Travis Kelce has achieved chart-topping success alongside his pop-superstar partner Taylor Swift, as their collaboration with brother Jason Kelce, “Fairytale Of Philadelphia,” secures the #1 spot on the Rock Digital Song Sales and Holiday Digital Song Sales charts, just two weeks after its release, according to a Billboard report on Tuesday.

The duet, a reimagined version of The Pogues’ ’80s classic “Fairytale of New York,” is featured on the upcoming charity Christmas album, “A Philly Special Christmas Special,” by Eagles offensive linemen Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson, and Jordan Mailata.

Described as “a tale of two brothers whose love for each other withstands the test of time,” as stated on the album’s Instagram account.

Travis shared his experience working on the song during the Oct. 25 episode of the brothers’ “New Heights” podcast, stating, “That song was fun. That song was actually pretty sweet, man. I enjoyed doing it. The guys, the team, came out and hung out with me in Kansas City for a few hours, and we knocked it out.”

Despite initial doubts about the recording, the song quickly rose to the top of the iTunes charts the day after its debut.

Jason and Travis Kelce expressed their gratitude to the Swifties, Taylor Swift’s dedicated fanbase, for the overwhelming success of ‘Fairytale of Philadelphia.’

On their podcast, Jason humorously acknowledged, “We owe a big thanks to one group in particular besides the 92 percenters. And that’s the Swifties. ‘Cause the Swifties came out.

I sent out one tweet when it got to eight, and I got, like, 85 tweets from Swifties across the world saying, ‘Oh, you think eight’s good? We’re taking this to #1!’ And they did. It’s a powerful group.”

Travis concurred, expressing his thanks to Taylor Swift and the Swifties for their support.

Simultaneously, Taylor Swift maintains her dominance at #1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart, with “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” holding the #2 spot on the Billboard 200.

Her single “Cruel Summer” recently dropped to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, with Jack Harlow’s “Lovin On Me” claiming the top spot.

The proceeds from the Eagles players’ “A Philly Special Christmas Special” will benefit the Children’s Crisis Treatment Center and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Notably, the previous album from the Eagles linemen, “A Philly Special Christmas,” raised $1.25 million for charity last year.

The much-anticipated album will be available on all digital platforms starting Friday, Dec. 1.
