All Mariah Carey fans (affectionately called #Lambs) want for Christmas is to see the diva atop next week’s Billboard Hot 100, a feat that may very well be on its to being accomplished.
After this week kicked off with news her enduring holiday classic, ‘All I Want For Christmas,’ had re-peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 25 years after its debut (click here to read more), #Lambs leaped into action with “streaming parties” to help her unseat the current chart champion, The Weeknd.
According to the Music Bible, their efforts may be just the push needed to get her to the top spot for the 19th time in her career. Details inside:
The holiday standard vaults 11-1 on the Dec. 14-dated list with 35.1 million U.S. streams earned in the week ending Dec. 5, according to Nielsen Music. Its ascent to No. 1 comes via a 48% boost in streams in the tracking week ending Dec. 5. The previous week, the song had increased its streams by 35%.
…this is the earliest the song has ever reached No. 1 on Streaming Songs and the first time a holiday title has done so before the season is actually over.” [source]
In addition to being the most streamed song in America (as of time reported), the song’s broken into the top 10 on a number of real-time sales charts including iTunes, Apple Music, and Amazon.
Its combined performance on radio, sales, and streaming could spell a leap to #1 on next week’s Hot 100. If accomplished, she would not only earn a historic 19th chart-topper, but she would also be the first recording artist to hit the summit’s perch with a holiday single.
