by Patria

After missing out on the Official Christmas Number 1 spot to WHAM! in 2023, Sam Ryder has surged ahead this week with his Amazon Music Original track “You’re Christmas To Me,” positioning himself for his inaugural UK Number 1 single. As the week progresses, the question remains: can he secure the top spot by Friday?

Ed Sheeran and Elton John’s “Merry Christmas” could make a notable rise, currently holding the fourth position. Similarly, The Pogues ft. Kirsty MacColl with “Fairytale of New York” and Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” may climb a spot each, currently at fifth and sixth positions, respectively.

Jorja Smith enters the mix with another Amazon Music Christmas Original, a cover of “Stay Another Day,” aiming to achieve her highest-peaking UK single at the seventh position.

Vermont native Noah Kahan’s “Stick Season” maintains a robust presence as the sole non-Christmas song in the Top 10 midweek, currently holding the eighth position on the Official Chart.

Ariana Grande, returning to the studio, is anticipated to make a debut in the Top 10 with her 2013 hit “Santa Tell Me,” poised to climb two spots to the ninth position.

Adding to the festive fervor, Kelly Clarkson’s “Underneath The Tree” is on course to achieve a new lifetime peak at the twelfth position.

In the Top 20, classic Christmas hits are making strides: Band Aid’s former Christmas Number 1 “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” at 14th, Elton John’s “Step Into Christmas” at 17th, and Chris Rea’s “Driving Home For Christmas” at 18th. These timeless favorites could see significant upward movement as the week unfolds, adding a nostalgic touch to the holiday chart.
