‘Tis the season to be jolly, and we all know what that means. It’s time to blast Mariah Carey and wake up our neighbors from all the holiday cheer.
According to the Daily Mail, Carey makes a couple hundred thousand in royalties from her hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” but she had yet to land a spot in Billboard’s Hot 100—until now.
“All I Want for Christmas Is You” has reached No. 9 on Billboard’s Hot 100, 23 years after its release. Billboard shared that the song wasn’t a “commercially available single” when it was released back in 1994 and was, therefore, ineligible.
The song also inspired an animated film, which Carey released last month, that “tells the story of young Mariah, who wants nothing more for Christmas than a puppy.” Watch the trailer for the movie below.
