Last week, Carey returned to the stage after almost two years and performed a remixed version of We Belong Together with rappers Jadakiss and Styles P at Global Citizen in Central Park.
“I have some special friends as well. And I thought it would be nice since we’re in the New York area to relive the splendor. I have a couple friends who are native New Yorkers,” she said, introducing the rappers.
Mariah’s ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ has Created a Record on Billboard Charts

Every year, around the Christmas season, the song sees a jump in hits and searches. Last year, the track became the first song in history to reach no. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 during three different runs on the ranking. In June this year, Carey was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
