It’s a festive three-horse race for the UK’s No. 1 single this week as Mariah Carey, Wham! and Ed Sheeran and Elton John topped the Official Singles Chart.
There are just over 1,000 chart sales separating the three contestants (all former UK number 1 singles), with Mariah taking the lead as All I want for Christmas is you (1) are looking to extend their return to the top of the rankings, while Wham! follow with last christmas (2) and Ed & Elton Merry Christmas (3) close the march.
Stormzy prepares to hit a new personal best with her new single fire baby about to go up four to number 5.
Lizzo could get the third UK Top 10 single. His take on Stevie Wonder One day at Christmas, an Amazon Music Original this festive season, could be this week’s big winner; currently twenty-two (9).
Kelly Clarkson’s original and glamorous Christmas song Under the tree took its time getting ready to become a party staple, but the track from 2013 looks set to reach its all-time high in the UK this week (14).
Following the release of his long-awaited second album S.O.S.two SZA titles could enter the Top 40; Kill Bill (24) and Nobody understands me (25).
