Then, it was the initial Xmas No. 1 in 60 many years, given that “The Chipmunk Tune,” and it held on to come to be the very first No. 1 of the 2020s — a considerable feat for a music that arrived out in 1994.

In its fourth 7 days at No. 1, “All I Want for Christmas” also ties “The Chipmunk Song” for the longest chart-topping operate for a holiday getaway song. The move also arrives as Carey’s Xmas album, Merry Xmas, bounces again to No. 10 on the Billboard 200.

Carey apart, it is a major week all all around for holiday getaway audio on the charts, with five complete Xmas music in the major ten. It is mostly the normal suspects, with Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ All around the Xmas Tree” at No. 3, Bobby Helms’s “Jingle Bell Rock” at No. 5, and Andy Williams’s “It’s the Most Amazing Time of the Year” at No. 6. But rounding out the team is José Feliciano’s “Feliz Navidad” at No. 10, the first prime-ten visual appearance for the tune, 50 a long time right after its launch. Just love all this festivity ahead of Taylor Swift swoops into the charts following 7 days.
