Mariah Carey becomes first to have double platinum holiday ringtone


Released in 1994, “All I Want for Christmas is You,” is now the first seasonal ringtone to sell more than two million units.  The single, written by Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff, was a hit song on Carey’s “Merry Christmas” album.  It’s been the no. 1 holiday ringtone since 2006.

“Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ has become one of the essential musical hallmarks of the holiday season and continues to set records each year,” said Adam Block, GM/VP of Legacy Recordings, Sony Music Entertainment’s catalog division.
