We love a good charity record here in the UK, and we’re pretty generous when it comes to coughing up 99p for a single. So much so in fact, that this year’s Band Aid single is shaping up to be one of the biggest sellers of the year.
The new cover of the 1984 festive classic – featuring the likes of 1D, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora and loads more – is currently leading the race on this week’s chart, selling a massive 206,000 copies according to the big wigs at Official Charts Company, since it was available to pre-order last week and officially released for download at 8am on Monday. Blimey!
It’s official: Christmas is well and truly upon us!
