Stormzy on the brink of record breaking Christmas number one

Tell your Mum, tell your Nan, in fact tell everyone #ShutUp…

Well actually don’t do that, tell them all to go and download Stormzy’s track ‘Shut Up‘, which featured on his ‘WickedSkengman 4’ single, as he aims for that all important Christmas number 1 spot.

Year after year we can generally assume that the latest X Factor winner will hit that number 1 spot on Christmas Day, so this year, lets make things different and have a grime track up there. Stormzy’s #ShutUpForXMasNo1 campaign to get that chart success got off to a flying starting at the beginning of the week following the X Factor live final with the single entering the UK top 40, and it’s currently up to number 3 on the iTunes chart, beating X Factor winner Louisa Johnson.

If Stormzy was to hit the number 1 spot for Christmas, he would be the first Grime artist to ever do so, and would also set the record as the first ever number 1 Grime song. So make sure you download it here, because wouldn’t it be amazing for a UK urban artist to get the number 1 spot? We wish Stormzy the best of luck for the last few days of his Christmas campaign.
