Video out 5am tomorrow! :santa:


Bit of a shady-looking moment from J-Hud in the thumbnail :D

Dunno actually! If we were going to, it'd be out by now elsewhere...

Here for this 2020 Me Against The Music (Xmas Edition) type of affair :disco:

Hopefully there's no kissing though

I can't wait to waste money on multiple formats of this! 2 more number ones and she beats the Beatles

Oh I assumed it would be exactly the same record with the backing singers pasted in and zero new vocals from MC, as per her usual duets!

I forgot she was on this. Can't wait to see the effortless glam.

Don't get me wrong. I love her (I'm not a loon, but I love many of her songs) but she doesn't do herself any favours trying to still look 'fit' when she clearly can't pull the tight dresses anymore.
Plus her face looked as wide as a frying pan.
But, don't forget. Still love her.

That video was rubbish until the last 40 seconds. The double whistle moment with Ariana was FABULOUS :disco: I was legit surprised Mimi was open to that. They look really good together.

It's still a shame though. Witch so much starpower, they could've had a much more thematic/individualized video.

The vocal arrangements were nice I thought. I think they did well with trying to highlight everyone's strengths, whilst still keeping Mimi as the HBIC

The song is still amazing.

The video does what it needs to do (and has some weird elf dancing). Ariana looks good and Mariah definitely fits in the dress well enough.

They all sound good and the sleigh bells make it nice and festive. Number one incoming :disco:

They sound SO good together. There is a lot more J-Hud than I’d imagined in my mind but I’m not complaining.

The double whistle ‘Santa’ at the end is everything!

So the only track I’m seeing that is new from the album is Sleigh Ride

I kept thinking throughout that Ariana was under played, but she saved it for the end with Mimi

I’m not sure it’s quite as joyful as the original but I’m here for the song getting more exposure

Jennifer looked lost? I thought she was all over the song tbh.

I know the words to this song and I’m still not sure what Ariana is singing half of it :D

This is fantastic! I was always wary of putting the video for the original version on my Xmas playlists because the ad for her perfume at the start irrationally annoyed me, so this will be my default version going forward now :disco:

Yeah that's about the only play I'm giving that.

Very concerned for her tits. Is she joining the Cock Destroyers?

I always had a soft spot for Oh Santa, but I’ve not listened to it in a while and I now think it’s pretty bleak. It’s everything that AIWFC isn’t. The melody is barely there and I can’t make out a word anyone’s singing. I’d honestly have preferred she used this moment and the two ladies on a different, far more worthwhile song.

Their voices sound so good together. The vocal blend is heavenly. I’m honestly so happy with this. It’s joyous.

It doesn’t scream or even whisper #1 but I love it!
