Mariah Carey’s ‘Christmas’ Surges in Sales & Streaming / Eyes Next Week’s Hot 100 #1 Spot

Published: Wednesday 11th Dec 2019 by Rashad

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:

“For the second holiday season in a row, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart — even with Christmas still two weeks away.

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.

      • BravoHunk December 12, 2019

        It wasn’t stupid. Its peak has been #3 so far.

  4. Mira December 11, 2019

    Not sure why this is post-worthy, it’s nothing new – this song has re-entered the charts every year at christmas pretty much since it’s release 2 decades ago.

    • Ycoll December 11, 2019

      Thats where you wrong. It only started charting when billboard rules changed and only made the top 5 for the first time last year

      • Kurtz December 11, 2019

        Exactly and it’s news worthy because if she gets her 19th number one she will be behind the Beatles only so breaks a record and it’s with a Christmas song that’s 25 years old
        So it’s a big deal

      • High Price December 11, 2019

        @Ycoll and @Kurtz! Y’all BETTER Educate these fools!

  5. Rashad December 11, 2019

    Diva supreme. This would be the most deserving song to go to #1 this entire year

    • Qhasi December 12, 2019

      Yasssss. She should have earned this no. 1 years ago. Same with Butterfly

      Still playing in MANY radios and cars on a routine basis. My favorite song on the album is 8th Grade! Mariah performed it live at the tour and it even charted.

      Try again, boo!
