The Taylor Swift influence continues to weave its enchantment. Traditionally, it’s Taylor Swift herself securing number one hits on the iTunes charts, but this time, the spotlight is on Travis Kelce and his brother Jason, whose Christmas song, “Fairytale of Philadelphia,” has swiftly climbed to the pinnacle of the iTunes charts just hours after its release.
Unbelievably, Swifties, the devoted fans of Taylor Swift, are once again proving unstoppable, undoubtedly playing a significant role in propelling the song to its rapid ascent to number one.
To provide some context, last year, Philadelphia Eagles offensive linemen Lane Johnson, Jordan Mailata, and Jason Kelce collaborated on a Christmas album for charity titled “A Philly Special Christmas.” The album gained viral attention on social media, showcasing the trio’s surprisingly impressive singing talents.
With the Kelce-Swift connection gaining momentum, this year’s Christmas album is poised to reach even greater heights, especially with Travis contributing to the musical endeavor. While it remains uncertain if the song will claim the top spot on the Billboard charts, the most prestigious chart, it certainly doesn’t seem impossible. Swift fans demonstrated their ability to propel a four-year-old song, “Cruel Summer,” to number one this summer, showcasing their remarkable influence over the music charts.
As the Kelce brothers gear up for a highly anticipated Monday Night Football game next week, it’s evident that their talents extend beyond the football field. Perhaps, when they eventually retire from the gridiron, a musical career could be a promising pivot for the Kelce brothers.
