In the UK, the single has had more than 2.8 million sales so far. It also holds the title for the UK’s Most-Streamed Christmas Song Ever, notching up 10.8 million streams over the last seven days.

Earlier this week, the Official Charts Twitter said it was a close call between Wham! and Carey, with neither song having made number one in the UK before.

All I Want for Christmas narrowly lost out on Christmas Number 1 to East 17 in 1994, while Wham! took second place to Band Aid’s Do They Know It’s Christmas? in 1984.

As the results show, Last Christmas will remain the record-holder for UK’s Best Selling Single To Not Reach Number 1.

Also this year, Carey released a brand new Christmas single, Oh Santa!, the video for which featured both Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson. Since its release on December 3, the video has amassed more than 20 million views on YouTube.
