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’ (Secret of the Night: Artists Earn Very Little Flows) But the real reason I’m sitting here in amazement and gratitude is to see the joy with this little The song I wrote 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 Maria said the artists are earning very little streams, one thing is for sure … the track has brought her tons of coins since its release.
Back in 2017, the song made Maria a 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 around 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.
