If you’re like most people who celebrate Christmas, then you’ve likely listened to the classic Mariah Carey hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You” about 100 times already — and that’s just today. The song debuted in 1994 and was an instant hit. It’s been one of those Christmas songs that has really held its own over the years, too. When it was featured in the film, Love Actually, it got even more popular.
While we really can’t get enough of it, whether we’re singing it in the car, on the street in a little low-key holiday carol singing, or belting it out at a bar after a few too many eggnogs, we’re definitely singing it this time of year. But now we have yet another reason to sing about the one thing we need for Christmas, because Mariah just released a new music video for the Christmas classic.
The singer released the video on Thursday, but it was already a big week for the song. The holiday hit climbed to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the first time ever — 25 years after it first came out.
