Who's the better girl group of 2016: Little Mix or Fifth Harmony?
Little Mix has been on top of their game ever since they won the "British X Factor" in 2011. LM is back with a new single, "Shout Out to my Ex," which is the lead single from their fourth album, "Glory Days." The lead single has already topped the UK singles charts, following previous #1 hits "Cannonball," "Wings" and "Black Magic." The group has released three previous albums that have gone platinum in the UK: "DNA" (2012), "Salute" (2013) and "Get Weird" (2015).
If anything Little Mix is an in-sync group. Yes, all of the ladies sing lead and have great voices, but they can harmonize like no other and their voices, eclectic sound and overall styles complement each other. Sometimes, Fifth Harmony—the other top girl group—seem like a collection of singers as opposed to a cohesive girl group.
Fifth Harmony might have only made it to the top three on the "U.S. X Factor" in 2012, but they've been "better together" ever since. The ladies have grown up from young girls with big talents into empowered young women. 5H has released an EP "Better Together" in 2013 and quickly grew into official status with their debut album "Reflection" (2015) and gained even more momentum with their sophomore effort "7/27" (2016). They scored mega hits like "Miss Movin' On," "Bo$," "Worth It" and "Work from Home"—the latter being their top single ever. 5H has really brought back the empowered girl group to the U.S. Little Mix might be huge in the UK, but they've only had moderate success in the states. Little Mix are unique, but 5H definitely embody the fierceness of previous girl groups from the '90s.
