    Queen Mariah has hits every single year and her career is over 20 years old. Ciara only had hits for three years then flopped, Lana has never had a hit and Rihanna can’t handle the fact that Chris is hitting Karate Chop from the back. SO DEAL.

  9. Its Gaga Ya Bish December 25, 2013

    Body Party made more impact than Beautiful did though.

  10. RosieStan December 25, 2013

    You’ve had one too many glasses of Alize if you think BP made more impact than Beautiful honey. BP is gold. Beautiful is Platinum. Back to ARTLOP land you go.

  29. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) December 25, 2013

    YESS @ queen slaying your faves (Beyonce, Icki, Ciara, Taylor) with this one single. Lol

    Dead @ Ciara Stans coming for #beautiful which went platinum in much shorter than it took Body Flop to be certified gold.

    This song is a worldwide hit… When will your faves??

  30. Stephy Tha Lambily December 25, 2013

    All I Want For Christmas Is You will outlast all yalls pop stars careers… LOL

  31. Lydia December 25, 2013

    I thought it sold that ages ago. For a classic christmas song on rotation every holiday season.

  32. anonymous December 25, 2013

    @cicifinnabeabride ciara wont even see 500k sold in 20 years. in any country. LOL.

  33. anonymous December 25, 2013

    I know these flopera hoodrat stans aint comming for Mariah when none of Ciara’s albums could even hit 500k in the UK in 20 years. Even all her albums together LMFAO. and lets not forget that Mariah SANGS, Ciara cant even sing. Mariah has sold 8 platinum albums and 2 DIAMOND albums (music box and Daydream) Ciara could never be on that level. Ciara aint on Beyonce and Rihanna’s level either. Mariah has also sold more albums worldwide and has numerous grammys.

  34. anonymous December 25, 2013

    @Iconic Cici but Beautiful went Platinum. Flop party went Gold. looks like CICIFINNABEABABYMAMA.

  35. FutureCIARA December 25, 2013

    I could’ve sworn this was already platinum like EVERYWHERE, guess I was wrong.
    Congrats Mimi

  36. Theman December 26, 2013

    A million units in the UK is more than platinum.. It’s a smaller market idiots..

  37. CARMEN December 26, 2013

    watch Mariah go back into hibernation once christmas is over

  38. theman December 26, 2013

    Some of u fools act like she had an album out, she’s released a few singles here and there, her last one charted higher than most of the flops featured on this site.. “Beautiful” went and is platinum, so fallback with the foolery..

  39. Common Sense December 26, 2013

    The UK has 1/8th of the US population, so ‘All I Want For Christmas is You’ has essentially gone 8x platinum there. The eternal slayage continues.

  40. Emmie December 26, 2013

    Yall b****** trying to shade on MC ?? omg you son a b****** sit your behind down and shut it !! She a living Legend ! She MARIAH CAREY b******..who the f*** you think you are to talk like that about her..yeah 20 years which is a good thing that the song is still so relevant after 20 years…what have yall ever done that you could compare…that gives you the right to talk down on a true Queen ! Shut the f*** up yall think yall sound cool when you talk s*** but if mariah was in your face yall would be drooling..and be scared ass !! Fake ass people here trying to earn some cool by talkin s*** from behind a desk ..getthefuck outta here..yall never be more than a trashtalkingfatassfags

  41. mezzy December 26, 2013

    I don’t know why folks are mentioning Body Party. What does Ciara have to do with this? But anyway, in terms of Beautiful and Body Party, Beautiful sold more but BP made more of an impact. It was played more and arguably the bestR&B song of 2013. Beautiful is cute but forgettable.!

  42. JOHNVIDAL December 26, 2013

    @hivy
    Well, Mariah Carey´s comeback is bigger than any Beyonce album, and we are talking about the 00´s, Beyonce´s reigning period. So keep it cute.

  43. JOHNVIDAL December 26, 2013

    Eternal song!
    *plays Mariah´s and Michael Buble´s performance*

  44. truth December 26, 2013

    I do not know why the Hive has to attack Mariah. They really acting like Beyonce numbers are bigger than Mariahs. They acting like before Beyonce got that award from billboard, Mariah didn’t get the artist of the decade award. They acting like Beyonce has THREE ALBUMS on the BEST SELLING ALBUMS OF ALL TIME list (1 being that christmas album you all think you are draggin). They acting like Beyonce has 14 #1s (on the billboard HOT 100) as a PRODUCER (not including her other #1’s from this list). They acting like Beyonce is known as the biggest selling artist of all time since sound scan. They acting like Beyonce has two DIAMOND certified albums. They acting like Beyonce has a five octave range. They acting like this surprise album was and is BIGGER than The Emancipation of MiMi comeback (the album that produced the song of DECADE declared by BILLBOARD). I could really go on but I think it is clear.
    So what you call her MOORIAH, SHAPED LIKE A BOX, SO WHAT YOU THINK SHE CAN NOT SING TODAY, SO WHAT SHE CANT DANCE… IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT YOU THINK. WHAT IS IN THE HISTORY BOOKS IS JUST THAT. MARIAH CAREY IS A LEGEND WITH TIMELESS HITS and in her prime SLAYED ALL WITH HER VOICE AND MUSIC ALONE. NO GIMMICKS, NO REVLON COMMERCIAL, JUST MUSIC (550,000,000.00 NET W & counting) she has done it all and you may not like the lady but you will deal with her SLAYAGE that she laid upon the music industry.
    what ever hate that follows this, will be read as blah blah blah, IF read at all

  45. jb December 26, 2013

    Errr the single has sold 14mil worldwide. 1mil in the uk alone (a small market) is a feat in itself, especially for a seasonal song.

  46. QUEEN Mariah > U December 30, 2013

  48. Jg January 1, 2014

    Actually. She sold 1 MILLION copies of ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU JUST THIS YEAR IN UK. Total sales for that single in the UK have greatly surpassed 1 million. Shes sold more like 35 million copies of the single over there the past 19 years in UK alone. I guess now shes at 36 million Now
