HITS Daily Double


Mariah Carey’s modern-day standard “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is the #1 Christmas song on both YouTube U.S. and Spotify globally this holiday season, according to stats broken out by the two platforms. But the overall champs are Pentatonix, who’ve landed three songs in the YouTube Top 10, and Michael Bublé, with five entries in the Spotify Top 20. Aside from Mariah, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande are the only artists who appear on both lists. Take a gander—and we don’t mean a male goose, although that, too, would be seasonably appropriate.
