Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ Reaches New Peak On Billboard Hot 100

It’s all about her back catalog these days. Just last month, Mariah Carey finally saw justice for Glitter when it soared to No. 1 on iTunes, almost two decades after its initial release. Now, the 48-year-old diva’s holiday classic just achieved a new milestone. “All I Want For Christmas Is Yourises from No. 7 to No. 6 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100, setting a new peak for the festive track.

When it was initially released back in 1994, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” was not released commercially as a single, thereby making it ineligible for inclusion on the Hot 100. That rule lapsed in 1998. After the recurrent rule was revised in 2012, the holiday bop has re-entered the Hot 100 every holiday season. Last year, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” officially cracked the Top 10, climbing to No. 9.

In addition to achieving a new peak of No. 6, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” officially becomes the highest-charting Billboard Hot 100 holiday hit in 60 years. It only trails David Seville & The Chipmunks’ 1958 No. 1 “The Chipmunk Song” to become the all-time highest. “You” truly is the gift that keeps on giving for Carey. Years ago, it was reported Mariah had earned more than $60 million for the track. I wonder what the new updated revenue is.

Elsewhere on the chart, Ariana Grande clocks in a fifth week at pole position with “Thank U, Next,” holding off Halsey’s “Without Me” which rises to No. 2. Check out the rest of this week’s Top 10 below.
