The U.K. coveted Christmas No. 1 single belongs to Clean Bandit, who remain steady at the summit for a seventh week with “Rockabye” (Atlantic/Warner), featuring Sean Paul and Anne-Marie. There's no change atop the festive album chart either, where Michael Ball and Alfie Boe's Together (Decca/Universal) starts a second week, becoming the best-selling artist album of 2016.
Clean Bandit's total combined units for “Rockabye” are now 589,000, according to the Official Charts Company, which reports that the track finished the pre-Christmas sales week 10,000 units ahead of Rag 'n' Bone Man's “Human” (Best Laid Plans). That climbs 5-2, in a week in which the traditional high-profile race for the Yuletide honors has been more muted than usual, since it was clear from early on that no one could catch Clean Bandit.
