Sharing the news on her verified Instagram handle, Mariah said that the awards were presented to her over the weekend by the Guinness World Records.
Captioning photos from the moment, which she shared on Tuesday, Mariah said, “Thank you so much Guinness World Records for honouring me with three records in the 2020 book! Michael from @guinnessworldrecords presented me with a certificate on stage, so naturally, I asked him to join us for the #AllIWantForChristmasIsYou finale! 😉🎅💝.”
Confirming the news, Guinness World Records said that Mariah is being recognised as the highest-charting holiday (Christmas/New Year) song on the Billboard US Hot 100 by a solo artist.
