Mariah Carey Just Released a New Christmas Video With a Cameo from Her Adorable Twins

Mariah Carey has been the undisputed Queen of Christmas since the 1994 release of her enduring hit “All I Want for Christmas.” And while there’s no topping that classic, her new holiday song and video, “The Star,” have us feeling all the warm fuzzies of the season.


Singing the title track from the new animated feature The Star, Carey embodies the holiday spirit in a long, shimmery silver gown and cape. Adding even more magic to the track are the backup vocals from her six-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan. Not only can they be heard singing, “Follow your heart; it’s Christmas,” in the chorus, but they also make a cameo in the movie-montage video, joined by another kid for their big moment.

Even little Moroccan can’t deny his mom’s Christmas magic, and last year, we were treated to a video of him singing along to “All I Want for Christmas.”

“I love my family first. I love my kids first and they’re amazing,” Carey recently told Brit + Co. She also detailed a few of her family’s favorite Christmas traditions, admitting that the holiday is a big production for her (we’d expect no less, TBH).

And of course, there’s Santa Claus! “Santa Claus comes every year, even some reindeer,” she said. “Really it’s the spirit that matters the most, so that’s what I’m looking forward to doing. To me, that’s much bigger than anything.”

Between this and the Christmas song that Hanson just dropped, we’d say our holiday party playlists are already looking pretty good! Check out Carey’s “The Star” below.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
