Mariah Carey listens to her own Christmas music, because of course she does

'All I Want For Christmas' on repeat

How many times have you heard Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas”? 10 times? 100? 1000 times?! After all, it nearly always ends up in the top 10 singles EVERY YEAR.

Now, imagine you are Mariah Carey. Imagine how many times you would have heard that song on repeat. Imagine how many times you would walk into a party and someone would think “Haha, Mariah’s here. Let’s play “All I Want For Christmas” in the middle of summer because I’m so original”. Imagine how many times people would have walked up to you, Mariah Carey, and joked about what they want for Christmas. Countless times, I imagine.

Yet, despite probably hearing the festive track a few million times, the real Mariah Carey still plays Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas” at home, to herself and her child.

Need proof? Well, the real Mariah Carey posted a video of herself, at home, making her favourite sauce, dancing and singing along to “All I Want For Christmas”.

Perhaps she’s the reason the song has over 168 million listens (and counting) on Spotify, over 254 million on Youtube, and has been legally downloaded 3,200,000 times.

Of course, the real Mariah Carey probably owns the CD, which features the song "Miss You Most (At Christmas Time)” and "Joy to the World” as B-sides. Estimated total sales for the single top 14 million. Because people and Mariah Carey love Mariah Carey.
