Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' finally hits No. 1 25 years after its debut

It took a quarter of a century, but it finally happened: Mariah Carey's iconic 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' has finally topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the first time ever. 

Originally released in 1994, the Christmas jingle, which featured in Carey's Christmas album was not recognised as a single, and was not eligible to enter the Hot 100 charts. Times have changed, and so have the rules. The song is finally being recognised as a single, and rightfully tops this year's charts.
