The vocalist, who has actually ended up being referred to as the Queen of Christmas throughout the years, thanks to her hit track “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” just recently opened to Billboard about her collab with Ariana and Jennifer.
“I composed ‘Oh Santa!’ for my album Merry Christmas II You, which was sort of the follow-up to my very first Christmas album…we have a number of,” she showed the outlet. “And so I think it was all about the actual event, of course, of doing ‘Oh Santa!’ with Jennifer and Ari, but it was also like, how do I see this as a producer? How do I see these vocals having different textures, what are they?”
“Because originally, I was blending with myself, which that’s kind of one of my favorite things, but it was cool to be able to work with the different vocal textures and play around with it and reimagine it,” Mariah discussed. “So that’s what happened. And visually, in the special, it really does feel like a girl group moment. I think we all had a good time with it. That was the fun part about it.”
