Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande collab confirmed for Apple Christmas special
Jennifer Hudson joins the pair for an 'Oh Santa!' remix on the companion album.
Deck the halls with diva collaborations and whistle tones, because Mariah Carey is welcoming an A-list roster of talent for her upcoming Apple TV+ Christmas special.
The Queen of Christmas is set to star in Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special alongside long-rumored collaborators Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson, who will feature on a remixed version of Carey's 2010 single "Oh Santa!" and its accompanying music video.
The single is set for inclusion on a companion soundtrack album for the project, which will be released on the same day as the special.
In addition to Grande and Hudson, Mariah's Magical Christmas Special features guest appearances by Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Misty Copeland, Mykal-Michelle Harris, and Carey's twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
The special's plot follows Carey attempting to solve a holiday cheer crisis after the North Pole enlists her help to save the day. As his greatest friend, Santa enlists Carey to enliven Christmas spirits through musical performances that will be tinged with live dancing and groundbreaking animation sequences.
In addition to the Magical Christmas Special, the "All I Want for Christmas Is You" singer will take over Apple Music Hits — Apple Music's new radio station — for a six-hour holiday hits special on Christmas Day.
Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special premieres Friday, Dec. 4 on Apple TV+. Watch the preview above.
