This morning Justin Bieber took to his official Twitter with big news – his Christmas video with Mariah Carey will debut in four days. The video was filmed earlier this month and he tweeted today, “BIG NEWS! Me and @MariahCarey will debut “All I Want For Christmas Is You” Video WORLDWIDE on the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting. #4DAYS” Mariah is excited to share the video with fans as well, as she re-tweeted Justin’s announcement immediately following his tweet. Additionally, back when they shot the video, Mariah tweeted a link to some photos: Z“Mariah shoots “All I Want For Christmas Is You” video w/ @justinbieber in NY! Check out some behind the scenes photos”
Justin has been very busy this holiday season. He released his Christmas album Under the Mistletoe, performed with Mary J. Blige on The View and even ventured out for the Macy’s Black Friday sale (so he said on Twitter!). His album includes some amazing collaborations, including not only Mariah, but also Usher (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire), Boyz II Men (Fa La La), the Band Perry (Home This Christmas), and Busta Rhymes, (Drummer Boy). With regards to the Mariah collaboration, Justin told MTV:
“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!'”
Have you bought Justin’s album yet? Are you excited to see his video with Mariah Carey later this week?
