It’s that time of year again, where we all start collectively listening to Michael Bublé tragically lone single Christmas album and the greatest Christmas song of all time — Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You.
First released in 1994 as the lead single from the singer’s fourth studio album, Merry Christmas, the song is now considered the best-selling modern Christmas song.
It has been covered by numerous other artists, parodied, featured in other media, and more.
Since its initial release, it has hit the charts every holiday season. Last December, it came in at number nine on Billboard’s Hot 100. It beccame the first holiday song break the top ten since Kenny G’s 2000 cover of Auld Lang Syne.
Its beloved reputation means it’s always exciting to get a new version of it. This might be the cutest version of all.
Carey uploaded a video yesterday (28 November) to Instagram, featuring her and her twins, Roc and Roe (short for Moroccan and Monroe).
In the video, Carey sings the song while her children assist her with backup vocals. Throughout the song, Carey helps Roc and Roe by telling them when to come in and vocalizing with them.
This is truly what the holiday season is about.
The singer originally released two music videos for the song.
In the first one, Carey is seen at home in grainy footage with her family. She also dons a Santa costume and frolics across a snowy mountain.
The second music video is in black and white.
It features Carey in a 1960s-inspired outfit, paying homage to The Ronettes. She also has backup vocalists and dancers in this video.
But the big question is: When are Roe and Roc going to put out their own duet album?
