Last year, the queens of vocals Kelly Clarkson and Ariana Grande took the world and Christmas by storm with their live rendition of ‘Santa, Can’t You Hear Me,’ and a year later they officially blessed us with the release of the performance on streaming platforms.
After their iconic season on The Voice, the judges were begged by viewers and fans to somehow collaborate and that’s exactly what they did, giving us more than we could ever have expected.
Both artists have already graced our ears with their spin on Christmas music! In 2013, Ariana released Christmas Kisses and Christmas & Chill in 2018. Kelly has also already released a plethora of holiday-inspired music, including albums Wrapped in Red (2013) and When Christmas Comes Around (2021).
“‘Cause all I ever wanted / Isn’t on a shelf and / Santa, can’t you hear me?”
‘Santa, Can’t You Hear Me’
Now they’ve teamed up for this extra special track which is making us want to cover ourselves in tinsel and baubles. The pair first performed the vocally gorgeous (obviously) song back in 2021 for the Kelly Clarkson Presents: When Christmas Comes Around holiday spectacular, and fans were nothing less than absolutely ecstatic. With over 9 million YouTube views and 39 million Spotify streams (of the studio recording), this song is becoming nothing short of a classic.
Plus, Kelly’s newest Christmas album, When Christmas Comes Around, has been nominated for “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album” at the Grammys and features the likes of Chris Stapleton, Brett Eldredge, and obviously the queen, Ariana Grande. Check out the album here!

Is it okay to be playing Christmas music all throughout the year if it’s by these two? Let us know over on Twitter @TheHoneyPOP. We’re also slowly turning into Christmas trees on Instagram and Facebook!
