WATCH: Mariah Carey opens wine bottle with just her voice

While many an opera singer has tried to smash a wine glass with their pipes, US songstress Mariah Carey used hers to crack open a bottle of white Burgundy over the weekend.

Carey posted a video on her Twitter account at the start of this week that showed her singing to a bottle of Drouhin white Burgundy fastened with a screwcap, which flew off when she hit the high note.

The singer’s video comes after a string of posts including the hashtag #bottletopchallenge, which has seen people all over the world finding increasingly creative ways to crack open their wine.

Carey’s attempt at the challenge has surpassed 1.5 million likes and 25 million views on Twitter since it was uploaded on Sunday, making it one of the most viral tweets of 2019.

Burgundian estate Drouhin was honoured to be used for the singer’s turn, retweeting Carey’s video and adding: “Many thanks to @mariahcarey for choosing our ‘Laforet’ wine from Burgundy for the #bottletopchallenge”.
