Legendary rockers The Rolling Stones have made a triumphant return to the top of the UK albums chart, claiming the coveted Christmas Number 1 spot with their album “Hackney Diamonds”.

As the year draws to a close, the band, consisting of iconic members Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, and Ronnie Wood, celebrates this achievement. “Hackney Diamonds” initially secured the Number 1 position upon its release back in October and has once again surged to the summit as guitarist Keith Richards marked his 80th birthday this week.

In an exclusive statement shared with the Official Charts Company, The Rolling Stones expressed their gratitude: “It’s a wonderful way to round off 2023. Thank you to everyone for listening to ‘Hackney Diamonds’. Have a very happy Christmas and New Year!”

The resurgence of “Hackney Diamonds” sees Michael Bublé’s perennial favourite “Christmas” maintaining its strong presence at Number 2. Bublé’s album, housing the timeless holiday classic “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”, has held the top position for five non-consecutive weeks since its release in 2011 – there’s still a chance for it to reach the summit again as Christmas songs continue to be downloaded and streamed this week.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift ascends one spot to secure Number 3 with her reimagined album “1989 (Taylor’s Version)”. while reigning rap queen Nicki Minaj slips to Number 4 with her latest release, “Pink Friday 2”.

Adding to the festive spirit, Cher’s “Christmas” collection makes a significant jump, surging ten places to claim the Number 5 spot, establishing itself as a new holiday favourite for 2023 – we expect to see her Christmas songs on this album become a holiday staple in years to come, lining the Christmas playlists.

The Rolling Stones’ resurgence to the top of the charts with “Hackney Diamonds” marks yet another milestone in their storied career, cementing their enduring appeal and influence in the world of music.
