Mariah Carey isn’t finished re-writing history.
Because she’s just snatched another colossal record, thanks to her 19th #1 ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You.’
Full story below…
In extending its reign atop of the Billboard Hot 100 for a third week (the Jan 4th 2020 edition of the tally), the holiday classic has earned Mimi the coveted honor of being the only artist in the charts history to have scored #1 singles in four separate decades.
For Carey, those decades are the 90s, 00s, 10s, and now the 20s.
So how did she do it?
In the tracking week that encompassed Christmas, ‘All I Want’ amassed gargantuan US streams of 72.2 million. With Christmas Eve seeing the song break the record for most streams amassed in a single day (12 million).
Within the same period, its total downloads were 17,000 and its all-format radio play soared to an impressive 30.9 million.
Suffice to say, it adds an iconic new chapter to Carey’s already legendary career. And, in many ways, sets up the most fertile of foundations for her new music to come.
