Shout Out To My Ex was the first single from Little Mix’s 2016 album Glory Days. It was the follow up single to Black Magic which reached Number 1 in 2015. Demand was high and it flew straight in at Number 1 in the chart where it was present for three weeks. It enjoyed eleven weeks in the Top Ten altogether. At one point it left the Top Ten and then re-entered a week later!

The single sold well during the Christmas period and on 30th December 2016 the single was announced as platinum-selling.

The single stayed in the chart until the summer and enjoyed great radio airplay.

We estimate that it reached a million combined sales in around July 2017.

By September 2017 combined sales were 1,070,835 which included 373,706 downloads.

Mirrors was the second single from Justin Timberlake’s 2013 album The 20/20 Experience. The first, Suit & Tie, was released in January. Mirrors was quickly released a few weeks later and entered the chart at Number 28 before rising to Number 4.

Tiumberlake then performed the song at The Brit Awards and it suddenly caught on in a big way and it leaped to Number 1 where is stayed for three weeks altogether.

It enjoyed eight weeks in the Top 10 and it didn’t leave the Top 100 until October that year.

The song is quite unusual in that it was over 8 minutes long and did not, at first, have a radio edit, meaning that radio stations had to fade it out.

By November 2016 the single had combined sales of 929,000.
