According to Chart Data, Carey's wintertime hit broke the Spotify record for the most streams in a single day, reaching 10.8 million streams as of Christmas Eve. The record was previously held by XXXTentacion for his single, “Sad!" The song reached 10.4 streams on June 19 — one day after he was shot and killed.

The accomplishment shouldn't come as a surprise, considering the track re-entered the iTunes charts back in November and has gaining steady streams since. The legendary singer took to Twitter in response to the news to share her shock and appreciation.
