    So Jermaine really said that the remix was supposed to be with Beyoncé and Britney? That would have been Top 20 at least for sure.

    JeremySpears if this wasn't a Christmas song I would have agreed with you, but the genre is currently ruling streaming with songs that were released decades ago (with the top one being from Mariah), so it's not unrealistic to expect a high profile collaboration to at least hit Top 20.

    .
    I think it is a recurrent song so it must have enough points to chart within top 50, not below.

    anyway, surprisingly I enjoy it

    Is it flopping though?

    If you had unrealistic expectations as some lambs who thought that it would reach #1 or could only be blocked by AIWFCIY then it is flopping. But if you had more realistic expectations and consider that Mariah is about to chart on the Hot 100 with a remix of a 10 year old song it’s doing fine.

    Having Ariana Grande on a song doesn’t guarantee that the song will be a hit. For some reason her fans rarely support her collaborations. Bed, Quit, Rule the World, My Favorite Part, Boys Like You, Popular Song, Adore, Over and Over Again...they all flopped.

    I think all 3 sound good together. Ari sounds quiet until near the end. J hud sounds beautiful but so does Mariah.

    I've been replaying this a lot. I really enjoy it.

    I watched the video today on the big screen in my classroom with the kids. They loved it.

The only bit where I feel she looks a bit lost is when Mariah and Ari are doing the whistle together, her mic is still up to her face but she isnt involved. It would have been cool if she did the last line with Mariah to close the song, but I get it that Mariah wanted to finish that one line alone. But I think J Hud added a lot to the track.
    I think a 3 way harmony could work. 2 whistle and one head voice

    It's interesting you mention the clapping. It apparently formed the basis for the song

    Dunno about others but I myself am not talking about high notes, more so the actual volume of Ariana's vocals.

    Ariana' voice can be better heard with good quality headphones. Just on regular computer audio it's lost a bit and you wonder whether it's Ariana or Mariah at times.

    To think giving "100%" vocal capabilities means just singing high notes is weird.

    Of course, they were both holding back. Even Ariana sounded like she was doing a lazy vocal warm up, this is no "Bang Bang" type of vocal delivery.

    Just imagine if they gave complicated runs here, knowing that this is GrandMariah vocals that they are up against, the Lambily will roast them every Christmas if both did their 100% vocal capabilities.

    Anyway, this is the first time where their vocals are turned down alternately, when the camera pans on Mariah, it's Mariah that is heard loudly, and the same when it's Ariana and Jennifer, despite them singing at the same time during those parts.
    Yeah I mean Ariana is definitely used as part of a blend, she can barely be heard until the climax part. At least J Hud's lines can be heard and stand out. Ariana is so low, until that one line in the climax and the whistle part.

    I’ve listened to this a few more times and it’s really grown on me - it doesn’t sound as messy as I thought it was.

    They did a good job, sounds like it will be played to death in malls and shops every Christmas for years to come.
