THE XMAS #1 RACE STARTS
12/15/20

The race to claim the U.K.’s Official Christmas #1 single is on, with Mariah Carey, Wham!, a new version of “Holy” from Justin Bieber, Jess Glynne and YouTube blogger LadBaby set to compete.

This week, Carey looks set to hold on to the top spot for a second week with “All I Want for Christmas is You” (Columbia), closely followed by Wham!’s “Last Christmas” (RCA)—either of which could claim the top spot next week.

In 2015, the Christmas #1 was between Bieber’s “Love Yourself” (EMI) and a charity release from The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir, with the latter emerging victorious. Now, Bieber has teamed up with his former rivals for a new version of “Holy,” the proceeds of which will be split between NHS Charities Together and the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Charity in recognition of the efforts of those on the medical frontline during the coronavirus crisis. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, the track will drop on Friday.

YouTube blogger LadBaby, who has claimed the Christmas top spot for the last two years, is returning for the third time with charity release “Don’t Stop Me Eatin’,” a comedic, sausage roll-themed take on Journey’s 1982 classic “Don’t Stop Believin’”: it, too, arrives on Friday.

Other potential winners include Glynne’s Amazon Original “This Christmas” (#3 midweek) and Bieber’s “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” from the same series (#7 midweek).

The winner will be crowned on Christmas Day.
