Plus, her holiday film was a ratings success!
There’s no stopping Mariah Carey around Christmastime. Aside from last year (with that truly horrible performance), the one and only Queen of Festivity is winning this 2015 holiday season and we have the numbers and photos to prove it.
Let’s first talk about her 1994 “All I Want For Christmas” hit. Yes, it’s a holiday classic and one of the only original contemporary holiday classics out there, might I add, but for the first time since its release 21 years ago, the song has reached a brand-new peak on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart at the number 18 position.
Surely, her Hallmark Channel film, A Christmas Melody, which aired on Saturday (December 19), helped that momentum. In case you missed all the PTA action, the Mariah-directed holiday flick, which was inspired by her Xmas tune, was the most-watched cable show of the day with 3.95 million viewers and scored a rating of 0.6 within the 18-49 age range.
Oh, and don’t forget her newly slimmed down figure and steadily improving vocals. Looks like love is working wonders on Mariah.
Mariah Carey is having a better Christmas than you.
