Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” strings up a record-extending 17th week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart (dated Dec. 30).

The modern seasonal standard also tops the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart for a 12th frame.

Plus, Dean Martin’s “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!” hits the top 10 of both the Global 200 (11-7) and Global Excl. U.S. (13-10) for the first time; José Feliciano’s “Feliz Navidad” returns to the Global 200’s top 10 (12-10); and Kelly Clarkson’s “Underneath the Tree” makes its first appearance in the Global Excl.

The Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts, which began in September 2020, rank songs based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories around the world, as compiled by Luminate. The Global 200 is inclusive of worldwide data and the Global Excl. U.S. chart comprises data from territories excluding the United States.

Chart ranks are based on a weighted formula incorporating official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of audio and video music services, as well as download sales, the latter of which reflect purchases from full-service digital music retailers from around the world, with sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites excluded from the charts’ calculations.
