All eyes will be on whether the legendary track climbs to the top of the charts.
Last year, the song reached number one on Billboard’s Top 100, with 37.6 million streams in the US alone, as per The Guardian.
Just yesterday (Wednesday, November 1), Carey declared that the festive season is finally upon us by posting a video to her Twitter.
In the hilarious clip, it shows the legendary dive quickly changing out of her Halloween costume and springing into a full-blown Christmas frock sitting on a reindeer.
I mean, would we expect anything less from the Queen of Christmas herself?

And if we were hit with those royalties, we’d be beaming with glee too.
Thanks to a study by The Economist, it was revealed that Carey earns about USD $2.5 million (AUD $3.9m or £2.1m) per year for 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'.
The study also said that by 2016 the artist had earned $60 million (AUD $93m or £52m) from the song released in 1994.
Additionally, after the song reached number one on the Billboard 100 for the third year in 2021, Carey has likely raked in another $12.5 million (AUD $19m or £10.8m), taking her earnings on the song to over $72 million (AUD $112m or £62m).
And if the song reaches number one again, Carey could be looking at another $72 million as a sweet, sweet Chrissy present this year.
