New Music: Ariana Grande – ‘Santa Tell Me’

Santa Tell Me

The holidays are here, and Ariana Grande has just the song to put you in the spirit. The pop diva kicks off the season with her Christmas single “Santa Tell Me.” On the festive jingle, she wishes for Santa Claus to bring her a true love that lasts throughout the years.

“Santa tell me if you’re really there / Don’t make me fall in love again if he won’t be here next year,” she sings before being joined by a choir.

A video has already been shot and you can catch Ariana performing the song at “A Very Grammy Christmas,” which airs on December 5.

This is not Ariana’s first foray into Christmas music. Last year, she released her four-song EP Christmas Kisses including her cover of Wham!’s “Last Christmas.”

Following Sunday’s AMAs, she hit the studio to record for her “Bang Bang” collaborator Nicki Minaj’s upcoming album The Pinkprint.
