The record makes her the biggest-selling artist with the most No.1s for any solo artist.

One of her biggest song is the timeless, evergreen All I Want for Christmas Is You, written and produced by Carey, and it continues the climb the charts every single Christmas.

She has also released a holiday album called Merry Christmas, which is currently the bestselling global holiday album of all times, having sold over 14 million copies to date.

Her voice and talent have been recognised as she’s won five Grammy awards (having been nominated for 34) and 21 American Music Awards. She’s also received awards celebrating her achievements and the longevity of her career, such as the World Music Award for World’s Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium and Billboard’s Artist of the Decade Award.
