Why Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas could be the best song ever
Every year, every holiday season it seems that Mariah Carey always makes a appearance with her Christmas song “All I Want for Christmas Is You”. Which is a rare Christmas song that plays on various radio formats and could be the best Christmas song ever cause according to Billboard it has just hit #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 — the highest it’s ranked since it was first released in 1994. This song has earned Mariah over 60 million over its span.
According to Billboard:
The song only hit the top 10 for the first time last year. If it sounds unbelievable, well, blame Billboard chart rules. In 1994, when “All I Want for Christmas Is You” first came out, it wasn’t commercially available as a single, and Billboard‘s rules back then prohibited it from charting on the Hot 100. When those rules changed in 1998, the song first charted in 2000, but only at #83.
So since 2012, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has charted. In 2016, the song climbed to #11, and last year, it finally broke into the top 10, reaching #9, mostly due to streaming. Check out the video below.
