Little Mix have made chart history after their album DNA debuted in the US charts at No. 4.

Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have beaten the Spice Girls, who previously held the record for having the best-selling debut album by a British girl group in the States.

In 1997, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Mel C, Mel B and Geri Halliwell shot into No. 6 with Spice.

But Little Mix have surpassed that after selling a whopping 50,000 copies of DNA, featuring their hit single 'Wings', across the pond.

Tomorrow (7 June), the girls will make their US TV debut by appearing on Good Morning America's annual Summer Concert Series, which will see them perform on stage in New York's Central Park.

They will be in amazing company, as Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Demi Lovato, John Legend, Pitbull and Selena Gomez are also set to take part in the event in the coming weeks.
