  • Regarding The Kunts: not sure if legendary saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist Terry Edwards will actually get a credit for it by the OCC. He has no credit today. Buzzjack went from the iTunes listing yesterday. Edwards is not credited on the video but is credited on the 2 versions of the main recording (the video version and the shorter edit).
    Edwards was in Charlie Higson's band The Higsons in the early 80s (who had a top 100 hit with their cover of Music To Watch Girls By).

    Since that period he has appeared on hit albums by Farmer's Boys, Gallon Drunk, Tindersticks, Julian Cope, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Billy Bragg, Lush, Spiritualized, PJ Harvey, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Madness, The Proclaimers, Dirty Pretty Things, Hot Chip and was on Perfecto Allstars' hit version of Reach Up AKA Papa's Got A Brand New Pigbag. That's quite a list!

    Regarding Sidemen: Jme was credited on the original video but it turns out this version wasn't the actual single and has only now (last Friday) been released. This version gives Jme a co-credit and he should be listed by OCC but isn't. This is the version that was popular on YouTube in the first place and that's where their fame is from.

      Fingers crossed. It might finally put a stop to them.

      • I would LOVE if Wham! ended up Christmas no.1, and I don't even rate the song that much.

        • There's no Christmas effect on the charts, sales are low!

          • So i actually compared the original Sidemen video with the main upload and Jme is on both at the start. Only now the version that was released last Friday which credited him has been removed from sale! They've put the original back (it shows on iTunes Kworb chart as "NEW") that doesn't credit him! So it seems he doesn't want to be or can't be credited on the release despite being credited on the video.

            There are now 2 more LadBaby versions, 3 more Kunts and 4 more Sidemen.

              I think they have started to release remixes since today (already #2 on iTunes) so I think they'll defo be #1

                • Christmas with Cliff now £4.99 on iTunes.
                  Going for no. 1?

                  • I am happy for LadBaby to be number one and have the highest Xmas #1 records ever in UK history. It is ironic - sales are terrible and Xmas streaming is a farce, obviously only shopping centres, stores and working places play these songs over and over for 4 weeks a year, really pointless.

                    • Today, the Official Charts Company can confirm that LadBaby stays 12,000 chart units ahead of its nearest competition, and the UK's current Number 1 single, Wham!'s Last Christmas.

                      But the 2022 winner isn't a foregone conclusion yet. Overnight, Wham! have added a massive 8,200 chart units to their total, while LadBaby's impassioned push for fans to download Food Aid rolled out a new version featuring Bents Green School.

                        Christmas Number 1 2022: Wham!, The K**ts and Sidemen all continue to make gains on LadBaby - can anyone catch up?

                        It's still all to play for in the final 48 hours of the Christmas Number 1 race 2022.
                        By George Griffiths
                        Wham!, The K**ts and Sidemen all make gains today in the race for Christmas Number 1 this coming Friday, and we're forecasting further leaps by tomorrow too, based on data yet to be counted. Will any movement enough to catch up with LadBaby?

                        Following the start of the week - which saw classic hits by Wham! and Mariah Carey growing day-on-day - LadBaby, comprising married duo Mark and Roxanne Hoyle, are still leading the pack with charity track Food Aid as we the contenders campaign their way through the final 48 hours of the race.

                        Today, the Official Charts Company can confirm that LadBaby stays 12,000 chart units ahead of its nearest competition, and the UK's current Number 1 single, Wham!'s Last Christmas.

                        But the 2022 winner isn't a foregone conclusion yet. Overnight, Wham! have added a massive 8,200 chart units to their total, while LadBaby's impassioned push for fans to download Food Aid rolled out a new version featuring Bents Green School.


                        MORE: The contenders for the Official Christmas Number 1 2022


                        Today sees two new tracks - The K**ts' anarchic F*ck The Tories (8) and Central Cee's surprise drop Let Go (9) - gatecrash the latest midweek Top 10. The K**ts have managed to reach the Christmas Top 5 for two years running, will they make it a hat-trick in 2022?

                        Also earning ground massively over the last few days are YouTube supergroup Sidemen with their viral track Christmas Drillings featuring rapper JME. It's looking to be this week's highest climber on the Official Chart Top 40, up 20 places week on week, and up seven since Monday's Official Charts Update alone. Christmas Drillings now sits just outside the Top 20 at Number 21, but hitting the campaign trail hard with HMV in-store signings and more this week, Sidemen could very well be set to shake things up by Friday's final whistle. Just where will they finish? Check out our exclusive interview with Sidemen member Vik and JME here.
                        The 2022 Official Christmas Number 1 will be announced on Friday, December 23. The full Christmas Top 40 will be counted down on BBC Radio 1's Official Chart Show with Jack Saunders from 4pm.

                        The full Top 100 Official Christmas Singles Chart and Albums Chart will be published on OfficialCharts.com from 5.45pm.

                        • ^ bit weird how they go into so much detail about Sidemen when they are only crawling up to #21 but The Kunts did something far more amazing - they went down from 12 to 19 and then back up to number 8!! And Wham! still have a chance.

                                    • So, Christmas fare still very-much in command for the forthcoming chart then, although one assumes the vast majority of streams of the Top 10 came in the first four days of the chart frame. Presumably we shall be witnessing the bizarre across-the-board disappearance of the seasonal stuff a week later. While obviously we all recognise that this spectacular sudden dropping-off of Christmas songs the week after the event is due to the nature of how people listen through streaming, I am always surprised in retrospect now how long some Xmas tunes used to survive in the charts after 26th December, and indeed some weeks beyond even the last of the 12 days of Christmas (5th January), in the sales-only era. It was commonplace, even in the period when the chart turnover was very high and tenures were short, for some seasonal stuff to stay in the Top 75 until February. Why were people still purchasing that sort of thing in January or February, and in sufficient quantities to still cling on to a published chart placing? It seems funny now given the universal retreat of these songs within just a week. If people nowadays don't even want to stream it after Boxing Day, why in the past were they still buying it weeks after it? Although I didn't think much on it at the time, it seems very strange now.

                                      • ^ they were only buying it in small numbers - with some exceptions.

                                        You can still see Christmas songs on the iTunes chart but sales are low. With streaming they are driven by playlists and casual listening which drops off a cliff after Boxing Day.
