What a busy few weeks it’s been for cousin Bieber, he dropped his new album Under the Mistletoe, appeared in Macy’s Black Friday commercial, freestyled over Jay-Z and Kanye’s “Otis,” and not only did he shoot a vide with Boyz II Men, but he did another with Mariah Carey.
According to his Twitter account, that video will be premiere at the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting next week:
“BIG NEWS! Me and
@MariahCarey will debut “All I Want For Christmas Is You” Video WORLDWIDE on the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting. #4DAYS”Of course, Carey has a classic video for the song that showcases her skimpy Santa suits and promiscuous snow-bunny behaviour as she runs around in a festive frenzy.
She took to her Twitter also: “Shooting the final take of ‘All I Want.’ duet with suprise appearance by Jilly Beans & directed by my friend, the wonderful Sanaa Hamri.” What really dated her is her follow-up tweet, acknowledging her personal milestone, “Happy anniversary to MERRY CHRISTMAS II YOU!!”
Bieber told MTV News that securing Carey was easier than expected: “Mariah Carey is doing it with me! It’s incredible. So excited,” he said. “We wanted Mariah from the beginning, but we kind of thought it was really hard, so we didn’t really push the idea. But she’s on my label, so we reached out to some people, she got in contact with us, and Randy Jackson was actually at the studio with us, and I was like, ‘Yo, you think you can help get Mariah on the Christmas album?’ And he was like, ‘I’m actually going to see her in New York on Monday,’ and I was like ‘Yo, go do that!’ ”
