Look, we're not ashamed to own the fact that we play this song a few times over the Christmas period, but if you've ever wondered during one of those rare quiet moments during the festive season...
just how much does Mariah Carey make in royalties from that song of hers, All I Want Is Christmas Is You..?
You know... this song.
Well, here's your answer.
We're guessing that's in USD too, so it's more like $650,000.
According to reports online, though, she's not the biggest earner from Christmas song royalties. The Daily Mail reports that Slade’s Merry Xmas Everybody (released in 1973) is the highest earning Christmas track, earning songwriters Noddy Holder and Jim Lea an estimated $870,000 in royalty income.
Time to write a Christmas song, perhaps?
