Somehow one of the most popular Christmas songs from the past three decades has never made it to the top of the Billboard Hot 100… until today. That’s right: 25 years after its release, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” a.k.a. the most ubiquitous song on the radio between November 1 and December 25, has reached No. 1.
Carey tweeted her excitement about the achievement: “We did it.”

The track was released on her 1994 album, Merry Christmas, and has since become a holiday classic. Artists like Ariana Grande and Fifth Harmony are among those who have covered the Christmas banger. Unsurprisingly, the track has topped the Holiday 100 chart for the past 38 weeks in a row.
This makes Carey the artist with the second-highest number of Billboard No. 1 hits (19), following the Beatles at 20.
