This month, her iconic Christmas song reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time since its release in 1994. It made its debut in as an EP and not a single, meaning it wasn’t allowed to compete in Billboard’s Hot 100.

This rule lapsed in 1998, however, allowing the All I Want for Christmas Is You to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 (peaking at No. 83 in January 2000).

The song was co-written with Walter Afanasieff and peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary and at No. 12 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart.
