Perrie Edwards is the only member of the X Factor formed girl-group who has yet to share a celebratory message on Instagram.
Glory Days takes over the all-female accomplishment this millennium from Destiny's Child's Survivor, which held on to the top spot for four consecutive weeks back in 2001.
Before Little Mix's success, the Spice Girls' debut album Spice spent a jaw-dropping 15 weeks at the number one spot back in 1996.

Meanwhile, when Glory Days' hit single Shout Out To My Ex first hit the airwaves last year, speculation quickly arose that Perrie was taking a jab at her ex Zayn Malik.
And while rumours continue to swirl that the lyrics mocked former One Direction star Zayn's sexual prowess, one of his younger cousins, Sasha Malik, appears to be quite a big fan of the tune.
Earlier this month, Sasha raised eyebrows when she tweeted lyrics from the song, before quickly deleting them on realising the controversy.

However, she was soon defending her appreciation for the song, stating on the micro-blogging site: 'The fact that the song is about Zayn doesn't cross my mind when I listen to it. To me, it's just a song.
'However, I will not hate on a person for having a past with a relative of mine. Both of them have now moved on. The world should too.'
And, in a move to show that her actions were not intended to be malicious, she added: 'Apologies to those genuinely offended by my tweet, I understand that it easily misunderstood, so shade though, ever.'

Over the past several months, there has been endless speculation that Perrie has taken swipes at her heart-throb ex in new Little Mix tracks.
However, Shout Out To My Ex garnered much attention, thanks to lyrics about a former boyfriend who's with 'some other chick'.
'I hope she getting better sex, Hope she ain't faking it like I did, babe,' the lyrics tellingly continued.
Zayne, 23, has found love with model Gigi Hadid, 21, since calling off his engagement to Perrie, 23, in August 2015. Perrie, meanwhile, is reported to be dating Arsenal footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 23.
And after Zayn had the tattoo of a cartoon Perrie removed from his bicep recently, she sings: 'Guess I should say thank you, For the 'hate yous' and the tattoos, Oh baby I'm cool by the way, Ain't sure I loved you anyway.'
Speaking previously about the track, bandmate Jade Thirlwall said: 'Shout Out To My Ex is a song that we're sure loads of people can relate to.
'It's all about moving on after a relationship ends to bigger and better things, and leaving the past where it should be.'
