The song also set the bar for most-streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours by a female artist, with 10,819,009 streams last December, as well as the record for most weeks in the U.K. singles Top 10 chart for a Christmas song at 20 weeks.
On Saturday, Carey was presented copies of her pages from the “Guinness World Records 2020 Edition,” along with her record title certificate, by an official adjudicator from the organization. Guinness World Records’ Michael Empric gave Carey the documents onstage during her show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Guinness World Records adjudicator, Michael Empric said,
“We’re thrilled to welcome Mariah Carey into the Guinness World Records family through her incredible achievements for her hit single. This song has become a holiday staple, and it is very fitting to recognize this iconic tune in the 2020 book on its 25th anniversary celebration.”
Carey took to Instagram Monday to celebrate her accomplishments.
“Thank you so much Guinness World Records for honoring me with three records in the 2020 book!” she wrote
