Cher, Brandy, Sabrina Carpenter & More Make Our Christmas List With Fresh Holiday Hits

We all know and love the Christmas classics, but you might need to find some extra room on your decorated mantel for some new holiday hits this year.

On the latest episode of the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast (listen below), Katie & Keith are chatting about five brand-new Christmas songs for 2023: Cher‘s “DJ Play a Christmas Song,” Jason & Travis Kelce’s “Fairytale of Philadelphia,” Jimmy Fallon & Meghan Trainor‘s “Wrap Me Up,” Sabrina Carpenter‘s “Santa Doesn’t Know You Like I Do,” and Brandy‘s “Christmas Party for Two.” All these songs or their parent albums are already making moves on Billboard‘s charts — including Cher hitting No. 1 on the Holiday Digital Song Sales, Adult Contemporary and Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales charts with “DJ” and Top Holiday Albums with Christmas. (The football-playing Kelce brothers have a chart-topper too: “Fairytale of Philadelphia” — their update of the Pogues’ “Fairytale of New York” from the charity album A Philly Special Christmas Special — hit No. 1 on Rock Digital Song Sales.)

Listen to the new episode below:

Also on the show, we’ve got chart news on K-pop boy band ATEEZ scoring their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 and Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” decorating the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week. Plus, could Nicki Minaj get her first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in more than a decade with her new album Pink Friday 2?
