Quote of the Day: Mariah Carey

December 7, 2018
I felt like it was a little bit too early in my career to be doing a Christmas album. And then I decided to do it. “

In 2017, Carey spoke to Billboard about how her modern day Christmas anthem almost wasn’t. With Christmas still weeks away, the 1994 hit has already made its way to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Rolling Stone Top 100. In 2019, it was the most-streamed holiday song with 308.9M audio and video streams. Christmas is Mariah’s holiday – she recently told WSJ “I really do live from Christmas to Christmas.”
