Mariah Carey is the unrivalled Queen of Christmas and is set to mark a major milestone this holidays. For, it’ll be 25 years since she released her classic ‘Merry Christmas’ album – which houses colossal smash ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You.’
To honor the occasion, Mimi just announced that she’ll be unwrapping the ‘Merry Christmas Deluxe 25th Anniversary Edition.’
Set for release on November 1st, the project will be comprised of two-discs, fusing tracks from the original LP with select cuts from the 2010 follow-up ‘Merry Christmas II You’ and more.
Speaking on the release, Carey gushed:
Lambily! ❤️💚 MERRY CHRISTMAS is turning 25 and I’m celebrating by releasing a very special 2 CD Deluxe Anniversary Edition on November 1st featuring, for the first time ever, my St. John The Divine performance and more! 🎄 Pre-order now for early access to tickets to my US tour.
She paired this with a very Mimi-like announcement vid:

What’s more, with ‘All I Want’ reaching a new peak of #3 last year, this certainly assists its charge towards the top spot (note the multiple versions featured? A smart play in today’s streaming claimte).
Like, how awesome would that be: Mimi securing her 19th #1 on the song/album’s 25th anniversary? It’d be a triumph on many a front!
We’re rooting for her! Are you?
