Listen to Ariana Grande’s New Christmas Song


How is Ariana Grande attempting to achieve Mariah Carey–style dominance over the pop market? Steps 1 and 2 ("Look like Mariah Carey" and "Sound like Mariah Carey," respectively) have already been accomplished, and now it's time for Step 3: Record a potential new addition to the Christmas canon, the way Carey did with "All I Want for Christmas Is You." Last year's Christmas Kisses EP failed to provide Grande with a future classic, so she's trying again this year with a new Christmas single, "Santa Tell Me." The good news is that it sounds nothing like Mariah. The bad news is that it sounds just like Amy Grant. They can't all be "Drummer Boy."
