Mariah Carey’s 1994 holiday classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is still a must-have, a side effect of it being the most popular Christmas song since “O Tannenbaum” set the world on fire in the 1800s, but it has apparently been slightly more essential this year—at least according to the Billboard graphics.

As of this week, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” reached number one on the Top 100 list for the third time, making it the first time a song has reached the top of. Billboard‘s graphics in three separate passages. In other words, the song didn’t go up to number one, then dropped to number two, then came back to number one. It started outside the 100 and then grew to number one thrice.

the Billboard The website has more information on the details of this record and the different rules surrounding it, and it also explains that the previous record was set by “The Twist” by Chubby Checker, which should give you an idea. of the difficulty of this process. He reached number one in 1960, then again in 1962, and never again after that (he should really try to pass “The Twist” to whoever offers TikTok dances).

“All I want for Christmas is you,” meanwhile reached Hot 100 for the first time in 2017, then hit number one in 2019, 2020 and now 2021. It’s clear that this isn’t slowing down at all, so it’s probably going to break this album next year and then the year after… unless Mariah Carey can get people to make “All I Want For Christmas Is You” a song. all year. Then it can just stay on the charts and play on the radio and on store speakers forever!
