Mariah Carey’s 24 Year Old Song ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ Breaks Spotify Single Day Record

This Christmas, the holiday pop song was streamed over 10.8 million times on Spotify in just 24 hours.

"All I Want for Christmas Is You" is now No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 after peaking at No. 6 a week ago.

Decades after its initial release, Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is still breaking records. The record was previously held by XXXTentacion's "Sad!", which garnered 10.4m streams on 19 June, the day after he was fatally shot.

"It never ceases to amaze me when this song re-emerges on the Billboard charts every year", Carey told the publication.

The Independent revealed the figure last November as well as reporting it as one of the most streamed Christmas songs of the year.

After the announcement, the singer took to Twitter to express her surprise. It is the 11th best-selling single of all time and had earned $60 million in royalties as of 2017.
