It wouldn’t be December without a heaving helping of new holiday tunes now would it?
Miley Cyrus isn’t the only one getting in the Holiday day spirit on this blessed #NewMusicFriday. Our faithfully underrated LGBTQ warriors Allie X and MNEK are also getting into the holiday spirit and keeping us toasty this season with their very own Christmas offerings!
First up is Allie X‘s sparkling rendition of the Wham! classic “Last Xmas,” which is arguably the only Christmas song that matters next to Mariah Carey‘s unstoppable “All I Want for Christmas Is You.“
Drifting above warm waves of pulsating ’80’s-like synths, Allie croons out a killer romantic and modern rendition of the Christmas staple. Throw in some saxophone for good measure (cause like Christmas, duh), and you got yourself a winner!
MNEK‘s offering, however, is a brand spanking new Christmas original called “Stopped Believing In Santa,” – a soulful mid-tempo driven by layers of his soulful harmonies, throwback-feeling R&B beats and sleigh bells in the distance as he ponders over a breakup. It’s a refreshing and unexpected take on the Holiday season, and I am very much here for it.
So yes, go ahead and settle in, pour yourselves a coco, and strike up a fire in the fireplace. Christmas is basically here… get into it y’all!
