Mariah Carey Shares New Single Oh Santa! Featuring Ariana Grande And Jennifer Hudson

Friday, 04 December 2020 Written by Laura Johnson

Mariah Carey has released a new Christmas single.

Oh Santa! sees the powerhouse vocalist teaming up with two others; Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson, trading festive verses and impressive, ear-piercing vocal runs. 

The release coincides with the arrival of Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas musical special on Apple TV. Previously discussing the collaboration with Billboard, she said:

"I wrote 'Oh Santa!' for my album Merry Christmas II You, which was sort of the follow-up to my first Christmas album -- we have several [Laughs] -- and so I think it was all about the actual event, of course, of doing 'Oh Santa!' with Jennifer and Ari, but it was also like, how do I see this as a producer? How do I see these vocals having different textures, what are they? Because originally, I was blending with myself, which that's 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. 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."

Carey's had a busy year, dropping 'The Rarities' record in October just days after releasing her memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey. 

Grande, meanwhile, put out her new album, 'Positions', in October, and Hudson has been busy playing the leading role in Respect, the upcoming biographical film about legendary American singer Aretha Franklin.
