After 25 Years, 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' Is Finally No.1 On The Charts
Mariah Carey -- the undisputed Queen of Christmas -- has just claimed her 19th No.1 hit on the Billboard charts.
Carey's festive bop "All I Want For Christmas Is You" only made it to No.6 when it was first released in 1994 but has made regular chart appearances in the last quarter of a century.
The pop icon thanked her fanbase -- known as Lambs -- for helping the tune reach over 45 million plays on streaming services and buying 27,000 copies of the single, writing "we did it" on Twitter.
The record means Carey has extended her lead as the solo artist with the most chart-topping hits, jumping further ahead of next-in-line, Rihanna, who has 14 No.1s to her name.
Even more importantly, it's the first time a Christmas tune has made it to No.1 on the Billboard charts since 1959 -- when "The Chipmunk Song" was all the rage.
Understandably, Mariah's Lambs are absolutely losing it over the news.
We're going to pay tribute to the Queen of Christmas and celebrate the good news by going to a local shopping centre and waiting exactly two minutes to hear it blaring from the speakers.
