It’s here! Mariah Carey’s new video for “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” came out at midnight on Friday (December 20) and it’s really extra.
The original video was a grainy home video of Mariah enjoying Christmas festivities, a big contrast to the new video which is a full Winter Wonderland.
Mariah, dressed in a Santa bodysuit, is seen in a store window at the beginning of the video, as a little girl peers through and eventually enters a Winter Wonderland filled with candy canes, toy soldiers, lots of snow and Mariah in a variety of blingy Christmas attire.
“We wanted to make a modern classic,” Carey said during the Q&A, which was held prior to the video release. “It’s kind of the opposite of the original video.” The 25th anniversary of “All I Want For Christmas” has proven to be a big one for the singer as it hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and during the week of December 12th, it garnered 25 million streams.
