A collaboration between Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, and Jennifer Hudson sounds like the stuff of fairy tales, but they actually made our wildest dreams come true this holiday season. The three superstars joined forces in the music video for “Oh Santa!” and it’s the best early Christmas present we could possibly ask for.

The festive music video shows the trio performing the song on a glitzy stage, surrounded by backup dancers in festive outfits. “Oh Santa!” was previously released as one of the songs from Carey’s 2010 album Merry Christmas II You, and the new version is even more amazing.

Grande and Hudson are among the A-list stars who made an appearance in Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special, which aired on Apple TV+ on December 4th. “Oh Santa!” is one of the songs performed in the special, and it’s also included on the accompanying soundtrack.

The album also includes several timeless Christmas classics and some of Carey’s very best original songs. The first track that comes to mind is “All I Want For Christmas Is You”, which broke several major records when it topped the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time last year, 25 years after its original release.
