Mariah Carey released ‘All I Want For Christmas’ back in 1994, but the song has continued to make the star money over the years. Let’s take a look at the royalties below…
The holiday favourite apparently earns the singer a whopping £376,000 per year, according to the Daily Mail.
However, this is just a small amount when it comes to the song’s overall royalties. As reported by The Economist in 2019, the hit’s earnings are believed to be totalled at over $60million.
Find out who Mariah Carey has collaborated with on another festive song in the clip below…
In 2015, Spotify confirmed that the track was the most popular Christmas track of the year, having over a 100million streams.
Despite its consistent popularity, Carey gave the festive hit a modern makeover when she collaborated with Justin Bieber back in 2011.
At the time, the young pop star was working on his own festive album, ‘Under The Mistletoe’.
In a chat with CapitalFM at the time, the Canadian said it was ‘really cool’ to work with the acclaimed Queen of Christmas.
“The new version’s really cool,” he said. “It starts out with a Disney kind of opening and then she starts the song and I come in during the second verse.”
It’s likely that the remix to Carey’s song didn’t take long to write, as the 51-year-old has previously claimed that the chart-topper took just ’15 minutes’ to jot down.
A producer on the song, Walter Afanasieff, told Billboard: “It was always the same sort of system with us.
“We would write the nucleus of the song, the melody primary music, and then some of the words were there as we finished writing it.
“That one went very quickly: It was an easier song to write than some of the other ones.”
