Frank Sinatra hit another music milestone — 25 years after his death.

The 13-time Grammy winner, who died in May 1998 at 82, just hit this year’s Billboard Hot 100 top 20 with his 1948 recording of "Jingle Bells."

The recording climbed from the No. 28 to No. 20 slot on the Hot 100 dated Dec. 23, reports Billboard. Sinatra’s Christmas tune became his fourth Top 20 Hot 100 hit and his first song to reach the Top 20 since 1967.

From Dec. 8 to Dec. 14, the late crooner’s song streams increased by 19%, totaling 16.9 million U.S. streams. Additionally, the song has reached 15.3 million all-format radio audiences and sold 1,000 downloads, per Luminate, according to Billboard.

The song was written by James Lord Pierpont and published in 1857.
