Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" Is Nation's
Best-Selling Contemporary Holiday Ringtone For Third Consecutive Year
With Cumulative Sales Topping 1.8 Million
nation's #2 ringtone from any genre, Mariah Carey's yuletide classic,
"All I Want For Christmas Is You," is topping the holiday ringtone
charts for the third year in a row with cumulative sales to-date of
more than 1.8 million copies. The best-selling seasonal ringtone of
all-time, Mariah's holiday gem became the very first seasonal
Mastertone to be awarded an RIAA certification in 2006 and was awarded
an RIAA platinum certification last year.
"All I Want For Christmas Is You" was first heard as a key track on Mariah Carey's Merry Christmas
album. Originally released in 1994, Merry Christmas
has gone on to become one of the top-selling holiday collections of all
time, selling more than 11 million copies worldwide while earning 5x
platinum certification from the RIAA.
The ongoing impact of
Mariah's yuletide perennial has inspired one of this year's hottest new
seasonal ringtone releases from Legacy Recordings: a So So Def Remix of
"All I Want For Christmas Is You" featuring Jermaine Dupri and Bow Wow.
