Merry Christmas! Well, sort of.
Just a few days since the start of November, Mariah Carey's hit holiday song All I Want For Christmas Is You has already returned to the charts 27 years after its release.
The move comes as no surprise to fans everywhere, as the song has had a place in the charts every holiday season since its release. 2020 also marked the fourth straight decade it became a number one hit.
Carey has also been well aware of its fame, as she's gone on to release numerous rerecordings of the song. The most recent re-recording with a music video companion was the track All I Want for Christmas Is You (Make My Wish Come True Edition) released in 2019.
Just recently, on Nov. 1, the artist posted a video of herself on Instagram smashing Halloween pumpkins and already enjoying a festive Christmas, all with the song's familiar tune playing in the background. A wrapped gift is also seen with "11/5" written on it, which could be telling of an announcement on Nov. 5.
A brief message appears at the end of Mariah's video: "It's time!!! to smash that pumpkin and treat it as pie... cause still gotta get through Thanksgiving!!!"
