Elton John and Ed Sheeran were seen together, singing cheerful songs and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. It’s December already and the holiday music season has arrived in full force.
Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You is already at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. Other classic tracks are waiting to take the top spot from the “Queen of Christmas.” Maybe Ed Sheeran and Sir Elton John is going to dethrone Mariah and surpass her.
The singers were seen wearing matching outfits. They were wearing green, red, and white sweatsuits. Their outfit looked festive and indicated a sign that Christmas is here.
Ed changed his outfit into a Santa costume by Christmas trees before joining Elton on a sleigh. Ed ended up flying with a snowman before reuniting with Elton. As he sings on the track, Ed had a good night on his holiday adventure. Ed Sheeran and Sir Elton Jones announced their song officially on November 09.
They posted a Love Actually-themed video on Social Media. Ed appeared in the role of Andrew Lincoln in front of Elton’s doorstep aka Kiera Knightley with an armful of cue cards. The duo also announced that all U.K. profits from the song this holiday season will go to the Ed Sheeran Suffolk Music Foundation and the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
“Hello. Last Christmas, I received a call from my mate, Elton John, and he told me, and he told me we should do a ‘Christmas Song,’” read the first batch of Ed’s cards. “And I replied, ‘yeah, maybe in 2022.’ But I actually wrote the chorus that day. And here we are. Our Christmas song. ‘Merry Christmas.’… it has sleigh bells. A lot of them.”
Ed appeared in The Jonathan Ross Show at the start of November and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the next day. He was there to talk about his collaboration with Elton. He also shared how he was grateful for doing a holiday track. “I’ve always been quite against it,” “Not that I don’t like Christmas, I love Christmas, but in terms of doing a Christmas song, you need to chuck the kitchen sink at it.” He continued. This is not the first time for Elton, he has a record for releasing several top Billboard songs at Christmas.
Elton is also currently on the Billboard Hot 100. The PNAU remix of Elton and Dua Lipa’s “Cold Heart” is now at No. 11. Ed is also on the Hot 100, with “Shivers” at No. 6 and “Bad Habits” at No. 8. This Christmas Fans are acting as their secret Santa and are bringing a lot of happiness to Ed and Elton.
