Christmas Still Dominating Billboard Charts
We needed a little Christmas, every single minute, and more than ever this particular year.
As many continue to celebrate the season even into the beginning of the new year, that festive fanfare is reflected in recent new data from Billboard. It shows that 9 of the current Top 10 and 39 of the Hot 100 singles this week are holiday-themed tunes. That's an all-time record, according to CBS2. Following are the Top 10 Billboard singles for the week to end January 2, 2021. Thank you for having once again made 104.5 KDAT The Christmas Music Station for Cedar Rapids and Eastern Iowa this year. Happy Holidays!
