Christmas is officially saved. Mariah Carey just dropped the latest collaboration of her original song, Oh Santa, featuring Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson. You read that right. This is no fever dream, this just happened in the year 2020.
Anticipating the premiere of Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special via Apple TV+ this Friday, our perennial Queen of Christmas teamed up with two powerhouse vocals for a trio version of Oh Santa. It’s the biggest musical crossover yet, as three bonafide divas share the stage in full festive outfits and–you guessed it–harmonized whistles. (Brb, crying.)
Just when we thought nothing could top All I Want For Christmas Is You, Mariah proves otherwise with a new anthem for Christmas. Mariah took center stage, absolutely slaying in a red-and-dark green strapless sequin plunge dress and pointing to Jennifer Hudson.
We already knew the music video was going to be legendary as the first few seconds were greeted by a powerful “Oh Santa!” by Jennifer, rocking a sparkling emerald gown.
“Where’s Ari? Come on, girl!” Mariah shouted as Ariana popped out behind dancing elves, donning a classic green velvet dress and signature high ponytail.
Proving that Mariah has still got it, she showed off her angelic whistle register towards the end of the song and shared the moment with fellow whistle queen Ari.
Oh Santa is just one of the songs featured on the soundtrack to Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special. Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, and other musical guests lent their voices to the album, which is filled with new interpretations of holiday classics.
The special, streaming exclusively on Apple TV+, also features appearances from Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Misty Copeland, Mykal-Michelle Harris, and Mariah’s own Christmas helpers–her twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
And that’s on vocals, on vocals, on vocals.
