Mariah Cary is back with another Apple TV+ holiday special

“Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues” is the tittle of a new Apple TV+ holiday special that banks on the popularity of singer, songwriter and actress Mariah Carey.

But don’t worry, this isn’t a repeat of “All I Want for Christmas Is You”, Mariah’s irritating Christmas single that debuted on October 29, 1994 and went on to become one of the best-selling singles of all time and the best-selling holiday ringtone in the US.

Apple has now shared a trailer for the special on Twitter.

From an announcement on the Apple Newsroom website:

The highly anticipated special will reveal the first and only performance of multi-Grammy Award-winning global icon Carey’s new single, “Fall in Love at Christmas,” on Apple TV+. Carey is joined by Grammy-nominated worldwide artist Khalid and Grammy-winning legend Kirk Franklin as they bring the spirit of Christmas to fans around the world. The Queen of Christmas will also ring in the holidays with a dazzling, new rendition of fan favorite, “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).”

“Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues” will feature an exclusive interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe and Carey, along with her 10-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, as they share favorite holiday moments, and Carey celebrates her beloved holiday classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” and Apple TV+’s perennial smash hit, “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special.”

Stream “Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues” via Apple TV+ from December 3.

Mariah Carey’s magical Christmases

Along with the show, Carey’s new soundtrack single titled “Oh Santa!” will debut on Apple Music next Friday. The single will enjoy a short window of exclusivity on Apple Music before reaching other streaming platforms on December 11.

“Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special” was the first Christmas special with Mariah Carey for Apple TV+ which debuted on December 4, 2020 alongside a new single titled “Oh Santa!” A week later, the holiday special reached other streaming platforms, giving Apple TV+ a narrow window of exclusivity.

The project cost the iPhone maker a reported five million bucks to film. It seems to have been well worth it because the Apple TV+ exclusive climbed to #1 in more than a hundred countries around the world. Seeing that kind of success, Apple instantly approved a follow-up with a much larger budget.
