Mariah Carey has officially become the first artist to rule the Billboard chart in four decades, and the singer has truly celebrated in style.
After Billboard announced that All I Want For Christmas would be celebrating a third week at number one – the first one of 2020 – it confirmed that she was the first artist to have a hit song on the chart across the past four decades.
They posted: ‘@MariahCarey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is officially No. 1 on the #Hot100 for a third week.
‘As this is the first chart of the 2020s, she becomes the first artist in history to rule the chart in four separate decades: 1990s, 2000s, 2010s & 2020s.’
Mariah responded to the tweet, saying: ‘Yaaaaaaaaay!!! WE. DID. IT. But…. what’s a decade?’
She then shared her celebrations with fans, posting a video of her and her team toasting to the news with flutes of champagne outside her private jet.
Because, how else would you imagine Mariah celebrating pretty much anything?
She captioned the video: ‘Celebrating on the move!’ as she shared a video of her friends whooping in the snowy landscape.
All I Want For Christmas was first released in 1994, becoming her 19th number one song on the Billboard chart.
She told Billboard about the 25th anniversary of the song: ‘We definitely wanted to kick it into high gear this year with the song to celebrate the 25th anniversary, but I definitely didn’t expect it to hit No. 1 two weeks before Christmas.
