        I am well aware... but i don't think that it's something we should celebrate (the 20m thing) when the song has already outperformed that by a mile or two.

        • BTW, We Belong Together has surpassed 71 million annual streams on Spotify. (her 2nd biggest song this year).


          Mariah's top 10 songs of 2021: (so far)

          +225,184,940 - 1994 - All I want for Christmas Is You
          +71,036,530 - 2005 - We Belong Together
          +54,373,278 - 1995 - Fantasy
          +51,493,165 - 2003 - I Know what You Want (ft. Busta Rhymes & The Flipmode Squad)

          ALL of those songs have reached new annual peaks. I really want ABMB to also cross 50 million.

              not really... when there are actual sales numbers available... like the one from South Korea (1,5 million) which is not even included...

              • i think a certain publication should report the numbers to make it kind of like official. The "more than 16M" number which Wiki referenced to came from The Daily Telegraph.
                A place in time still belongs to us...

                  It's all good, Famous! We love everybody!

                  Anyway, I'm not sure it's a matter of "fairness". If the Classic Christmas playlist is intended to target Christmas songs from the 50-70's, that's cool. They need to remove a couple that fall outside of that parameter, I think.

                  Playlists aside, I think we have to admit that on the US Spotify anyway, RAT kicked AIW's butt this year. 900k lead on Christmas Day. Kuddos to Brenda. There, I said it.

                    How do these numbers compare to last year? Is 13M up or down from 2020?

                      I suspect that's because we don't have Christmas Eve in the chart week this year.

                      • Yep. That tells the tale. Except for AIW and LC, the rest of these songs lead the Classic Christmas playlist. It's definitely a big edge, if not the whole story. Note that Judy Garland's "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" is #7 on that playlist but #36 on US Spotify with 1.256 million streams. That is the one big disparity but it gives us a base line, I wager she's getting most of those 1.2M streams from the playlist.

                          This has been one of the bigger drops (positionally) this year. I think AIW logged 4 weeks at #1 in the Netherlands last year. Looks like #2 will be the peak this year. One week or two?

                              Paid, free and programmed streams have all different weights for BB, don't matter the total numbers we're seeing daily. It doesn't work that way.
                              I've read that RATCT has 3.2M programmed streams, AJHC 3.6M programmed streams, JBR 3M programmed streams and AIW 1.8M programmed streams, just for reference.

                              They don't have access to Amazon numbers on the other hand, that are key regarding Xmas songs (where AIW is #1).

                              They do wild predictions at this point LOL.
                              Yep. I think we said the same thing there. We don't really know how Spotify's raw streams shake out in terms of programmed, free or paid. So we don't really know how they impact BB. But Spotify is the biggest and the only meaningful streaming chart with numbers that we have so it makes sense that we fuss over the numbers there. However we slice it up, I don't like to see AIW at #4 and 900k behind RAT on Christmas Day!

                                This year Christmas felt like it whizzed past, and I am not ready to slow down my playing of Mariah's Christmas albums so they will still be in rotation for me this week and maybe next week too

                                    Last week it was #3, this week at #2. Next week is the only week left this season to get to that #1 spot.
                                    But it's okay. It's huge every year anyway.

                                        Maybe we'll snag #1 next week. But either way, 3 weeks top 3 is still great. And there is always next year.

                                          Yeah exactly. I mean if AIWFC had been on that playlist before and was randomly removed this year it would be fair to complain about it. But it has never been on that playlist before and no one said a word about it! This year it's suddenly a big issue cos Brenda and some other songs are getting more streams! Smacks of sour grapes to me! AIW doesn't fit on the classic Chrismas playlist for very obvious reasons. Anyone being objective should have no issue seeing that ;)

                                          I mean Mariah is still the dominant force overall anyway. She is still no 1

                                              Except for C(BPLH), the rest of them are a few of ten of thousands down compare to last yr.

                                                • I can't wait for Mimi to get the longest #1 song on Billboard this decade (unless there will be rule changes).

                                                  Also, non Xmas song related but I've been bopping more recently to IBLULT. It still sounds so so fresh!
