Mariah Carey, the undisputed champion of Christmas music, is back to reclaim her throne. This time, she is making a grand entrance with a brand new trailer that signals her return. Only a day after Halloween, Carey steps into her role as the Queen of Christmas, guiding us away from the eerie Halloween vibes and into the cozy, festive spirit of the holiday season.
In a 35-second video clip posted on Tuesday night, Carey is seen emerging from a block of ice, assisted by Halloween creatures. This dramatic thawing process is a metaphor for the transition from Halloween to Christmas, with Carey taking the lead. The video begins with a countdown clock showing “November 1 12:00,” marking the official start of the Christmas season.
“It’s Time!” – Mariah Carey
As Carey announces, “It’s time!” the scene transforms into a winter wonderland. Suddenly, she is not alone. Her twins, Monroe and Moroccan, join her, dancing joyously to the tune of Carey’s iconic Christmas anthem, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”
A Nostalgic Outfit Change
Before donning her Christmas attire for the video, Carey was spotted in a Jessica Rabbit costume from the movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” A fun nod to Halloween, adding a touch of nostalgia to the mix.
The Song That Defines Christmas
Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” released in 1994, has become synonymous with Christmas celebrations across the US. The song signals the end of Halloween and the beginning of the festive season. Interestingly, despite its popularity, the song didn’t secure the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 until 2019.
A Grammy-Winning Artist’s Christmas Tour
As a five-time Grammy Award winner, Carey is no stranger to the limelight. This year, she is bringing her Christmas spirit on a nationwide tour, “Merry Christmas One and All!” The tour will commence on November 15 in Highland, California.
From there, Carey will travel to various cities across the country, including Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Boston, and more. The tour will conclude at the Madison Square Garden in New York City on December 17, marking the end of the festive journey.
Mariah Carey’s return to her Christmas throne is a much-anticipated event. As she transitions from Halloween to Christmas, her fans eagerly await the festive vibes she brings with her music. The Queen of Christmas is back, and it’s time to celebrate!
