Mariah Carey Makes History As First Artist To Hit No. 1 In Four Separate Decades

The singer scored another milestone on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Mariah Carey is closing out 2019 in an epic way.

The singer-songwriter has become the first artist ever to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart in four separate decades, Billboard announced on Monday.

Carey has now had No. 1 hits in the 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and 2020s ― thanks to the recent chart-topping success of her 1994 Christmas classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”

The song charted at the No. 1 spot earlier this month, 25 years after its release. It has now spent its third week atop the Hot 100 chart, the latest of which is dated Jan. 4, 2020, the music publication noted.

Carey’s 19 No. 1 songs include hits like 1996′s “Always Be My Baby” and 2005′s “We Belong Together.”

The singer has celebrated a number of music milestones this holiday season.

“All I Want for Christmas Is You” became the first holiday song to reach the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 chart since The Chipmunks’ 1958 “The Chipmunk Song.” Last month, Guinness World Records named Carey’s song the most streamed track on Spotify by a female artist in a 24-hour window.

Carey released a new music video for “All I Want for Christmas Is You” earlier this month featuring a surprise cameo from her 8-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.

On Tuesday, she celebrated her Hot 100 chart milestone with her fans on Instagram.

“Yaaaaaaaaay!!! WE. DID. IT,” she wrote, adding “But.... what’s a decade?”
