Mariah Carey Gets the Christmas Spirit Flowing In New Clip: ‘It’s Time’
Mariah Let us know the time with a seasonal social posting.
Halloween is over, it’s now time for the Queen Of Christmas to shine.
As the calendar flipped to Nov. 1, Mariah Carey let us know what time it is with a seasonal social post.
The clip opens in black-and-white with Carey riding a stationary bike dressed as a witch, surrounded by CG bats and jack o’lanterns.
Mariah’s winter wonderland is then opened up with a color punch. She squeals, “It’s finally!” And then, “All that I Want for Christmas is You” rings out.
Carey is the undisputed Queen of Christmas, with her 1994 holiday original topping the Billboard Hot 100 multiple times over the last few years and ranking as the most popular song of all time on the Billboard Holiday 100.
Her gift of Christmas spirit continues growing in the U.K. where “All that I Want for Christmas is You” finally reached No. 1 in December 2020 — 26 years after its release. This long journey to the summit set a new chart mark. Several weeks later, the record was broken again, when Wham’s “Last Christmas” finally claimed the crown, 36 years after its original release.
In Australia, where Christmas is peak summer, and a time for hitting the beach, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” took 24 years to reach No. 1, finally doing so in December 2018.
Carey will get into the swing of things next month with a four-performance run celebrating her “repertoire of classic holiday songs.” Her “Merry Christmas to All” dates, presented by Live Nation, will take place in December with performances in New York and Toronto.
For the record, it’s not time yet. Christmas is 54 days away, but who’s counting.
