What is the All I Want For Christmas Is You?
"All I Want for Christmas Is You" is a Christmas song performed by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey. Columbia Records released it on October 29, 1994 as the lead single from her fourth studio album and first holiday album, Merry Christmas (1994). The track is an uptempo love song that includes bell chimes, heavy back-up vocals, and synthesizers. It is the best-selling modern day Christmas song and solidified in popular culture and music. Two music videos were commissioned for the song: the song's primary music video features grainy home-movie-style footage of Carey, her dogs and family during the holiday season, as well as Carey dressed in a Santa suit frolicking on a snowy mountainside. Carey's then-husband Tommy Mottola makes a cameo appearance as Santa Claus, bringing Carey a gift and leaving on a red sleigh. The second video was filmed in black and white, and features Carey dressed in 1960s style in homage to The Ronettes, alongside back up singers and female dancers. Carey has performed "All I Want for Christmas Is You" during numerous live television appearances and tours throughout her career. In 2010, Carey re-recorded the song for her second holiday album, Merry Christmas II You, titled "All I Want for Christmas Is You (Extra Festive)". Carey also re-recorded the song as a duet with Canadian singer Justin Bieber for his 2011 album Under the Mistletoe, titled "All I Want for Christmas Is You (SuperFestive!)". The song has also been covered by many artists over the years. In the years since its original release, "All I Want for Christmas Is You" has been critically acclaimed; it was once called "one of the few worthy modern additions to the holiday canon" in The New Yorker. It has become established as a Christmas standard and continues to surge in popularity each holiday season. The song was commercially successful, topping the charts in Australia, Austria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Latvia, Lithuania, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland while reaching number two in Japan, Germany and the United Kingdom, number three in the United States, and the top 10 in several other countries. With global sales of over 16 million copies, the song remains Carey's biggest international success and is the 12th best-selling single of all time, and the best selling Christmas single by a female artist overall. As of 2017, the song was reported to have earned $60 million in royalties.On November 24, 2019, the song won three records in Guinness World Records for one of the best-selling and most recognizable Christmas songs, most streamed song on Spotify in 24 hours (female) (10,819,009 streams in December 2018) and most weeks in the UK singles Top 10 chart for a Christmas song (20) titles...
