Mariah Carey – “All I Want for Christmas Is You”
Originally Released in 1994, Carey’s Christmas standard finally reached number-one in 2019 and has bounced back up to the top every holiday season since, totaling eight weeks on top (so far). It was her 19th number-one hit on the Hot 100, extending her record for the most number-one hits by a solo artist and getting her one step closer to the all-time record of 20 number-one singles held by The Beatles.
The Billboard Hot 100 has been measuring the most popular songs since 1958, starting with Ricky Nelson‘s “Poor Little Fool.” Since then more than 1,100 songs have reached the pinnacle, though Billboard’s methodology has changed over the years as music consumption has evolved.
For instance, sales used to be tracked by Nielsen from Monday to Sunday, but in 2015 that changed to Friday to Thursday. Also, in the early years of the charts sales were given more weight than radio airplay as the purchasing of singles was much more common than it would be in later years. Eventually that shifted as full-length albums became more prevalent and single sales diminished. In 1998 Billboard amended its rules yet again to allow a song to appear on the Hot 100 even if it was airplay-only and wasn’t available to purchase as a single. Then in 2007 Billboard started counting audio streaming performance towards the Hot 100. And in 2013 YouTube video streams were added to the formula.
In the Hot 100 era, The Beatles hold the record for the most number-one hits with 20 different chart leaders. They’re followed closely by Mariah Carey, who has had 19 songs reach number-one. Carey’s 1995 duet with Boyz II Men, “One Sweet Day,” set the record for the most weeks at number-one with 16. That record stood for more than two decades before it was tied by “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber in 2017, and then ultimately broken by Lil Nas X, whose “Old Town Road” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, dominated the chart for 19 weeks in 2019. But the song named by Billboard as the number-one song of all time was The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights,” which spent only four weeks at number-one but obliterated the record for the most weeks in the top 10 with more than a year in that region.
As you can see from the above songs, history is still regularly being made on the Hot 100. Come back every week for more.
