Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas” Sets 3 World Records
In 1994, Mariah Carey dropped the hit song, All I Want For Christmas Is You. Never did she imagine that 25 years later, the hit song will set three Guinness World Records.
The Guinness World Records organization announced on its website on Monday that the pop diva has set three world records with her Christmas classic.
The song broke the record for the highest-charting holiday (Christmas/New Year) song on the Billboard U.S. Hot 100 by a solo artist.
The song also set the bar for most-streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours by a female artist, with 10,819,009 streams last December, as well as the record for most weeks in the U.K. singles Top 10 chart for a Christmas song at 20 weeks.
On Saturday, Carey was presented copies of her pages from the “Guinness World Records 2020 Edition,” along with her record title certificate, by an official adjudicator from the organization.
Guinness World Records’ Michael Empric gave Carey the documents onstage during her show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
She took to her Instagram page to announce this feat. She wrote:
“Thank you so much Guinness World Records for honoring me with three records in the 2020 book! “Michael from @guinnessworldrecords presented me with a certificate on stage, so naturally, I asked him to join us for the #AllIWantForChristmasIsYou finale!”
