Mariah CareyShe made the world celebrate Christmas as if it was 1994 … her classic song, “All I Want for Christmas is You”, just set a record on Spotify.
Her iconic Christmas track on Christmas Eve set the all-time record for the largest single-day stream in Spotify history with 17.223 million broadcasts, according to Chart Data which provides daily music statistics from various sources.
Needless to say … Maria was awake by the news. She tweeted on Christmas Day and said, “I know people think I am making a ‘coin’ (The Night’s Secret: Artists Earn Very Little Flows) But the real reason I’m sitting here in amazement and gratitude is seeing the joy with this little The song I’ve written brings people. Thank you. & Merry Christmas !!! ”
The song was a smash hit when she dropped it in 1994 as part of her album “Merry Christmas”. While Mariah said the artists are making very little streams, one thing is for sure … the track has brought her a lot of coins since its release.
Back in 2017, the song made Mariah the whopping $ 60 million. That would be roughly $ 2.6 million a year. It’s unclear if Mariah withdraws the same amount every year … but millions all over the world undoubtedly still play.
After all, it is a classic.
If you’re curious … Maria said her inspiration for the song came back when she was a kid. She said she typed start and middle on a keyboard in a small house in upstate New York … in a single room.
