The announcement was accompanied by a snap of the Fantasy hitmaker all dolled up in a sparkling ruby red low-cut dress featuring a thigh high split.

She showed off plenty of leg as she sat on a decorated Christmas wreath while finishing off the look with shiny red heels.

Her signature blonde tresses were done into curls that flowed like waves over her shoulder as her make-up included shiny lip and a smokey eye.

Carey has waited nearly three decades to see her classic Christmas song reach the top of the charts, after peaking at No. 3 on the Hot 100’s top 10 in 2018.

Mariah now has a total of 19 number one’s in the Hot 100, making her the solo artist with the most No. 1’s in the chart, and tying with the late Elvis Presley with the second most by any artist, behind The Beatles.

CNN reported in 2019 that the song has already garnered nearly $2million in royalties since it was first added to Spotify, and has earned a staggering $60million in royalties through the years.
