Last year’s X Factor winners Little Mix have claimed that they want to become the biggest girl band in the world. Former X Factor contestants One Direction have already dominated the world of the boy bands and Little Mix hope that they can follow in their footsteps.
Leigh Anne Pinnock told We Love Pop magazine, “I want us to be the biggest girl band in the world. You've got to aim high. I'd like to achieve that within three years.”
Meanwhile, Perrie Edwards added, “One Direction have kind of opened up the gates for everyone else, hopefully. We'll see.”
One Direction have been breaking records since they came onto the music scene and their new album Take Me Home has topped the charts in both the US and the UK. Also, their new single Little Things, which was written by Ed Sheeran, is proving popular around the world.
Little Mix are hoping to match One Direction’s success with their debut album DNA, which is out now. They girls are currently preparing for their tour, which begins in the New Year.
Do you think Little Mix will be as big as One Direction?
