Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is the gift that keeps on giving. Twenty-five years after Mariah’s holiday hit was first released, the legendary singer has dropped a new music video for the popular holiday song just in time for Christmas.
The new version starts with a young girl, actress MyKal-Michelle Harris from Mixed-ish fame, who catches a glimpse of Carey in a fitted Santa suit posing as a mannequin in a store window. Mariah even enlisted her eight-year-old twins Monroe & Moroccan Canon, who appear in the video.
The seemingly timeless tune finally reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 list — a historic feat 25 years in the making. Per The Economist, the song is still pumping out money to the tune of $60+ million in royalties, quicker than you can say “Happy Holidays.” Today, that number is suspected to be even higher, as streaming continues to balloon royalty figures.
Since being added to music streaming platform Spotify (SPOT), Carey’s song has already earned over $2 million in royalties, according to studies. It’s estimated to bring in an additional $600,000 between November 2019 and this Christmas.
Make My Wish Come True Edition of “All I Want For Christmas Is You”, sounds like the perfect stocking stuffer.
