Bruno Mars is looking for a fourth #1 hit single as lead artist in the UK with "Locked Out Of Heaven" this week, but he is facing some stiff competition. Little Mix, last year's winners of X Factor in the UK, are in the hunt hoping for their third chart topping hit. Little Mix's "DNA," the title song from the girl group's upcoming debut album, is looking to follow their cover of Damien Rice's "Cannonball" and the original song "Wings" to the top of the pop singles chart. According to the Official Charts Company, just 3,000 copies separated the sales totals of the two hits at the mid-point of the week. As of a result of these two hot songs, it looks like One Direction will have to settle for a #3 opening for their latest single "Little Things."
