Mariah Carey has set her second Christmas special at Apple TV+, “Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues,” the tech giant revealed Tuesday.
The Queen of Christmas’ new holiday event, which will launch in December, will feature Carey, Khalid and Kirk Franklin giving their first performance of their new single, “Fall in Love at Christmas,” on Apple TV+, per the streaming service.
No launch date has been set just yet for “Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues.”
“Mariah’s Christmas: The Magic Continues” is executive produced by Carey, Tim Case, Charleen Manca and Matthew Turke of Supply & Demand. Joseph Kahn (“Bodied Detention,” “Torque”) is director and also gets an EP credit on the special.
Carey’s first Apple TV+ holiday special, “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special,” debuted last December and is currently available to stream on Apple’s platform.
That special combined music, dancing and animation and included guest appearances by Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson and Snoop Dogg. And of course, it also featured Carey performing her iconic No. 1 holiday anthem, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Carey, Ian Stewart, Raj Kapoor and Ashley Edens executive produced that special for Done + Dusted, the production company behind another holiday effort, John Legend’s “A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy,” which aired on NBC. “Mariah’s Magical Christmas Special” was directed by BAFTA Award winner Hamish Hamilton (Oscars, Super Bowl Halftime show, London Olympics Opening & Closing Ceremonies) and Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Roman Coppola (“Mozart in the Jungle,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” “A Very Murray Christmas”).
Carey’s iconic holiday single “All I Want for Christmas Is You” first debuted in 1994 and hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts last Christmas — again.
The singer got in the almost-Christmas-spirit on Monday, the day after Halloween, in an adorable pumpkin-smashing video, which you can watch here. That clip also teased the release of her new single “Fall in Love at Christmas.”
