Mariah Carey’s perennial holiday hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which is currently No. 1 on the Billboard Holiday 100 songs chart again 24 years after she debuted it in 1994, has undoubtedly solidified Mariah as the Queen of Christmas.
The five-time Grammy winner, a prolific and underrated songwriter for nearly three decades, co-wrote this catchy love song and over the years has capitalized on its commercial longevity by releasing a children’s book and animated film both of the same name as well as taking her holiday music on tour globally.
The Christmas classic, which has reportedly earned Mariah more than $60 million in royalties since its mid-90s release, is showing no signs of slowing down either. So push play and let’s spread some holiday cheer by celebrating the many recent milestones “AIWFCIY” has achieved during just the 2010s.
