Mariah Carey has unwrapped yet another win with ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You.’
And this time it’s in the UK.
For, the holiday classic has hit the top spot for the first time since its release – 26 years ago.
Full story below…
‘All I Want’ reigns on the latest iteration of the Official UK Singles Chart – crowning a colossal run for the much loved track.
It was powered by 10.8 million streams over the course of the current tracking week; a sum which serves as the the most streams in a single week by any song in 2020 thus far far.
Since its 1994 release, ‘All I Want’ has amassed 1.24 million pure sales, rendering it the UK’s 84th best-selling song in UK chart history
What more, it lands in pole position on its 70th week in the Top 40. As such, in the process, it sets a new chart record. For, no other song in UK chart history has spent more weeks in the Top 40 before #1.
Speaking on the historic win, Mimi said:
“Happy Christmas UK!! We finally made it!!! We are keeping the Christmas spirit alive together despite how dismal the year’s been. Love you always! ♥️ Joy to the world 🌎😇🎄!!!!”
She went on to tweet:
The chart win comes on the heels of ‘All I Want’ becoming Carey’s 19th Billboard #1 on its 25 anniversary last year.
In another mind-blowing stat, the track has returned to the Official UK Singles Chart every December since 2007 and, over the last three years, has consistently matched its 1994 peak of #2.
Today saw that change…at long last!
