LadBaby made recording history by getting Christmas number one for the fourth year in a row, becoming the first act to do so in the 70 years of the official Christmas chart.

LadBaby’s Sausage Rolls For Everyone ft Ed Sheeran and Elton John took the festive top spot, the Official Charts Company has confirmed.

The milestone means LadBaby has now surpassed previous records set by the Spice Girls and The Beatles, who are the only other groups to have won three consecutive Christmas Number One.

The novelty track is a parody of Ed Sheeran and Sir Elton John’s festive hit Merry Christmas, which had taken No. 1 on the singles chart for the previous two weeks.

The remake has generated over 136,000 chart sales since its release on Dec. 17, 85% of which was made digitally, and all proceeds from the song will go to The Trussell Trust, which campaigns to end food poverty by Britain.

LadBaby’s previous Christmas numbers include We Built This City (2018), I Love Sausage Rolls (2019), and Don’t Stop Me Eatin ‘(2020).

“Thank you for helping us raise visibility, fundraise and promote the Trussell Trust, UK food banks and helping support the 14 million people in this country who live below the line. of positivity.

“We couldn’t have done it without you.”

LadBaby’s track propelled the song he parodied to second place on the Singles Chart.

Last Christmas by Wham and All I Want For Christmas by Mariah Carey took third and fourth places.

In the album chart, Adele grabbed the top spot with her record 30 for the sixth week in a row.
