Michael Bublé gave us one of the most popular holiday albums of the 21st century with Christmas, and he’s still topping the charts with this record over a decade later. Christmas entered 2024 atop the UK Official Albums Chart, scoring its sixth non-consecutive week at No. 1.

Christmas was originally released in 2011, and saw Bublé putting his own twist on many beloved holiday classics, including “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”, “Holly Jolly Christmas”, “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”, “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”, and “Jingle Bells”.

Christmas spent three weeks atop the UK Official Albums Chart following its release in 2011, and it’s just as popular over a decade later. This holiday record returned to No. 1 in both 2021 and 2022, before making a festive comeback this holiday season and topping the UK chart for the sixth non-consecutive time.

Bublé’s Christmas has also been a mainstay on the US Billboard 200 chart this holiday season but never managed to soar to the top. It was the highest-ranked holiday album during the latest week on the chart at No. 2, with 78,000 equivalent album units earned, behind Taylor Swift’s 1989 (Taylor’s Version). It initially spent five weeks at No. 1 following its release in 2011.
