Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" just hit Billboard's "Hot 100" list for three consecutive weeks, making her the first artist in history to rule the charts in four decades.


"All I Want For Christmas Is You" is everybody's Christmas anthem, regardless of where they are in the world. This has been the case since the song was first released in the 1990s, and it remained that way in the 2000s, 2010s, and now, the 2020s.

After leading the charts this Christmas season, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" has broken records around the world by being the first song to rule in different decades. This makes Mariah Carey the first artist in history to achieve such a feat.

The song is Carey's 19th No. 1 on the list after earning 14 in the 1990s, and another 4 in the 2000s.




This year, Mariah Carey was hard at work to make sure "All I Want For Christmas" remained at the top of the charts, as she released a mini-documentary entitled "Mariah Carey Is Christmas." It ultimately boosted the song to the top of the charts for three consecutive weeks.


The song is Carey's 19th No.1 on the list after earning 14 in the 1990s and another 4 in the 2000s.

As for breaking a record, the singer-songwriter surpassed the likes of Stevie Wonder, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Usher, who had songs at the top of the list for three decades each.



As for what's keeping "All I Want For Christmas Is You" in everyone's playlist, the singer thinks it's because her fans grew up with the song, and would like to keep that tradition alive.

"I feel like people have grown up with the song and it’s become a part of people's lives in terms of the way they celebrate the holidays. That makes me feel really proud as someone that loves Christmas so much."

Congratulations, Mariah!
