“Deck the Halls,” Hudson captioned a video posing by her stunning Christmas tree, flaunting Carey’s 1994 Merry Christmas album cover on a white tee paired with a brown pea coat and green sweatpants. “Counting down to my favorite holiday!”
The Queen of Christmas herself loved the glamorous look, and retweeted it. “Sooooo festive!!” Carey wrote. “Love you!! By the way, love the shirt.”
The duo recently teamed up with Ariana Grande for “Oh Santa!” — a girl group version of Carey’s 2010 hit. The powerhouse holiday team-up was featured in Carey’s Magical Christmas Special.
“I wrote ‘Oh Santa!’ for my album Merry Christmas II You, which was sort of the follow-up to my first Christmas album — we have several — and so I think it was all about the actual event, of course, of doing ‘Oh Santa!’ with Jennifer and Ari, but it was also like, how do I see this as a producer?” Carey previously told Billboard of the collaboration.
“How do I see these vocals having different textures, what are they? Because originally, I was blending with myself, which that’s kind of one of my favorite things, but it was cool to be able to work with the different vocal textures and play around with it and reimagine it. So that’s what happened. And visually, in the special, it really does feel like a girl group moment. I think we all had a good time with it. That was the fun part about it.”
