Mariah Carey no doubt has one of the most popular Christmas albums every recorded. Her song ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ has become a staple during the Christmas season — and Mariah keeps on getting paid big bucks for it!

Since the song debuted in 1994, Carey’s song has become a go-to Christmas pop song during the holidays, along with mainstays “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Holly Jolly Christmas.” The song is one of the most played songs on the planet.

The holiday hit is Spotify’s most-streamed Christmas song of all time, with more than 821 million plays on the streaming service alone. “All I Want For Christmas Is You” also has more than 675 million views on YouTube since it was uploaded to the platform in 2009.

Even though the song has been around for 25 years, it hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list for the first time in 2019. Carey’s song has already earned more than $2 million (2019) in royalties since the song was first added to Spotify, according to a study by Broadband Deals, and that number is expected to continue to grow quickly.

It’s said that in December of each year, Mariah Carey rakes in between $600,000 and $1 million in royalties just from that one song.

The singer has earned more than $60 million in royalties from the song, according to a 2016 estimate by The Economist.

So needless to say, recording ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ was one of the smartest decisions that Mariah has ever made!
