Mariah Carey has enlisted every A-lister in Hollywood to help her celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Carey just released a brand new music video for the holiday classic with some of her celebrity friends singing along to the hit song. Features include Nick Cannon, Kim Kardashian West, James Corden, Brandy, Ciara, Ariana Grande, Floyd Mayweather, Chance The Rapper, Katy Perry, Snoop Dogg and Tyler Perry … just to name a few. There’s more than 50 stars in the video.
Carey posted a snippet of the video to her Instagram account. She wrote, “WOW! This is one of the best Christmas gifts I could ever have gotten. I am so thankful to all of my friends and favorite artists who participated in this video. You brought a huge smile to my face. THANK YOU! ❤️❤️❤️ (Full video on YouTube).”
This video comes just a few days after the single reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The holiday classic was originally released in 1994 on Carey’s Merry Christmas album. Last year, the song peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100 charts. According to Billboard, the song is the second holiday No. 1 ever on the Hot 100, joining The Chipmunks’ “The Chipmunk Song.” The song put Carey just one No. 1 shy of The Beatles’ record of 20. Other acts with the most Hot 100 No. 1’s are Rihanna with 14, Michael Jackson with 13, and Madonna and The Supremes with 12 each.
Carey recently released an all new version of her “All I Want For Christmas Is You” video, featuring previously-unreleased footage. “Kicking off the festivities with a brand new video cut for All I Want For Christmas Is You (Unreleased Video Footage) …hope you like it!!! #MerryChristmas25,” she tweeted. She also released her Merry Christmas (Deluxe Anniversary Edition) album on Nov. 1.
