(CNN) – Mariah Carey got an early Christmas present: a Guinness World Records title.
The pop diva is being honored for the achievements attached to her classic international hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
That recently re-released song set three world records: The highest-charting holiday song on the Billboard U.S. Hot 100 by a solo artist, the most streamed track on Spotify in a 24-hour period by a female singer, and the record for the most weeks in the U.K. singles Top 100 for a Christmas song.
Carey was presented with her certificate during a holiday show in Las Vegas.
“All I Want For Christmas Is You” is one of the most popular and best selling holiday songs in history. It features piano, the xylophone and Carey’s five-octave vocal range.
