A quick analysis of the popularity of Christmas songs–including that one from Mariah.

Statista has graphed Spotify data when it comes to Christmas songs streamed in 2017. It’ll be interesting to see how things compare this year.

So far this week, “All I Want for Christmas is You” has been streamed 1.3 million times (up 51.4% from last week) and has been played on North American radio no fewer than 285 times, up 153,6% from a week ago. Some stations are playing the song more than 40 times a week.
