Update, November 2 at 9 a.m.: No, really! Mariah Carey announced her new Christmas single “Fall in Love at Christmas,” featuring gospel musician Kirk Franklin and singer-songwriter Khalid. The icon of pop and Christmas tweeted a preview of the song, which arrives on November 5. What’s more, she’s set to perform the song on her upcoming Apple TV+ special Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues, which debuts in December. The special follows her previous Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special, also released on Apple TV+ in 2020. You know what this means: It’s time to get festive.
Original story follows.
Halloween is dunzos. Get over it, idiots! Mariah Carey rang in the new season with a video asserting her God-given right to all of X-mas season. And as the Christmas Creep encroaches ever closer on the calendar, Mariah’s power only grows stronger. On midnight of 11/1, Carey posted a video of herself smashing a pumpkin, then smiling politely (and teasing a new release on November 5). Mariah Carey hath slain Halloween, long live Christmas. What’s that — there’s still a month until American Thanksgiving arrives? Get real. There are two types of people that can thrive in this dark holiday interregnum: Nightmare Before Christmas goths and Mariah Carey stans. Choose your side wisely.
