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:
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).
