In 2021, the British female pop group Little Mix kept rising to new heights. When founding member Jesy Nelson announced her departure from the group in late 2020, current members Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jade Thirlwall kept at it as a trio and landed another No. 1 single in the UK with Sweet Melody. In May, Little Mix became the first girl group to win Best British Group at the Brit Awards and paid homage to those that paved the way. On top of the historic win and celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their formation on The X Factor, Edwards and Pinnock became mothers, and a string of collaborations hit the charts ahead of the release of their greatest hits album and lots of new music. It's Little Mix's world, and we're just living in it!
