The queen of Christmas herself has graced us again with her magical singing powers. Mariah Carey dropped her second rendition of the “All I want for Christmas is You” music video in honor of the 25 year anniversary. “We wanted to make a modern classic,” Carey said during a Q&A with Rolling Stone. “It’s kind of the opposite of the original video… This is more of a production.” The song first charted in early 1994 peaking at #55 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks (now named Hot Country Songs). The original video was released in a grainy homemade style footage with Carey dancing in the snow as well as enjoying cozy moments by the tree. The new version, directed by Joseph Kahn, displays a fresh storyline along with some tributes to the original video.

As her iconic album, Merry Christmas, celebrates its 25th birthday, Carey is also touring throughout the holiday season performing many of her classics that we have grown to know and love. The video premiered at midnight on Youtube as a continued celebration of what earned Carey her red and green throne. The song continues to break records as the video is now trending on Youtube and Twitter. The new deluxe edition includes the original album, plus a bonus disc featuring previously unreleased live tracks from Mariah’s 1994 St. John The Divine Benefit Concert, rare remixes, a brand-new, festive rendition of the Sugar Plum Fairy and additional seasonal tracks (which is available for purchase now).
