Mariah Carey's 'Merry Christmas II You' Gets Tracklisting, Revealing Duet With Mom
As release date of "Merry Christmas II You" gets closer, Mariah Carey unveils tracklisting of the holiday album. She picks up 13 songs including a duet with her opera singer mother Patricia Carey in "O Come All Ye Faithful / Hallelujah Chorus".
In addition, she lists a live version of "O Holy Night" which she performed at the WPC in South Central Los Angeles and New Year's anthem "Auld Lang Syne." As an extra festive, a remix of "All I Want for Christmas Is You" is included.
The lead single "Oh Santa!" is up for purchase on October 12. The music video has been filmed in Los Angeles earlier this month. Rumor has it, Mariah will go retro in the clip with "slight OutKast 'Hey Ya!' vibes". What to expect from the clip was recently teased in a Twitter picture posted by one of her dancers.
"Merry Christmas II You" itself is slated for November 2 in the United States. "American Idol" 's judge Randy Jackson, award-winning composer Marc Shaiman and James Poyser (acclaimed music maker for Aretha Franklin, The Roots, Lauryn Hill and more) are contributing to the effort.
