British female singing troupe Little Mix are back at the top of the singles chart in their home country with their latest catchy tune, “Shout Out To My Ex.” The song previews the group’s upcoming fourth full-length album Glory Days, which is expected in about one month. “Shout Out” is the act’s fourth chart-topping single, following “Cannonball,” “Wings,” and “Black Magic,” the last two of which were also the first singles to be released from albums.
The girl group pushes fellow X Factor alum James Arthur down one rung to No. 2. His latest leader “Say You Won’t Let Go” topped the charts for a handful of frames, and is still going strong, only relenting to a massive new track from one of the most popular groups in the country.
Both “Closer” by The Chainsmokers and Halsey and “Starboy,” the latest from both The Weeknd and Daft Punk, make a move similar to James Arthur’s, in that they drop a single slot. Former No. 1 hit “Closer” is down to No. 3, while “Starboy,” which never quite made it all the way to the top, slips to fourth place.
