This holiday season, no one can escape it. Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas can be heard everywhere: in stores, on the street and especially on the radio. This hit written in the 90's keeps on making news, chaining records. After being number 1 in 2019, this track has just passed the billion streaming mark.
It was the diva who announced the news on Instagram by posting a photo of herself dressed as Mother Noel. I'm freaking out. This is an amazing number, she captioned. The singer also reiterated her gratitude to her fans. In addition, the icing on the cake, Mariah Carey received a prize to immortalize this record. Diamonds are a girl's best friend, she continued.
According to The Economist, All I Want For Christmas earned the star over $60 million between 1994 and 2016. This is equivalent to an average of $ 2.6 million per year. Beside this small pactole, we must add the derivative products, his concerts, his special offers, his book, his animated film, etc...But nothing will take away the pleasure of listening to it…
