Tis officially the season: Mariah Carey is dropping Christmas special soon

Nov 18 2020, 7:07 pm

Come on, let’s be real: all we want for Christmas is Mariah Carey, and all Mariah Carey wants for Christmas is us (well, you, it’s unclear who exactly, but one can dream).

So, with that being the case, it is only appropriate that she release an epic production on Apple TV+ featuring guest starts like Ariana Grande, Snoop Dogg, Jennifer Hudson, as well as dancing and cutting-edge, next-level animation.

Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special is officially dropping on Apple TV+ on December 4, making all our wishes come true.

“Faced with a holiday cheer crisis, the North Pole knows there’s only one person who can save the day: Santa’s great friend, Mariah Carey,” a release reads.

“Combining musical performances, dynamic dancing and groundbreaking animation, the undisputed Queen of Christmas jumps into action to create a holiday spectacular to make the whole world merry.”

Someone pinch us.

Along with releasing a new soundtrack single and music video for “Oh Santa!” on the same date, the Queen of Christmas’ Magical Christmas Special will feature guest stars Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Snoop Dogg, Misty Copeland, Mykal-Michelle Harris and more.

What do we mean by “more”? To name a couple: extra special appearances by Mariah Carey’s twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

The soundtrack to the Christmas special will also be available on Apple Music on December 4, and other platforms on December 11, so you can blast it during all those extra hours at home this holiday season.

It all ends on Christmas Day, when Mariah Carey will appear on Apple Music radio for a six-hour Holiday Hits special. But in all fairness, we’ll be watching and re-watching this one for a loooong time.
