Another Christmas, another round of modern-day carols vying for holiday classic status.

Jimmy Fallon has been known to dabble in song as host of The Tonight Show, and this season he's recruited all-around pop diva Ariana Grande and reigning collab queen Megan Thee Stallion for his own Yuletide cheer.

'It Was a (Masked Christmas)'

"It Was a (Masked Christmas)" brings all the retro ho-ho-holiday charm of a "Last Christmas," very Wham! featuring George Michael vibes, but with lyrics for our covid-concerned present:

"It was a masked Christmas, we stayed in the house
We covered our nose and covered our mouth

We'll be in line for a booster"
