Mariah Carey’s 1994 holiday classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You”, from her first Christmas album, Merry Christmas, has reportedly set a new one-day streaming record on Spotify.

The Washington Post noted that the track was played 10.8 million times on Spotify on Christmas Eve. The song topped the record set by late rapper XXXTentacion, who logged 10.4 million streams with SAD! a day after his death in June.

Carey called the new milestone “such an amazing Christmas gift” in an Instagram post on Tuesday.

Rolling Stone reports that the record-breaking streams of “All I Want For Christmas Is You” didn’t earn the songstress or her record label a fortune, as 11 million streams at around $0.006 a stream translates to only $66,000.

Nearly a quarter century after its release, “All I Want for Christmas” Is You reached its highest peak this year  — No. 6 — on the Billboard Hot 100 chart; it’s currently No. 7.
