During the holiday season, listening to Christmas music is usually a must. Many people have some classic favorites each year, but this year one song has made a comeback. After 25 years since its release, Mariah Carey’s, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” became a number one single.
The song was released in 1994 and Billboard announced that the song hit the top of the Hot 100 chart for the first time since it came out. Carey has spent a “record-extending” 80 weeks total at the top of Hot 100 charts throughout her career. Christmas definitely came early for the celebrity as the song has never been at the very top of the multigenre chart before, but has been doing so for 38 weeks now.
Many people are familiar with the song and can’t help but sing along to the catchy tune each holiday season. It is always great to have a classic song make its way back up to the top, especially right in time for Christmas.
