Mariah Carey Scores Historic 19th Hot 100 #1 With ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’

Published: Monday 16th Dec 2019 by Sam

Mariah Carey has done it!

25 years after the release of ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You,’ Billboard has unwrapped confirmation that the holiday classic has become the diva’s historic 19th #1 single.

Full story below…

Recent years have seen the song scale to new heights thanks to seismic sales and streams, with 2018 bringing a new peak of #3. A position the track returned to this week.

Now, this week, it’s jumped two spots to #1 fuelled by 45.6 million streams, 27,000 downloads, and a multi-format radio audience of 34.4 million.

A phenomenal feat, ‘All I Want’s crowning moment sees Carey net her first Hot 100 chart-topper since 2008’s ‘Touch My Body.’

Check Out These Impressive Mariah x ‘All I Want’ Stats:

* First solo artist to have 19 #1 singles on the Hot 100.

* First holiday single by a recording artist to go to #1.

* Unprecedented Feat: one of the first songs in history to have its first run at #1 25 years after its release.

* Carey joins elite list of artists to have landed #1s in three separate decades. On said tally are the likes of  Michael Jackson, Madonna, Britney Spears, and Janet Jackson.

* At 49 years young, Mimi has the distinct honor of being the oldest female this century to score a #1 single. Among solo female acts, the all-time record is currently held by Cher, who topped the tally with comeback bop ‘Believe’ in 1999 (at 52 years old).

* ‘All I Want’s chart-topping success means the songbird has written 18 of her 19 #1s.

A huge and heartfelt congratulations to Mariah! Christmas has indeed come early.

This is the definition of deserved and adds to legacy that is one of the most legendary in music history.

Congrats also to Team MC, who’ve mounted a highly impressive campaign for the 25th anniversary of the song and its parent album ‘Merry Christmas.’

    What a time to be alive. This makes my heart so happy

    • Fancy BISH December 16, 2019

      Yes, this is like Christmas morning ? This is so amazing! ? The same year that Lil Nas X passed the record for One Sweet Day with NINETEEN weeks, Mariah scores her NINETEENTH #1 with a song from NINETEEN NINETY FOUR! ? God is good, ALL THE TIME ? I think it’s time to give the single treatment to Melt Away if it can be arranged and have a post Christmas/New Years vibe to the video! Mariah could be taking down her tree and lights getting ready for the New Year! The last scene of the video could be her performing in Times Square with all real life couples, gay and straight, from all walks of life! Get that 20th #1, Mimi lol?? God bless you, beautiful Mariah! You sing like an ANGEL ? ❤️

      • Oh plz December 16, 2019

        Beautifully said, Fancy! ❤️???

    This is a table for successful girls who can never perform at McDonald’s
    This is a table for successful girls who dont recycle stage outfits.

    Bad bìtches link up.

    A number 1 song which is difficult to get not everybody has that to their credit

    Pls if faves is not on this list pls dont speak to me

    I ain’t seeing that McDonald’s performer on this list. after all the hype and co-sign from beyonce and Rihanna.

    2020 will be so painful for this McDonald’s performer who cant afford fresh stage outfits.

    • Aurora December 16, 2019

      Gaga and Selena, both queens.

  25. Happy n Rich December 16, 2019

    19s for ’19. Old Town Road held #1 for a record-breaking 19 weeks, and All I Want for Christmas is You is now Mariah Carey’s 19th #1 hit . . . all in 2019. The chart purist and historian in me is loving this.
