Mariah Carey Shatters Spotify Record With ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’

Published: Tuesday 25th Dec 2018 by Sam

Mariah Carey is no stranger to accolades and on Christmas day she adds another to her lengthy list.

For, while some seasoned divas struggle in the streaming climate, Mimi is thriving with the gift that keeps giving – her colossal classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You.’

Details on its latest milestone below…

Today, the songbird’s iconic cut snatched the title of Spotify’s most played song in 24 hours – clocking up a mega 10.8 million plays.

In doing so, ‘All I Want’ bests the 10.4 million achieved by XXXTentacion’s ‘SAD!’ earlier this year.


It’s mind-blowing to see a song released 24-years ago topping itself year on year. For, beyond this streaming touchdown, the song also reached its highest peak on the Billboard Hot 100.

With a landmark 25th anniversary due next year, we see the song’s wins increasing. 19th #1 anyone?!

    It would be SO memorable to see this becoming her 19th #1… it would be monumental in so many ways. It´s crazy. The trinity is the last memorable thing I´ve seen in mainstream.

    lmao but what about caution? Christmas is over in 6 hours, nobody will care about that stupid song or her anymore by morning lmfaooo😂😂😂

      You’re a bullied teen in real life am I right?

      • Pat December 26, 2018

        You’re most likely correct. For someone to hate a woman whos pushing 50 years old so much is kinda sad. I could see someone from the newer generation, but damn. This woman has an album charting that was released in 1994 lmfao! The All I want for Christmas single is #7 on BB Hot 100 and the Christmas album itself is #14 on the BB 200, I don’t understand the hate at all…

    • ??? December 27, 2018

      lmaooo but you still didn’t answer the question, what about caution? lmfaooooo 😂 😂😂 😂😂 😂

      • Dee December 28, 2018

        Caution did well for an artist of her age and that has been in the game for almost 30 years. She has nothing to prove anymore sweetie. My guess is that you’re a young artist Stan like Ariana. When you grow up you’ll see that your fav is not on the top forever boo, its all a cycle. Will she be still be mumbling and rocking her ponytail at 50 we’ll see. BTW, you didn’t answer MY question at being a bullied teen. I’ll take that as a yes. Don’t worry honey, it gets better.

    This song becomes a global hit every holiday season, incredible. Critics always said Mariah didn’t have a “signature song” like I Will Always Love You or My Heart Will Go On, boy were they wrong. This song IS her signature classic. And unlike the other legendary vocal diva’s, she solely wrote the lyrics, co-composed the music (w/ Walter) & co-produced the song (w/ Walter). Amazing.

    And she owns the masters and publishing rights for the song. That’s why Walter is kinda salty, cause he wants Mariah to give the green-light for this song to become commercialized by many companies. But she won’t allow them to. Proves she’s not really desperate for money after-all. She could easily score a multi-million dollar deal by allowing this song to be used by multiple companies.

    Congrats Mimi (and Walter). It’s a holiday staple now, and will be reaching global sales of 20 million pretty soon. 🙂

      I always felt they treated her unfairly in that aspect as “ Hero “ could’ve very well been a big track signature to a movie soundtrack as did Whitney’s and Celine.

      • I HATE WHYYYTE n Blaccck BITCHEZZ BOTH NOT SHT December 26, 2018

        Yup and Whitney knew the bodyguard movie and song was waaay bigger than selfish Mimi

        She still have not the wind like Whitney

    • Paulo December 26, 2018

      I’m no lamb but I always thought My All and her rendition of Against All Odds were those classics. In addition to Heartbreaker being her staple Pop song but maybe that’s cause I’m a late 80s baby
