After being a Christmas favourite for 25 years, Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ is officially No.1 on the Billboard charts!

 

 

To celebrate this amazing accomplishment, Mariah released a brand new music video.  In a fan Q&A, Mariah explains, “We wanted to make a modern classic.  It’s kind of the opposite of the original video… This is more of a production,” and it was directed by Joseph Kahn.  As Rolling Stone notes, “‘All I Want for Christmas Is You” has steadily turned into one of the most streamed Christmas songs during the month of December each year. This year, it arrived as early as November 1st on Rolling Stone’s Top 100 Songs chart and nabbed the Number One spot during the week of December 12th with a total of over 25 million streams.”
