Pop diva Mariah Carey has had a protracted listing of hits over time, however her basic vacation track has helped her make historical past as the primary artist to prime the Billboard charts in 4 separate many years.
“All I Want For Christmas Is You” is primary on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week dated January 4, 2020, based mostly on gross sales, radio airplay and streaming knowledge — its third week atop the rankings.
That means Carey has had a primary single within the Nineties, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s.

The bubbly, ubiquitous vacation tune was first launched in 1994 and gained new fame after its inclusion on the soundtrack for the 2003 movie “Love, Actually.”
But it solely topped the charts for the primary time in late 2019, because of a change in Billboard’s guidelines as to what might be included on the highest songs listing.
Carey dropped a brand new video for it — which counts in direction of Hot 100 placement — and launched the track as a stand-alone CD single for the primary time.
It is her nineteenth primary hit, in accordance with Billboard, placing her only one track behind The Beatles’ general document of 20 prime songs.
The singer — who is not going to affirm whether or not her age is 49 or 50 as a result of she says “time is not something I acknowledge” — was low-key about her history-making achievement.
“Yaaaaaaaaay!!! WE. DID. IT,” Carey wrote on Twitter, with a stream of champagne and occasion emojis.
“But… what’s a decade?”
