Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” tops Billboard Hot 100 for 10 weeks
Mariah Carey is undeniably the Queen of Christmas as her timeless record, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has reached a new milestone, as it tops the Billboard Hot 100 for a 10th week.
This makes her the third artiste and first woman with three songs to have peaked for double-digit weeks. Between 1995 and 1996, “One Sweet Day,” her duet with Boyz II Men, sat at No. 1 for 16 weeks and a decade later, “We Belong Together” reigned for 14 weeks.
The Philly quartet and Drake are the only other artists to have achieved such a triumphant victory.
Coincidentally, “One Sweet Day” also held the record for longest reign on the Hot 100 for over two decades until Lil Nas X’s remix of “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus took over in 2019. The single soared to No. 1 and remained there for 19 weeks.
