We're knee-deep into the holiday season and Mariah Carey is ready to take her crown. Today, December 4, brings her festive special Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special to Apple TV+ and with it a new version of her 2010 Christmas song "Oh Santa!" The 2020 rendition features a couple of special guests, Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson. Check it out above.
Carey may prosper during Christmas but she has already enjoyed a busy year, releasing her memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey in September and a new album of rarities shortly after. She also teased the existence of a grunge-inspired album she made in the mid-90s.
Arian Grande dropped her new album Positions at the end of October. It features the single "Positions" plus appearances from The Weeknd and Doja Cat among others.
Jenifer Hudson, meanwhile, will soon mark the one year anniversary of instant cult classic Cats. She was recently cast in an upcoming Aretha Franklin biopic which, presumably, will feature fewer scenes in which James Corden licks his paws.
