They have collectively had 28 UK Top 40 Singles, sold over 15 million records, accumulated over 1.5 billion streams and have contributed to 50 Top 40 albums.
Their records played major roles in Emeli Sandé and Little Mix breaking chart records, the former in the UK (the longest ever stay in the top 10 of the UK Albums Chart) and the latter in the US (highest debut ever for a British girl group). For the UK Olympics in 2012, TMS had the honour of having their song "Read All About It" performed by Emeli Sandé at the Closing Ceremony, also known as "A Symphony Of British Music". The song featured prominently, being performed twice and opening the show to a backdrop of a stadium covered in newspaper. Watched by a worldwide audience of 750 million people, the song rapidly climbed the charts the following day to become a UK #3, having already previously been a UK #1.
