Mariah Carey's 'Oh Santa!' Powers to Number One

Photo Courtesy - Island/Def Jam Records(NEW YORK) -- Mariah Carey just got an early Christmas present -- her new holiday single "Oh Santa!" has just jumped to number one on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart after just two weeks.

According to Billboard, the single's journey to number one on that chart is the fastest since they started tracking things electronically back in 1993.  Even Carey's classic "All I Want for Christmas Is You" never hit number one on that chart -- the highest it ever got was number six.

"Oh Santa!" is now Carey's first number one on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart in 14 years.  The last time she was at the top was back in 1996 with "One Sweet Day."
