In topping this week’s chart, “Rockabye” moreover earns the honor of being the UK’s official “Christmas #1.”

“To have been Number 1 for seven weeks is something amazing in its own right that we are all incredibly proud of, but to now be Christmas Number 1 is mind-blowing,” said Clean Bandit, per the Official Charts company. “It’s something we never imagined would happen with Rockabye when we were writing and recording it. Thanks to everyone who has made this happen! We hope you all have a Merry Christmas and New Year!”
