Ben Haenow’s Something I Need holds off stiff competition from the likes of Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk, The Pogues, and last minute surprise contender, The Wealdstone Raider, to claim the 2014 Christmas Number 1 crown.
First he wins The X Factor, now he’s Official Christmas Number 1, it’s not been a bad old month for Ben Haenow.
And, with a combined chart sales figure of over 214,000, Something I Need – whose proceeds go to charity Together for Short Lives - is now the second-fastest selling single of the year, behind Band Aid 30’s Do They Know It’s Christmas?, which shifted nearly 313,000 copies in its first week back in November.
“To have even been in the running for Christmas Number 1 against some of the names that were in the race, and then to have actually won is incredible,” Ben told OfficialCharts.com, “It’s an incredible end to my year.
“I’m gonna go and have a few good drinks with my mates…definitely more than a few good drinks… to really celebrate! I’m absolutely shocked, I can’t believe it.”
