Well surprise, SURPRISE!! Mariah Carey has landed the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 for her famous holiday hit, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” This is the first time the 25-year-old song has hit No. 1. The song’s previous record was No. 3 on the chart.

Now a holiday classic, the song was first released in 1994 on Carey’s “Merry Christmas” album. She was only 24 when she recorded it. “All I Want for Christmas” has been featured in “Love Actually” and is used as Carey’s official holiday kick-off anthem every year. Carey has reportedly earned more than $60 million in royalties from the song, and since 2014, she has performed a concert in honor of the classic song annually. Amazon is debuting a mini-documentary about the history of the song, called “Mariah Carey is Christmas.”
