Can you believe that MC’s iconic Christmas bop, “All I Want For Christmas is You” has hit #1 on the Billboard Charts AGAIN… 26 years after it was released?!

The year was 1994 and the sweet, sweet fantasy that is Mariah Carey released a very festive Holiday album, simply entitled ‘Merry Christmas’.

It spawned three well received singles but the now eternal Christmas classic, All I Want For Christmas Is You hit the festive feels… hard… for many Christmas lovers around the world!

Despite all the popularity and love for this piece of Christmas iconic-ness, Mimi’s festive offering never attained the #1 slot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (in the U.S.) until last year – some 25 years later.

Cut to 26 years later and now, just in time for the most wonderful time of the year, Billboard recently announced that All I Want For Christmas has topped the Hot 100 charts for the second time ever!

Queen Mimi has shared her joy across her social media accounts, simply writing “’I don’t want a lot for Christmas…’ just wishing for a bit more JOY and some holiday spirit for all, especially this year.”

The QUEEN of Christmas continues her reign!
