Chart Check: Cher’s ‘DJ Play a Christmas Song’ Becomes Her First Hot 100 Hit in Over 20 Years

Published: Friday 29th Dec 2023 by Rashad

Who would’ve guessed a holiday song would turn into one of Cher‘s biggest hits this century?

Bolstered by an aggressive promotional trek that’s included performances of her latest smash ‘DJ Play a Christmas Song’ at the 2023 Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade, ‘Graham Norton,’ ‘Christmas at Rockefeller Center TV special,‘ and Royal Variety as well as interviews on ‘The Tonight Show,’ ‘The TODAY Show,’ ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show,’ and more, the tune eventually made history when it jumped to #1 on the Billboard Electronic/Dance chart.

Now, ‘DJ’ has penciled Cher into Hot 100 history books thanks to its inaugural appearance on the hitlist.

Appearing at #94 on the updated Hot 100, ‘DJ’ marks the first time a Cher single has spun onto the tally since 2002’s ‘Song for the Lonely.’

Here are the numbers that powered the placement.

  • Streaming ≈ 5 million U.S.-based streams
  • Radio Airplay ≈ 5.9 million audience impressions
  • Sales ≈ 4,500 digital downloads

Her 34th hit on the all-genre chart over six distinct decades, the Mark Taylor-produced holiday bop ultimately marks her 52nd overall entry when her Sonny & Cher hits are included.
