Mariah Carey, the undisputed Queen of Christmas, has once again proven her festive reign by breaking the all-time record for most Spotify streams in a single day on Christmas Eve. Her iconic holiday anthem, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” achieved a staggering 23,701,697 streams in 2023, surpassing her own record set last year at 21,273,357 streams.
This year, Mariah engaged in a friendly “Queen of Christmas” battle with Brenda Lee, briefly relinquishing the number 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 for one week during the lead-up to Christmas. In a gracious display of sportsmanship, Mariah sent flowers and a congratulatory note to Brenda Lee. However, the Queen reclaimed her throne the following week.
Mariah’s enduring holiday classic continues to captivate audiences, becoming an integral part of the festive season. The streaming record on Spotify reinforces the timeless appeal and popularity of “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” solidifying Mariah Carey’s status as the ultimate holiday music icon.
