Michael Bublé’s Christmas Album Tops UK’s Official Albums Chart For Sixth Non-Consecutive Week

Michael Bublé returns to the top of the Official Albums Chart with his classic Christmas project, simply named after the season, “Christmas,” giving the album its sixth non-consecutive week at the top.

The seasonal classic by Bublé debuted at the top of the charts when it was released in November 2011 and stayed there for two weeks in December of the same year before rising to the top once more in January 2021 and December 2022.

This week, Taylor Swift’s 1989 (Taylor’s Version) rises to the number two spot. Since its release in November, the former chart-topper—which boasts the distinction of having 2023’s biggest opening week for an album—has remained in the Top 5 for nine weeks running, never dropping below Number 4.

A flurry of hits compilations make their way into the Top 5 this week: ABBA’s chart mainstay Gold: Greatest Hits climbs ten back into the Top 5 for the first time since September 2021; The Weeknd’s The Highlights climbs six spots to number 3; and Elton John’s 2017 collection Diamonds rises eight spots to number 4.

Olivia Rodrigo’s 2021 debut, SOUR, at number 12 and Fleetwood Mac’s 2018’s 50 Years – Don’t Stop, at number 13, both of which rose ten spots from their previous placements, are two other renowned collections outside of the Top 10.
