Mariah Carey continues her Christmas reign with a new collaboration. This time around, MC taps Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson for a new iteration of “Oh Santa!”
The powerful singing trio join forces in a new performance music video that dropped today. Set in Santa’s workshop, the big budget production includes elves, presents, and lots of holiday cheer. It was directed by Roman Coppola.
The Queen of Christmas originally released “Oh Santa!” In 2010 as part of her Merry Christmas II You LP. The revamped version is part of the newly-released “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special” for Apple TV+.
Mariah recently spoke about the new collaboration with Billboard. “[On the original], I was blending with myself, which [is] kind of one of my favorite things, but it was cool to be able to work with the different vocal textures and play around with it and reimagine it,” she said. “So that’s what happened. And visually, in the special, it really does feel like a girl group moment. I think we all had a good time with it. That was the fun part about it.”
