Mariah Carey Christmas

Mariah Carey's hit single, 'All I Want For Christmas', is climbing up the charts in America - despite being released 23 years ago.

The 1994 classic snagged the number nine position in the Billboard Hot 100 - jumping two places from last week. 

The song enjoyed more than 25-million streams in the US for the week ending December 14.

It also saw 19,000 downloads sold in one week. 

'All I Want for Christmas' is Mariah's 28th top 10 single in America. 

She is now tied with Stevie Wonder for the fifth-most Hot 100 Top 10s - behind Michael Jackson, Rihanna, The Beatles, and Madonna respectively. 

The last time Mariah had a Top 10 single on the chart was 2009. 'Obsessed' peaked at number seven.

Ed Sheeran's 'Perfect' remix with Beyonce retained the top spot on the chart. It's currently at number two on the Coca-Cola Top 40 chart.
