Mariah Carey has just proven herself to be the undisputed Queen of Christmas.

“All I Want For Christmas Is You,” her holiday anthem, has reclaimed the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.

The song spent nine weeks at the top of the chart, making history by becoming the first single to do so in four consecutive district runs, according to the outlet.

Mariah responded to the enormous achievement with a tweet that included 12 party hat emojis and the words “YAYYY!!!”

The mother of two also shared a photo of herself posing joyfully with her hands in the air on a large dining room table.

The “Through the Rain” singer said:

“Such an amazing surprise and an early Christmas gift!!!”

She captioned it with a Christmas tree, a heart, a snowflake, a present, a purple heart, a butterfly, and a slew of other happier emojis.

She went on to thank her supporters.

Christmas music has become more popular on streaming platforms in recent years, with Mariah Carey’s song “All I Want For Christmas Is You” first appearing in her 1994 album “Merry Christmas.”

It debuted in the Top 100’s Top 10 in December 2017, before moving up to the Top 5 during the 2018 holiday season.

Following that, it topped the charts for three weeks in 2019, two weeks in 2020, and three weeks in 2021.

Mariah Carey’s popular Christmas song continues to earn her enormous sums of money thanks to licensing and commercial arrangements.

She would undoubtedly perform on stage throughout the holiday season, attracting large crowds.

The Economist investigated Mariah Carey’s earnings from her popular song and discovered that she earned approximately $2.5 million per year.

By 2016, she had earned $60 million.

In a 2021 TMZ article, the singer of “Obsessed” reportedly broke down the earnings from her ultimate Christmas song.

Spotify artists earn between .003 and.004 cents per stream.

However, over a billion people have listened to Mariah’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” on Spotify, which means she earns between $3.3 million and $4.3 million from Spotify listens alone.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, she earns between $2 million and $4 million in royalties from the hit song.

As a result, Mariah Carey is one of the top 15 best-selling musicians of all time, with a net worth of $340 million.
