Mariah Carey is still the “Queen” of Christmas music

The RnB pop legend’s 1994 song, All I Want for Christmas is You is one of the ten most popular songs in the US, this week.

Mariah Carey’s All I want for Christmas is You has proven once again to be one of the most popular Christmas songs in recent times, as it reached number seven on the Billboard top 100.

The song has been a popular Christmas anthem ever since it was released in November 1994, 24 years ago. All I want for Christmas is You is one of three singles from Carey’s fourth studio album Merry Christmas. One fan commented with praise on a video of O’ Holy Night, another song from the same album, calling Carey “the Queen of Christmas.”

The music legend was at the peak of her new career when she released this album and was told that Christmas albums were for older, less relevant musicians. Carey pursued the project in any case citing her strong Christian faith. The album increased her fame and popularity globally and amongst other circles of people who were never fans of the star.
