LadBaby have announced their bid to break a long-held Christmas Number 1 record with their new single, out next week.
Sausage Rolls For Everyone comes as a last-minute entrant into this year's battle for Christmas Number 1, and will also feature Ed Sheeran and Elton John as a humourous, sausage-roll based remix of their current festive duet Merry Christmas (which was funnily enough earmarked as one of the favourites to clinch the Christmas Number 1 this year).
Apparently, Ed had reached out to LadBaby following their historic third consecutive Christmas Number 1 last year, and the plan was made for a very festive team-up to see if they could break the all-time chart record.
If Sausage Rolls For Everyone does indeed become this year's Christmas Number 1, LadBaby would make Official Charts history as the first act to ever score four consecutive Christmas Number 1 singles.
As it stands, the Youtube stars currently tie with The Beatles and Spice Girls, all with a consecutive hat-trick of Christmas Number 1s each. They previously reached Number 1 with We Built This City (2018), I Love Sausage Rolls (2019) and Don't Stop Me Eatin' (2020).
Mark and Roxanne Hoyle (aka the husband and wife duo behind LadBaby) said in a statement: "We always said we’d only go for a fourth number one if we could make it bigger and raise even more money for the Trussell Trust.
"We approached Ed and Elton with an idea to do something that had never been done: to combine the music world with the social media world and join forces to make a difference to the people in the UK that need it most!
"Ed and Elton are pop royalty and they’ve both had huge success at Christmas, so we’re honoured and excited to be coming together to help families this Christmas and bring back some true Christmas spirit with the power of sausage rolls!"
Ed Sheeran added: "I’m proud to be supporting and featuring on LadBaby’s very fun rework of Merry Christmas. All profits will be donated to The Trussell Trust which is a very wonderful and important charity, so make sure you stream it, buy it and play it on repeat."
100% of the song's profits will go to The Trussell Trust, a food bank charity that who are campaigning to end poverty in the UK.
Sausage Rolls For Everyone will be released next Friday (December 17). The 2021 Official Christmas Number 1 will be announced on Friday, December 24. The full Christmas Top 40 will be counted down on BBC Radio 1's Official Chart from 4pm.
