Mariah Carey jingles all the way back to No. 1 on Billboard's Holiday 100 songs chart with her modern classic carol "All I Want for Christmas Is You," which rises 2-1.
(Like the Billboard Hot 100, the Holiday 100 ranks songs via a formula blending sales, radio airplay and streaming, only for holiday songs of all eras. All charts will refresh tomorrow, Dec. 18, on Billboard.com.)
Since the Holiday 100 launched in December 2011, "Christmas" is the only song that has reigned in each season. It tallies its 14th week at the summit, of 18 total weeks that the chart has been tabulated.
"Christmas" reclaims the Holiday 100 summit despite not leading any of the chart's main component rankings. It places at No. 2 on Holiday Digital Songs, with 37,000 downloads sold (down 3 percent), according to Nielsen Music; No. 3 on Holiday Airplay (25.3 million in radio audience, up 18 percent); and No. 4 on Holiday Streaming Songs (2.1 million U.S. streams, up 19 percent).
