Little Mix is ready to take over America, and the release of their debut U.S. album DNA just might do the trick. As the first group to win U.K.’s The X-Factor, Jesy, Perrie, Jade and Leigh-Anne have practically become the next Spice Girls to those across the pond -- and us as well.

Chelsea Briggs caught up with Little Mix during their first trip to America to promote their single “Wings” and had a girl chat about their fans, boyfriends, collaborating with Missy Elliot, and what we can expect from DNA in May!

Considering this was Little Mix’s first trip to the States, they were completely taken aback by the amount of love they received from their American fans. “We always knew we had a lot of fans from Twitter and Facebook, but we didn’t realize the extent until we came out here and saw it for ourselves,” Jade explained about their Mixers.

There’s one group that just so happens to be from the U.K. and know a thing or two about taking on America, and that’s One Direction –- a.k.a. the band that Perrie’s boyfriend Zayn Malik is a part of. So what kind of advice did the boys have to offer before the ladies’ first trip? “They always give us advice, they’ve given advice from the very start. They’re so supportive,” Perrie said. “They just say, ‘Be yourself, go out there, have fun and enjoy yourself and it should go well.’”

Little Mix’s debut album DNA drops on May 28th. Be sure to check out their single “Wings” because, let’s be honest -– it’s pretty rad!
