Mariah Carey’s Christmas juggernaut “All I Want for Christmas” is the gift that keeps on giving.
The singer’s holiday classic, which was released 24 years ago, set a new one-day streaming record on Spotify on Christmas Eve.
The song was played 10.8 million times Monday on Spotify, besting the record previously set by rapper-singer XXXTentacion, whose song “SAD!” had 10.4 million streams on the day after his death in June, according to Spotify’s Chart Data.
Spotify did not immediately respond to a request for comment if Carey is the new record holder. The singer seemed surprised by the news, calling it “an amazing Christmas gift” in a tweet on Tuesday.

Earlier this month, “All I Want For Christmas” hit another milestone, becoming the highest-charting yuletide hit in 60 years on the Billboard Hot 100.
The song’s official music video has racked up more than half a billion views.
