By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Impossible not to hear in December each year, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has got to be the most listened to Christmas song.
According to the Latin Post, Carey’s Christmas song has now been streamed more than one billion times on Spotify.
“Thank you Spotify, the #lambily, and everyone who streams this song to add a little bit of festivity to the season! I truly appreciate each and every one of these 1 billion streams!” wrote 52-year-old Mariah Carey on Facebook.
“My friend Santa made some time for us last night and stopped by on his sleigh. Apparently, Blitzen had a headache. Hahaha Merry Christmas,” Mariah posted on Instagram where she posted a photograph with her Spotify 1 billion plaque and Santa Claus and a series of other photographs.
Her Christmas song which is now a season classic hit the Billboard Hot 100 again for a third consecutive year.
Billboard said Mariah is the first artist to have the same song at No. 1 on their chart three separate times.
Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You”, which she wrote herself, was first released in 1994 and since then it has become one of the most popular songs of the Christmas season.
According to the Latin Post, one of their sources who manages artists said singers normally make between .003 and .004 of a US dollar per single stream. That translates to a sum somewhere between $3,249,600 and $4,332,800 on Spotify streaming alone.
