It’s the holiday time and Mariah Carey is the reason for the season! Mariah aka Slayriah as I like to call her made headlines this week. Mariah Carey’s mega holiday anthem "All I Want For Christmas Is You" has made its return to Billboard Hot 100. Although Bruno Mars"Locked Out Of Heaven" is the #1 song in the country right now on the Hot 100, it is Carey who’s "All I Want For Christmas Is You" that deserves a big round of applause.
This week Mariah Carey re-enters the Billboard Hot 100 at the #29 spot. So why is this so amazing for you younger folks? Well because this song originally came out about 18 years ago. Thanks to Billboards new guidelines, which states that any song that has accumulated enough radio airplay, digital downloads sales, and online streams top crack the top 50 of the Hot 100 is permitted to chart again. The only other person to benefit from this new rule was Whitney Houston’s"I Will Always Love You" that re-entered at the #3 spot on the Hot 100, following her unfortunate death in February.
So seat back and relax and enjoy this Christmas classic from the remarkable talented Mariah Carey
