Meghan Trainor, Cher & Chloe Bring New Holiday Cheer to the Hot 100


As nine festive favorites rank in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Dec. 30) – tying for the most in a single week – three new holiday recordings debut on the chart.

Meghan Trainor’s version of “Jingle Bells” dashes in at No. 81, marking just the second version of the standard ever on the Hot 100 – with the other, by Frank Sinatra, hitting a new high at No. 16.

Plus, Cher returns to the Hot 100 after 21 years, with “DJ Play a Christmas Song” at No. 94, and Chlöe’s interpretation of “Winter Wonderland” makes the song a Hot 100 hit for the first time, gliding in at No. 96.

Meanwhile, as previously reported, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” crowns the Hot 100 for a second consecutive week as it logs a 14th total week at No. 1, dating to its first coronation in December 2019. Notably, the modern Yuletide standard is Carey’s third Hot 100 leader of at least 14 weeks – as she becomes the first artist in the chart’s history with three such No. 1s.

Let’s unwrap the three new carols on the latest Hot 100 below.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data, the lattermost metric reflecting purchases of physical singles and digital tracks from full-service digital music retailers; digital singles sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites are excluded from chart calculations. All charts (dated Dec. 30, 2023) will update on tomorrow (Dec. 27, a day later than usual due to the Christmas holiday).
