How Much Money "All I Want For Christmas Is You" Has Made For Mariah Carey

Since its release in 1994, Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You," has become the definitive pop song of the holidays, joining the ranks of "Jingle Bell Rock," "Rocking Around The Christmas Tree," "Last Christmas," and "Holly Jolly Christmas".

Despite 25 years of massive popularity, 2019 is actually the first year the song hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 list. And even though the song has not technically topped the charts until now, it has still pulled in wads of dough in royalties.

According to an 2016 estimate made by The Economist, Mariah Carey had earned more than $60 million in royalties for the song. No other Christmas or holiday song has come close.

Looking at results from Spotify, Wham's "Last Christmas" has earned about $1.5 million, Ariana Grande's "Santa Tell Me" has earned about $1.1 million, Michael Buble's "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" has earned about $1 million, and Justin Bieber's "Mistletoe" has earned about $950,000.

Since being added to Spotify, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" has brought in about $2 million in royalties, with another $600,000 estimated for the window of November 1 and December 25, 2019. To date, the song has over 609 million views on YouTube and over 602 million plays on Spotify.

In case you're curious, Mariah Carey's net worth is estimated at $520,000.
