With Christmas approaching, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has returned to #1 on the Global Spotify Chart.

Credited with 5.02 million global streams, “AIWFCIY” was Spotify’s #1 song on Saturday, December 23.

Post Malone’s “rockstar (featuring 21 Savage),” which has dominated the chart in recent weeks, slipped to #2 Saturday. It received 4.48 million streams.

“AIWFCIY” ruled Spotify on December 24 and 25 last year. It likely has a chance of doing the same this year.

— Along with reaching #1 on the global chart, Carey’s modern holiday classic improved to #2 on the US chart. It received 1.22 million US streams Saturday.
