American pop diva, Mariah Carey, has made history as the first artist to top the Billboard charts in four separate decades.
Carey has had many hits over the years, but her classic holiday song, All I Want For Christmas Is You, has been number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week dated 4 January, 2020, based on sales, radio airplay and streaming data, making it the third week atop the rankings.
According to Channel 24, Carey has had number one singles in the 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and now 2020s. The hit song was first released in 1994 and gained new fame after it was included on the soundtrack of the 2003 film, Love, Actually.
The bubbly holiday tune topped the charts for the first time in late 2019, thanks to a change in Billboard’s rules as to what could be included on the top songs list.
Carey dropped a new video for the song, which counted towards the Hot 100 placement, and released the song as a stand-alone CD for the first time.
According to Billboard, All I Want For Christmas Is You is Carey’s 19th number one song, putting her just one song behind The Beatles’ overall record of 20 top songs.
The singer took to Twitter to celebrate the achievement. She tweeted, “Yaaaaaaaaay!!! We Did It” along with a stream of champagne and party emojis and added, “But… what’s a decade”, to hide her age.
Here's is the original tweet:

The tweets that were shared by the hackers referred to her ex, Eminem, and the size of certain body parts. Racial slurs also made their way into the tweets.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, some of the tweets also mentioned a hacker group who got into Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's account in August, the Chuckling Squad.
Briefly.co.za noticed that many of Mariah's fans figured that singer Camila Cabello was behind the racially insulting tweets.
