Mariah Carey's Christmas album returns to Top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart.

All I want for Christmas is... royalties
While her ex husband is out here making a fool of himself with this new Eminem beef, Mariah Carey is paying them both dust while rolling in this years royalties from 'All I Want for Christmas Is You.' Speaking of which... all I want for Christmas is 1% of the royalties Mariah gets for that track. Given the huge money machine involved, do you think 1% would be enough to cover someone's rent for at least a year? Her 1994 'Merry Christmas' album has returned to the top 10 on the Billboard 200 Chart this week. The project sits pretty at #9 jumping 12 spots with 37,000 equivalent album units. This being earned Stateside in the week ending December 5th (up 63%), according to Nielsen Music. The album spawns her festive mega smash 'All I Want for Christmas Is You,' which has so far peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart (currently and January 5th, 2019).

Merry Christmas has sold 5.7 million copies in the States, making it the third-largest selling holiday album since Nielsen Music began electronically tracking sales in 1991. MC recently celebrated 25 years of 'Merry Christmas' with a deluxe re-release and a slew of Christmas concerts in Vegas. In a new interview released today, Mims teased a new music video which was directed by Joseph Kahn, and then Kahn tweets this:
Kind of random, as I had no idea she was dropping visuals later tonight and I'm a hardcore MC fan. It will probably just be another Christmas visual, but at least the footage will be new. If the video is a brand new 2019 edition of 'All I Want for Christmas Is You,' it will go to show how badly Mariah is itching for that number one! There's a reason why she put herself up to do the Christmas campaign for Walkers Crisps, although this would be something she'd look down on years ago. New video though! I'm looking forward to it.
