Mariah Carey’s 1994 ‘All I want for Christmas Is You’ hit song has set a new Billboard record after hitting the number one spot on the Hot 100 for the third time.
The festive pop song has always hit the charts every year but this time around it hit the top spot for the third time and has become the first song in the history of the chart to have three separate runs in the top spot.
Mariah shared her excitement via twitter. She wrote, “yes! I can’t even know what to say. The kids just woke me up with confetti, [Bryan] Tanaka [boyfriend] brought in two mimosas -one for me, one for him.
“This type of news -Its never like ‘Oh my God, I’m so bored of this new’- to have another Billboard Hot 100 (number one) with this song that means so much to me- I can’t even, I literally don’t know what to say.”
The 52-year-old pop star also thanked her fans around the world for the support.
“I’m just so thankful. I really am thankful- especially the Lambily because you guys never ever gave up on me, with this song especially.
“I think people supported it through good times, bad times, whatever I love you. Merry Christmas. Cheers you guys I cannot thank you enough,” she said.
