edwards' new relationship with footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain following her split from former 1D star Zayn Malik. Perrie, Jesy, along with Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirwall, allow to let cameras film them 24/6.
"We are in talks at the moment," Jesy said. "We really want to do a documentary as we feel people do not know much about us. They know our songs and have seen us perform, but they don't know our personalities, so we would love to do a documentary. We want to get someone to follow us around on this whole tour for a whole year."
Leigh-Anne said she would like to do a show similar to The Saturdays' show, Chasing The Saturdays, about their careers, but she does have concerns about being constantly filmed.
"Maybe we are saying this now but when it comes to it and the camera is being rammed in our faces we will be like, 'Leave us alone.'"She also added that fans will also get to see how the women react to the stress of their personal lives and their music career.
"And the drama," she added. "There is always drama in our lives. Honestly we actually don't ever get it on camera, do we? So that will be good for people to see that."
This announcement comes after Little Mix is said to release their tell-all memoir, Our World.
