Mariah Carey rose to fame with her debut album “Mariah Carey” in 1990.
She was nicknamed “Queen of Christmas” because of the popularity of her holiday classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You” in 1994.
25 years after its release, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” became the most widely sold holiday song by a female musician.
On Friday, she was hit with a $20million copyright infringement lawsuit from Andy Stone.
He claimed to have co-written a song with the same title in 1989.
He claimed that Carey and her team illegally exploited his popularity and unique style and refused to reach an agreement with him.
Stone also argued that his version received an “extensive airplay” in 1993 and made Billboard charts.
Carey is very proud of her song’s climb to success and tries not to acknowledge how old it actually is.
In March, Dua Lipa was also sued by Artikal Sound System for copying their 2017 song “Live Your Life” in creating “Levitating.”
