''Step Into Christmas'' is a UK Hit

Written by Chief Editor.

In this last tracking week of 2018 in the United Kingdom, up-and-coming talent Ava Max has scored her first No. 1 hit with the Sweet But Psycho. Behind that tune, just one other non-holiday single appears inside the top 10 across the pond, according to Forbes.

Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You is in second place, followed by Wham's Last Christmas and Kirsty MacColl’s Fairytale of New York.

Elton is further down the list. He closes it out with a new top 10 hit, though the song itself wasn’t recently released. Step Into Christmas finally breaks into the coveted region, placing at No. 10 for the first time.

Step Into Christmas, which was first released in 1973, is John’s thirty-first top 10 hit in his home country.
