Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas’ Rises To New Hot 100 Peak

Published: Monday 17th Dec 2018 by Rashad

Just a week after making headlines for hitting a new Hot 100 peak 24 years after its release (click here to read more), Mariah Carey‘s ‘All I Want For Christmas’ rises again on the tally (reaching its highest rung ever).

The historic yuletide tune – which has earned Mimi a whopping $60 million in royalties to date (as we reported here) – stunned when it rose to #7 on the Hot 100.  The move spurred her fans, affectionately called #Lambs, to action to stream the tune with hopes of having it not only unseat Ariana Grande‘s megahit, ‘thank u, next,’ from the top of charts, but also earn the 5-octave songbird her 19th #1.

Their efforts may have not reached the ultimate goal, but they are certainly one step closer to doing so.  Details inside:

Billboard reports:

Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” becomes the highest-charting yuletide hit in 60 years on the Billboard Hot 100, as it rises from No. 7 to No. 6 (on the chart dated Dec. 22).   

Carey’s carol is the top-charting song of the season on the Hot 100 since “The Chipmunk Song,” by David Seville and The Chipmunks, which remains the only such single to have hit No. 1, for four weeks beginning Dec. 22, 1958 (just after the chart’s inception that Aug. 4).

    But I thought she was irrelevant and a flop?

      Exactly, I said it numerous times if Mariah wanted to retire today this SONG alone and album will forever carry her legacy especially when God forbid her time is done here on this side ???

      lmaoooo she IS an irrelevant flop, where is caution at on the charts? lmfaooooo

      • Lmfao_Hoe December 17, 2018

        Caution is still hit regardless what you say, Critics loved it and has the highest rating at that. Wait til Mariah starts performing, promote, video singles radio live performances when she tours in support

    Mariahs had a really good few months on the charts , from minor chart moves with caution , to Glitter and Christmas doing better than ever. And 28 years into her career that is amazing .. who was out in 1990 who’s made chart moves like Mariah this year?

      Nobody. There´s Mariah there´s Celine and very little more among people who were on the charts back then and are now when they release. 99% have disappeared and died due to fame foolisness.
