The Queen of Christmas got an early gift this year courtesy of Guinness World Records.

During her holiday concert in Las Vegas over the weekend, Mariah Carey was presented with a record-breaking title certificate for her Christmas classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You” as well as a copy of the Guinness World Records 2020 edition.

The song recently broke the record for highest-charting holiday (Christmas/New Year) song on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart by a solo artist. It also earned the title for most streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours (female) and most weeks in the U.K. singles top 10 chart for a Christmas song.

“We’re excited to welcome Mariah Carey into the Guinness World Records family through her incredible achievements for her hit single, ‘All I Want for Christmas is You,'” Guinness World Records adjudicator Michael Empric said in a statement.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Carey’s holiday album, “Merry Christmas.” Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You Tour” finishes up its Las Vegas run on Nov. 30 and picks up again on the East Coast Dec. 7.
