We can count on Mariah Carey to return atop the Billboard Hot 100 as soon as the holiday season arrives and she did it once again this year. She returned to No. 1 with “All I Want For Christmas” for the 11th time, logging her record-extending 90th time atop the Billboard Hot 100.
“All I Want For Christmas” topped the Hot 100 for the first time in 2019, 25 years after its original release. We’ve seen it return to No. 1 time and time again every year since just in time for Christmas, setting several major records in its wake.
“All I Want for Christmas Is You” returned to no. 1 for the third time this holiday season, logging its 11th week atop the chart. By doing so, it also extended Carey’s record for most weeks an artist spent atop the Hot 100 with 90 – and she couldn’t be happier about it!
“I can’t even handle this news.. I’m jumping up and down in the snow..! meanwhile Cha Cha is swimming around and Mutley is howling like a kid running around in circles feeling our energy,” Carey wrote on Instagram.
“All I Want For Christmas” also set a new record for the longest span atop the Hot 100 to over three years and a week, after it topped the chart on 11 separate occasions between December 21, 2019, and December 31, 2022.
