We’re just eight days away until the Justin Bieber Christmas album, Under the Mistletoe, changes everything, and with such little time to go, it’s no wonder tracks are popping up all over.

This morning, Usher called in to On Air With Ryan Seacrest to premiere his duet with Bieber, the song that often also goes by the title “Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire.” Click over to listen to the track, and check out this behind-the-scenes vid that went up over the weekend:

Maybe it’s just that the holidays are almost upon us — Halloween in one week! — but I think it’s is kind of fun. Sure, “The Christmas Song” has been done to death, but the R&B-styled tune isn’t the worst, and Usher is a nice compliment to Bieber’s crooning. It doesn’t hurt that a portion of sales from Under the Mistletoe will be going to charity.

And if you’re still feeling the Bieber Fever, it was also announced that the Biebs will be performing a special holiday concert on the Today show the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Plan your holiday travel accordingly.

Be honest: Who loves Christmas music and will be picking up a copy? Do you like this duet better or worse than “Mistletoe”?
