Carey’s holiday classic lifts 2-1 to close out the festive season Down Under, leading an all-Christmas top 5 on the ARIA Chart, published Friday, Dec. 29.

Last week, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” was pipped for the Christmas No. 1 by Jack Harlow’s “Lovin On Me” (Atlantic/Warner). By completing its chart climb, the hit from 1994 boasts a sixth successive year reaching No. 1.

The top five on the latest tally is rounded out by Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” (up 5-2 via Warner/Universal), Wham’s “Last Christmas” (up 4-3 via Sony), Michael Bublé’s “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas” (up 10-4 via Reprise/Warner) and Ariana Grande’s “Santa Tell Me” (up 7-5 via Universal), respectively.

Harlow’s “Lovin On Me” dips 1-7, ending a six-week stint at the summit. It’s one of just two non-Christmas titles in the current ARIA Top 20, the other being Tate McRae’s “Greedy” (RCA/Sony), down 3-15.

A handful of new tracks impact the survey, all of them Christmas-themed. Among them is Cher’s “DJ Play a Christmas Song” (at No. 45 via Warner Music), which has already established chart records for the pop icon in the U.S. and U.K. Its parent LP Christmas, Cher’s 27th studio album, is the top new release of the week, opening at No. 40 on the ARIA Albums Chart.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift’s 1989 (Taylor’s Version) (via Universal) holds at No. 1 for the ninth consecutive week, extending its lead as the longest running No. 1 LP of the year in Australia.

Swift owns every title in the top 5 on the ARIA Chart, with the exception of Bublé’s double-diamond certified Christmas (Reprise/Warner), up 4-2. Count them up, Swift has seven of the top 10 albums.
