Mariah Carey and AJ Calloway

Mariah Carey Plans Deluxe Edition of Christmas Album for 2012

Nothing says Christmas like Mariah Carey. The festive diva invited “Extra” on set of her new video for “When Christmas Comes” with John Legend. While gathered in front of a Christmas tree in her Beverly Hills home, she spoke with her pal AJ Calloway about the Sanaa Hamri-directed clip, dueting with Legend, and Dem Babies, who will make a cameo.

“I wanted this to be the most fun, family Christmas,” explained Roc and Roe’s mom. “It’s like a soulful family Christmas song and yet I wanted to add all the elements of anything magical that could happen at Christmas.”

During an interview with “The Tom Joyner Morning Show,” the Christmas queen also revealed plans to release a deluxe version of her 2010 holiday album Merry Christmas II You next year.
