As we all know, December is Mariah Carey’s month — the world acknowledges that, and so does her daughter. Carey, who shares 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with ex-husband Nick Cannon, recently took to Twitter to proudly show off a heartwarming card she received from her daughter in celebration of a music milestone.
“Congratz mama for the billionth year!” Monroe’s card read. “I love you Mommy, for-evah! The best mama ever. Billboard Hot 100.”

Monroe was of course referring to Mariah’s 1994 hit, “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which has not only topped the charts once again, but is currently the biggest song in the world, according to Billboard. Her holiday single has topped both the Billboard Global 200 charts and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts as of yesterday, December 20.
This isn’t the first time Mariah’s song has broken records nearly 30 years after its release — in 2019, she was honored with three records by the Guinness World Records organization during her Christmas show in Las Vegas. That year, she made history by becoming Billboard’s solo artist record holder for a highest-charting holiday song on the Hot 100.
