Sixteen years ago, [lastfm]Mariah Carey[/lastfm] released an album of Christmas music called, well, Merry Christmas, which included the smash hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Now, get ready for Merry Christmas II You, the sequal!
The first single from Carey’s second album of Christmas songs is “Oh Santa” and was released to iTunes today:
She’s already promoting the album with a listening party scheduled for October 20th in New York City, which could lead to a confirmation of her long-rumored pregnancy. She was said to be four months pregnant in mid-August, which would mean she’d be at six months by the time the listening party rolls around …and that baby bump would likely be too big to ignore.
As for the album, it features Carey’s takes on classics such as “O Little Town of Bethlehem ” and “O Holy Night.” It also features a new version of “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” which is confusing because why mess with perfection?
Do you need a second Christmas album from Mrs. [lastfm]Nick Cannon[/lastfm]? Or do you still rock the first one pretty hard come Decemeber? Let us know in the comments!
