Mariah Carey Sends Brenda Lee Flowers After Christmas Hot 100 No. 1 – Billboard

Written by on 07/12/2023

Mariah Carey has given Brenda Lee an early Christmas gift, from one holiday queen to another.

On Thursday (Dec. 7), the “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” singer revealed that Carey sent her a sweet bouquet of flowers, along with a message congratulating her on her holiday hit scoring the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.

On her Instagram Stories, Lee posted a photo of the flowers, along with the card sent from Carey that read, “Dearest Ms. Brenda, congratulations on your historic No. 1. Have a Merry Christmas. Love, Mariah.”

Lee, who soundtracked the post with Carey’s seasonal No. 1 hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” captioned the post, “Thank you for your sweet note, @mariahcarey! Wishing you the merriest Christmas, too!”

Lee’s No. 1 is, indeed, a historic one. Sixty-five years after the song’s initial release, “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” crowned the Dec. 9-dated Hot 100 this week. The past four Christmases, the song had peaked at the No. 2 spot behind Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” The track jumped up seven spots from the week prior, resting firmly within the chart’s top 10 at the No. 8 spot on the all-genre tally. Carey’s Christmas classic sits one spot behind at No. 2.

Lee celebrated the hit’s No. 1 position on the chart via Instagram on Dec. 5. “#RockinAroundtheChristmasTree is officially #1 on the @Billboard #HOT100 charts!” she excitedly shared. “Thank you so much for listening and rockin’ this holiday season! #65YearsLater #Hot100Charts #ARockinChristmas.”
