Carey is known as the queen of Christmas thanks to her hit song “All I Want for Christmas” which was first released in 1994. With the popularization of music streaming services, the song began charting and made an appearance in the top 10 in December 2017, according to Billboard.
In 2018, “All I Want for Christmas” made its way into the top 5 and a year later reigned the chart, a feat Carey has managed for four consecutive years. She spent three weeks on top in 2019, two weeks in 2020 and three weeks in 2021.
“All I Want for Christmas” also holds the record as the holiday song that’s spent the most time at No. 1 with nine weeks, as of this week. “The Chipmunk Song,” which was released in 1958, is the only other Christmas tune that comes close with four weeks at the top of the charts.
Carey reached the top of the charts last year and ended Taylor Swift’s reign at the No. 1 spot who had a six-week streak with “Anti-Hero.”
