We imagine that Little mix aren’t the only ones jealous of One Direction.
Imagine if you were about to release a single, and you thought ‘yessss we’ve got this in the bag!’
And then you hear that One Direction are releasing a new single in the same week, what would you do?
Sit in a corner and cry that you have no longer have any hope of getting the number one?
We would, and we suspect that Little mix did something similar.
Considering that Little Mix and One Direction are like bezzies, it just goes to show that there is still mega rivalry between them.
Little mix member, Jade admitted that it’s ‘tough’ competing with the boys.
Well, they ARE the biggest boyband in the world, Jade.
Speaking to Digital Spy about their second single ‘DNA’ failing to reach the number one spot, Jade said: “We were kind of disappointed because it sold really well.
“I think it was just the timing because One Direction at the time shot straight to number one with ‘Little Things’ – it’s always hard to compete with the 1D lads. And we’re chuffed to bits for them; we’ve always been supportive of them.
“We were really happy with the sales but a little bit disheartened just because we worked so hard on that song. It is one of our favourites on the album and we kind of thought as well that ‘Wings’ was amazing and that was on the same level if not better.
“At the end of the day getting number one isn’t always everything. It’s more how you sell it over the weeks, isn’t it?”
Yes, it’s all about keeping positive Jade.
Even if you probably will never get the number one spot when One Direction are in the running, sorry.
But then again, who knows? We love Little Mix…just not as much as we love 1D 😀
