Mariah Carey’s ‘Merry Christmas’ Re-Enters iTunes Top 40….19 Years After Release

Published: Saturday 30th Nov 2013 by David

She may be hard at work on a brand new LP set for release next year, but this year has seen Mariah Carey‘s 1994 effort ‘Merry Christmas’ soar back towards chart glory…storming iTunes Top 40 today!

Good news for the Pop icon below…

Array

After earning a 5x Platinum certification for sales/shipments of 5 million US units sold, this morning saw the album enjoyed a renewed sales spike and soar to #36 on iTunes USA– doing so as the general public gears up to celebrate Christmas Day next month.

Currently outselling Britney Spears‘ latest studio album ‘Britney Jean’, the Walter Afanasieff produced effort now sits just one spot beneath Miley Cyrus’Bangerz’ as its lead single ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ arrives at #47!

The icon’s continued success with the project comes months after the release of ‘Beautiful’, the Miguel penned single which has now been certified Platinum in the United States for sales of over 1 million units.

Pulled from her forthcoming LP ‘The Art of Letting Go‘, the jam’s run on the charts marked one of many achievements scored by the Island Def Jam music group this year, responsible for Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus‘ and ‘Bijoux 22‘, the digital smash released by singer/songwriter Elijah Blake.

    • #beautiful November 30, 2013

      Beyonce hasn’t even been in the business for 19 years! Nice try though.

    • Name December 1, 2013

      Destiny’s Chid did a Christmas album didn’t they, I didn’t buy it not sure how well it did? But Mariah’s does well every year

  3. christinastherealtalent November 30, 2013

    This happens every year with her so its expected. Nothing to write home about.

  4. FreeBreezy November 30, 2013

    Why do we go through this every year, we know its the best Christmas Album since Jesus was born of course it slays

  5. Haha November 30, 2013

  8. Molly November 30, 2013

  9. Haha November 30, 2013

    When will Gaga?

  10. FreeBreezy November 30, 2013

    Not with the Britney Jean shade, its not hard to outsell and unreleased album

  11. Kisses Down Low November 30, 2013

    @Molly I didn’t realize Destiny’s Child were the only ones other than Mariah with Christmas songs. Be seated. Where is Ciaras CURRENT album at on the charts that’s the real question lol.

  12. Mwah November 30, 2013

    Mariah, Beyoncé and Rihanna’s old albums are all still out charting Ciara’s new album though ROTFL

  13. Mwah November 30, 2013

    We have Mimis Xmas album. Best Xmas album of all time this happens every year.

  14. Molly November 30, 2013

    @KissesDownLow i could ask you the same question about Kellys current flop. Atleast Ciara can say she has a hit on her album unlike Ugly horseland.

  15. Cake Like Lady Gaga November 30, 2013

    😆 Baked turkey season album singer…

  16. Molly November 30, 2013

    @Mwah does it look like i give a f***. not everything is about sales SLUUT!

  17. Kisses Down Low November 30, 2013

    Talk a Good Game is higher than Ciara though.

  18. Cake Like Lady Gaga November 30, 2013

    Petty Christmas sale singer…. 🙁

  19. Mwah November 30, 2013

    So why are you asking where Destinys Child is on the charts is when Ciara is NO WHERE to be found with a new album?

  20. Cake Like Lady Gaga November 30, 2013

    Holiday has been singer… 🙁

  21. kiki November 30, 2013

    The song is basic. Mooriah will always be behind Madonna and Celine.

  22. Molly November 30, 2013

    B**** that was in reply to Amandas bynes mind your own h**… Ciara is doing good remember she has that rock on her finger not Rihanna kiiii

  23. Cake Like Lady Gaga November 30, 2013

    Nothing to be proud hit singer… 😉

  24. kiki November 30, 2013

    That Kelly Hoeland fan shouldn’t be bashing other people when Kelly is the only one who has yet to score a Platinum album. Ciara, Rihanna, Beyonce, Mariah did it. When will Kelly? When will she sell 500 000 worldwide?

  25. Cake Like Lady Gaga November 30, 2013

    Nobody cares except Christmas singer…

    😆

  26. Molly November 30, 2013

    Talk a good game sold less then 10k more than Ciara and that was with the help of tryin to play the victim and have the general public feel sorry for her lame ass.

  27. Molly November 30, 2013

    @KiKi drag ha!!

  28. Cake Like Lady Gaga November 30, 2013

    Delusional hit singer…

  29. FYall November 30, 2013

    Quit the bull. I love Mariah but whoever owns this blog continues to shade her. Mariah wrote and co produced Every song on the album and also cowrote and co produced Beautiful with Miguel. You guys are so full of shade.

    • BarbzRUs November 30, 2013

      Troll alert! Hello Free Breezy.

    • ILOVEJAMESDEAN November 30, 2013

      At least she’s still relevant at some point EVERY YEAR. And she’ll continue to be relevant in the future when no one cares a s*** on Lady Gaga anymore. haha.

  38. Stephy Tha Lambily November 30, 2013

    Cake Like Gaga please have several seats

  39. King November 30, 2013

    What’s with the Britney shade though…that album hasn’t even been released yet..i swear this site jumps at any chance to shade Britney..but where is “The Art of Letting Go” on the iTunes charts????

    • Stephy Tha Lambily November 30, 2013

      The Art Of Letting Go Is A Horribley Produced Song… Mariah Carey is gonna have to put out some generic 2013 song to slay the charts. Todays taste in music form EVERYONE is horrible, Nothing beats 2005 and back music. Old music will continue to sell more than these days pathetic music including Mariah’s new horrible songs.

  56. britney stan November 30, 2013

    gaga flop ass will never last 10 years kii

  57. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 30, 2013

    Why is the Tranny stan trying it when it’s fave has to inflate sales on Twitter and brag about certifications for a severely over shipped album just to look “successful?” Not to mention how it’s holiday special flopped critically and ratings wise.

  58. Cake Like Lady Gaga November 30, 2013

    Nobody cares about her since Beyonce comes to steal her spotlight…singer.

    😆

  59. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 30, 2013

    Not the f*** keeping Lana in their mouths even while she’s nowhere to be found in the OP.
    Cierror still can’t sell out a Bojangles.
    Chartflop still won’t outsell Born To Die. Especially since it did worse in its second week.

  60. cake like lady gaga November 30, 2013

    How’s that search party for Lana’s missing grammies coming along?? Any luck finding those grammies??

  61. britney stan November 30, 2013

    lana and gaga are both drugged out s**** that wont make it 10 years in the industry

  62. Cake Like Lady Gaga November 30, 2013

    Bubbling Under Hot 100 Chart..singer. 😆

  63. Marcel November 30, 2013

    This album will chart for many many years to come around Christmas time because it is a classic… and she sings these songs oh so well…

    Check out “Dare” by new artist Marcel
    http://youtu.be/UjNYIt2znVo

  64. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 30, 2013

    I don’t see Tranny’s relevance anywhere, either. Only bullied homosexuals care about it anymore.

  65. britney stan November 30, 2013

    You act like lana relvant tho b****.

  66. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 30, 2013

    And you act like S****** Jean isn’t flopping everywhere.
    She still hasn’t sold out a single date on her 4K capacity Vegas casino act.

  67. cake like lady gaga November 30, 2013

    But where are Lana’s grammies though??

    I’ll wait

  68. FreeBreezy November 30, 2013

    Nope, I had nothing to do with this

  69. FreeBreezy November 30, 2013

    LIES!

  70. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 30, 2013

    Doesn’t change the fact that Gaga is currently being outsold by everyone in the game (including Katy, who has no Grammys whatsoever) and is a fading, coke-addicted, walking Madonna tribute show who is on it’s way to Cyndi Lauper status in about 2 years.

  71. Cake Like Lady Gaga November 30, 2013

    Lana who?

  72. Cake Like Lady Gaga November 30, 2013

    what was Lana last hit though?

  73. Brazilian Beyonce!! November 30, 2013

  78. ARTPOP 300k Only November 30, 2013

    lady Gaga is well-known for payola and paid for Grammies…

    Sad sad…sad.

  79. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 30, 2013

    Summertime Sadness is still top 30 with no promo even though it’s November.
    You should worry about SS outselling Awfulause even though the latter was in the top ten for 47292 weeks.

  80. ARTPOP 300k Only November 30, 2013

    Gaga paid Glamour Magazine for “Woman of The Year” title..

    Desperate? You be the judge…

  81. ARTPOP 300k Only November 30, 2013

    Applousy out of Top 10 in Billboard. Time to make a new album, GagGag…

  82. cake like lady gaga November 30, 2013

    U still haven’t answered me, where are Lana’s grammies?????

  83. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 30, 2013

    Born To Die worldwide second week: 198K
    Artpop worldwide second week: 132K

    Where did all the Little Cutters go? I thought they said it sold 1.2 million by now. At this rate Prism will outsell it by 2x.
    The gay suicide rate will skyrocket these next couple of months.

  84. ARTPOP 300k Only November 30, 2013

    Gaga is an art student and Artpop proves that even further…

  85. ARTPOP is an epic flop of the millennium November 30, 2013

    Gaga- 5 years 3 #1 hits
    Katy- 5 years 8 #1 hits

    Sit down….

  88. ARTPOP is an epic flop of the millennium November 30, 2013

    Where Artpop will be in December?

    Under “Reduced Further/ Clearance” section.

    🙁

  89. ARTPOP is an epic flop of the millennium November 30, 2013

    ARTPOP is an album with no #1 hit…

  90. ARTPOP is an epic flop of the millennium November 30, 2013

    OK so every year at christmas time she releases the song and people buy it because its a christmas song….Every year you guys say the same thing…..its a christmas song and its christmas time!…..sheesh.

  94. Lanadelreyslayss December 1, 2013

    Say what you want about Lana, but she’s slaying.

  95. Lanadelreyslayss December 1, 2013

    Where’s perfume thou?

  96. Lanadelreyslayss December 1, 2013

    Gaga is a f****** flop. Born This Way sold over 1 million copies, which included a discount for
    99cents per album. Yet, ArtFlop had no discount, and couldn’t even outsell bangerz.
    We all know Gaga is a discount queen, without them, she cannot sell.

  97. Super Cisus December 1, 2013

    F*** this quarterback built ass b****

  98. JOHNVIDAL December 1, 2013
