The Queen of Christmas has some exciting news.
There have been only a handful of pop stars who have what it takes to be a performer like Mariah Carey. She is known to be the Queen of Christmas and rightfully so. No matter how many times you've listened to 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' and no matter how much you have grown to dislike the song, you can't help but hum the tune as the holiday season approaches. As we are all getting into the holiday spirit, we are also realizing that Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas this year is not going to be the same since there is a global pandemic going on. But all hope is not lost, not yet at least.
On October 9, Carey sent her fans into a tizzy after she shared a photograph of three directors chairs on set, each brandishing a set of initials: AG, MC, and JH reported NME. Apart from the cryptic photo and a Christmas emoji, Carey didn't say anything further, but the fans took to the task of deciphering it. While it's hard to decipher what exactly is in the works, the initials featured in the snap made the fans guess quite a few names, but two of them stood out. Are we getting a Christmas collaboration?

The decorations look extremely festive and this led the fans to speculate that maybe it's a new single and a music video. News of Mariah Carey's upcoming production, aptly titled Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special, was confirmed back in August, just before the release of her New York Times bestselling memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey. This special album is said to include music, dancing, and animation "driven by a universally heartwarming story that brings the world together", reported Billboard. Though Carey is yet to confirm who is she collaborating with, the internet had some guesses.

And since the internet is not really known for its patience, there have already been quite a few theories about who could be joining Carey on the possible track and two names came up prominently. Most people on Twitter think Carey is collaborating with Jennifer Hudson and Ariana Grande. One person wrote, "MARIAH CAREY ARIANA GRANDE AND JENNIFER HUDSON ARE COLLABORATING ON A CHRISTMAS SONG, GET THE F*CK UP THIS IS THE COLLAB OF THE CENTURY."
A second one added, "is my eyes deceiving me or does this day ariana grande and Jennifer Hudson on a Christmas track cus im gonna scream." What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below.
