While celebrating its 25th anniversary, everyone’s favorite holiday classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey, broke three new Guinness World Records according to Hollywood Reporter. During her Christmas show at the Colosseum in Las Vegas, the Guinness World Records organization honored the music legend for her achievements.
With her holiday tune, Mariah broke the record for highest-charting holiday (Christmas/New Year) song on the Hot 100 by a solo artist. The record has also become the most streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours, garnering over 10.8 million streams last December, and has spent the most weeks in the UK singles Top 10 chart for a Christmas song. All of Mariah’s records will be featured in the Guinness World Records 2020 Edition book.
Taking to Instagram to share her accomplishments with fans and supporters, Mariah states, “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!”
After performing in Las Vegas through November 30 for her 2019 “All I Want For Christmas Is You” tour, Mariah will make stops at Atlantic City, Washington D.C., Boston, New York and other East Coast cities to perform the timeless record and more. Congratulations to Mariah on her record-breaking achievements as her Christmas smash has become a staple of the holiday season.
