“All I Want for Christmas Is You” is the gift that keeps on giving.
Now that her holiday hit has topped the domestic chart for a third consecutive week, Mariah Carey is the first artist to have a No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 in four separate decades.
That’s right! Carey has ranked atop the Hot 100 in the ’90s, ’00s, ’10s & ‘20s, thanks to the song, which was originally released in 1994, and has finally hit No. 1 this holiday season.
“All I Want for Christmas Is You” is Carey’s 19th No. 1, which also officially earns her the title of most No. 1 singles for a solo artist in history.
Carey had the best response to becoming the first artist to rule the Billboard Hot 100 in four decades, writing on Twitter, “Yaaaaaaaaay!!! WE. DID. IT,” followed by a bunch of celebration emojis and then asked “But…. what’s a decade?”
