Merry Christmas Album is by Mariah Carey, the American singer-songwriter and one of the biggest-selling artists of all time.
Released on the 1st of November 1994 under the Columbia Records, it was her first Christmas offering and fourth studio album.
Mariah recorded cover versions of well known Christmas songs along with original material. The Merry Christmas album received mixed reviews in the music press upon release, with some criticising the overall feel while others praised Mariah’s delivery.
Despite the mixed reviews by critics, the album reached number 3 on the Billboard 200 in the United States. In the United Kingdom, it peaked at 32.
The highest chart position was in Japan, where the album topped the chart. In the country, it has sold over 2.5 million copies, becoming the fourth best-seller by a non-Asian solo artist.
Worldwide sales are over 15 million copies, and it is the best-selling Christmas album ever.
Stand out tracks are ” Silent Night “, ” Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town ” and ” All I Want for Christmas Is You “, which is now considered a Christmas standard. The single grows more popular each year and regularly re-enters the charts each Christmas.
A commercially successful release, the single topped the charts in the Czech Republic, Hungary, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, and Spain. It reached number 2 in the United Kingdom, Australia and Japan.
If you are a fan of Mariah Carey, like up-tempo Christmas songs or are in need of something to play on Christmas Day, then the Merry Christmas album is one you need for your CD collection.
