Mariah Carey’s holiday favorite “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has made history becoming the first song to return to No. 1 for the third year consecutively.
According to Billboard, during the week of December 10 through the 16, the song saw an increase of 7% through both radio impressions and downloads. The song also extends Mariah’s record for the most weeks at No. 1 to 85 weeks, where she is followed by both the Beetles and Rihanna.
“All I Want for Christmas” was originally released in 1994 as part of a Christmas album Carey did and since has become what some would call a holiday staple. The song was the first holiday track to be certified diamond and topped the Billboard Hot 100 charts back in 2019 of the first time ever.
