For the past four weeks, Grande premiered a new song from her Christmas EP. Her cover of the sensual Christmas track “Santa Baby” (popularized by Eartha Kitt) is the final track of the series. It’s also the second cover she’s done for the EP following her R&B take on Wham!’s “Last Christmas.”
Grande enlisted her former Nickelodeon co-star and real life best friend Elizabeth Gillies for a feature on “Santa Baby.” The two singers rightfully turn up the heat this winter season with their sultry rendition. In a very Ariana fashion, the song is also a bit playful with its bluesy, ’50-styled production. “Santa, honey, so hurry down the chimney tonight,” they tease together with breathy vocals. Grande and Gilllies turn out to be quite the dream team on “Santa Baby.”
“Santa Baby” is now available on iTunes.
