Mariah Carey is having the best Christmas ever.

Twenty-four years since its release, the pop diva’s holiday classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has broken the global Spotify record for biggest single-day streams. According to Chart Data, the seasonal tune was streamed 10.8 million times on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24.

A surprised Carey reacted to the news on Twitter, writing, “Wait… What?!”

The single-day global streaming record was previously held by the late XXXTentacion, whose song “SAD!” racked up 10.4 million streams on Spotify on June 19.

“All I Want for Christmas Is You” is currently No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 after peaking at No. 6 a week ago. It is also the highest-charting holiday season-themed hit in 60 years, according to Billboard.

The song, which Carey wrote and produced with Walter Afanasieff, appeared on her first Christmas album Merry Christmas in 1994. It is the 11th best-selling single of all time and had earned $60 million in royalties as of 2017.
