The pop icon reflects on the 1994 classic reaching the region for the first time.
As previously reported, Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" ascends to the Billboard Hot 100's top 10 for the first time. The song dashes from No. 11 to No. 9 on the chart dated Dec. 30, as the modern holiday classic reaches the Hot 100's top 10 at last, over 23 years after its 1994 release.
"This is such an amazing Christmas gift!," Carey tells Billboard exclusively.
"As a songwriter, I feel so honored to have this song reach Billboard's [Hot 100] top 10 for the first time. I honestly never thought we'd be talking about this happening, but I'm so thankful to everyone who embraces this song as part of their holiday tradition.
