The Spice Girls have been dethroned by their fellow British girl group Little Mix.
With the release of their first album "DNA," the ladies became the first British girl group to land in the Top 5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 200 chart, reports DigtialSpy.com. "DNA" snagged the No. 4 spot on the chart, besting the Spice Girls' No 6. chart debut for their first album, 1997's "Spice."
During an interview with Billboard, the girls said that their new album was the perfect chance to share the same positive vibes that made the Spice Girls such a huge success in the '90s.
"When we were younger, we had the Spice Girls and groups like that to look up to, that had this really empowering message and made you feel really good about yourself," said member Jade Thirlwall. "And I think it's kind of about time that it was brought around again."
The group won 2011's U.K. version of the reality competition "The X Factor." They have seen great success since snagging the title. This includes seeing their debut single, "Wings," quickly jump to the top spot on the U.K. singles chart last year.
The group -- which is made up of Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinncok and Perrie Edwards -- are floored by the love they receive from their U.S. fans.
"Just seeing the amount of fans that we actually have [in the U.S.] is so overwhelming," Nelson told Billboard. "When we go to our signings, it's crazy -- like, we feel like Justin Bieber when we go. It's crazy, and we've never felt like that before, and it's just amazing."
Little Mix's album sold 50,109 copies in the U.S. during its first week. The album has also reached the Top 5 in seven other countries.
