Watch out for all the lambs, this one is for you! We all know that the ridiculously popular Christmas classic by Mariah Carey, “All I want for Christmas is you,” is just as popular today as it was 25 years ago. However, despite the endless music record and Guinness records, it has never reached the number on Billboard … until now.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Mariah Carey’s ultimate Christmas anthem, “All I want for Christmas is you” – and the self-proclaimed Christmas Queen has another reason to celebrate the song. Since this week, it’s officially (and finally) the number one song in the country, topping the current Billboard Hot 100 charts. It was the first Christmas song to reach the top of the charts since “The Chipmunk Song” in 1958.
It also marks Mariah’s 19th song number one, which now means she’s just one song away from breaking the Beatles’ overall record of 20 numbers one. Mariah dominates the Hot 100 for the first time since April 19, 2008, when her 18th number one, “Touch My Body,” spent her second two-week summit.
When it was first released on Mariah’s 1994 album “Merry Christmas”, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” was not a commercially available single and due to the rules of the time, it was not eligible to appear on the Hot 100, even though it reached number 12 on the Radio Songs chart that year. In December 1998, when the album clippings became eligible for the Hot 100, the song entered the charts for the first time on January 8, 2000, spending a week at number 83.
We are sure that Mariah will have a very merry Christmas with this news!
