Street Date: Mariah Carey & John Legend Team Up To Spread Holiday Cheer With New Single “When Christmas Comes”
It’s starting to feel more like christmas every day and Pop diva [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mariah Carey[/lastfm] never disappoints around this time of year. In the spirit of the 2011 holiday season, Mimi duets with GRAMMY award winning artist [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]John Legend[/lastfm] in a new remix to her song When Christmas Comes.
Mariah’s latest release comes shortly after the release of another Christmas track she recently recorded with teen sensation [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] entitled All I Want For Christmas Is You. But Mariah certainly shifts gears on her latest crack at a Christmas tune as this time we see Mimi working extremely well with another big name as her counterpart in the form of acclaimed R&B icon [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]John Legend[/lastfm] on When Christmas Comes. The resulting work is a heart-warming duet with a ton of soul that shouldn’t be ignored by fans of either artist.

The structure and buildup of the When Christmas Comes is what makes the song great; first starting off with Mariah’s angelic voice followed by the two harmonizing together as only they could. Just when the song seems to hit it’s peak, it brings you right back down for a verse with just John. The track builds up one more time from there and finishes strong making for a beautiful, fresh new holiday track to brighten up the days counting down to When Christmas Comes.
