When it comes to Christmas songs, there are unfaltering beloved hits that seem to infiltrate every single playlist during the holiday season. Our top favourites have always been George Michael’s “Last Christmas” and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” so imagine our delight when we found out that the renowned songstress re-released the Christmas hit this season with a brand new music video. An ingenious move as the initiative has catapulted the iconic song to claim the number one position on the Billboard 100 charts for the very first time. The occasion marks a significant milestone for the Christmas single which was first released in 1994 and although some close calls on the Billboard charts, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” never claimed the topmost position until now.

Commenting on the new video during a YouTube livestream Mariah Carey said, "We wanted to make a modern classic. It's kind of the opposite of the original video. This is more of a production."

And a magical production it is, a Mariah-esque rendition of The Nutracker complete with ice skating Santas, snow and elaborate sets that are giving us all the Christmas feels.
