Christmas Number One 2019- The Top 5

There were many contenders for this year’s Christmas Number One but there could only be one. Here are the top 5 in the Official Chart Top 40 for Christmas 2019.

5. Wham- Last Christmas

Last Christmas was first released in 1984 but since then, despite the song being very popular around this time of year, it has never achieved a Christmas Number One. After the death of George Michael on Christmas day in 2016, fans campaigned for the song to win the crown this year.

4. Dua Lipa- Don’t Start Now

This is the lead single on Dua Lipa’s upcoming second album, Future Nostalgia, set for release in 2020. The track was released on 1 November and peaked at number 2 in the Official Chart. It comes after a big year for the artist as she won two Grammy awards, including Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording.

3. Lewis Capaldi- Before You Go

The Scottish Singer-songwriter has had a big year this year. After being nominated for the Critic’s Choice Award at the Brit Awards, Capaldi achieved a number one single with ‘Someone You Loved’ which stayed at number one for seven weeks. He also released his debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, which also achieved number one for six weeks. To top it all, Lewis has been nominated for a Grammy in 2020 for Song of the Year.

2. Stormzy ft Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy- Own It

This is the fourth single released from Stormzy’s second album, Heavy is the Head. Since being released four weeks ago, the track has stayed at number 2 in the Official Chart. The album, which was released on 13 December, also reached the same position in the Official Album Chart.

Christmas Number 1. Ladbaby- I Love Sausage Rolls

Blogger and Youtuber Ladbaby claimed the Christmas Number One this year with a reworked version of Joan Jett’s I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll, with I love Sausage Rolls. This is not his first Christmas Number One, he also achieved the crown in 2018 with We Built This City by Starship, but with a Sausage Roll twist. The proceeds from downloads and purchases will go to The Trussell Trust, a food bank charity.
