Mariah Carey’s classic festive song ‘All I Want For Christmas is You’ has finally topped the US charts – 25 years after it was first released.
When the hit song made its debut in 1994 it was as an EP and not a single, meaning it wasn’t allowed to compete in Billboard’s Hot 100.
Rule changes saw the song first enter the chart in 2000 and in recent years it has edged closer to the top spot.
“We did it,” Carey tweeted, with a string of emojis to convey happy tears.
She celebrated the 25th anniversary of the song – damn I feel old as I remember the original release – by turning on the lights of the Empire State Building on Tuesday (December 17) in New York City.
In classic Mimi style she was giving us pure diva wearing an Alexandre Vauthier gown.
Yes, this has champagne reception, New York premiere or awards ceremony written all over it, but knowing Mariah, and having watched her on MTV Cribs, it wouldn’t surprise me if this embellished dress with a dangerously low neckline was something she wore around the house.
All in a days’ work for Mimi. Jewels (a Wempe ruby and diamond necklace) and all.
