“Joy to the World” is a reprise from Carey’s 1994 “Merry Christmas” album. The other two songs had also previously appeared on the album’s follow-up, “Merry Christmas II You,” released in 2010. Over the years, Carey had become associated with the Christmas holiday thanks in part to the 1994 album’s debut single, “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which has become a popular Christmas staple in the United States. Given its ongoing popularity, Carey had also notably recently appeared on James Corden's "Carpool Karaoke" where she reprised the song.

What was 'Here Comes Santa Claus' like?

For the first day of the promotion, the singer premiered the full version song of “Here Comes Santa Claus” on her website. Jermaine Dupri served as a producer on the project. Amid a group of actors dressed as toy soldiers and Santa Claus himself, Carey’s twin children, Monroe and Moroccan, appear in the video as elves. With all the performers standing on a turnaround carousel, Carey appears dressed in a red, sequined dress, possibly meant to evoke a Mrs. Claus-inspired appearance.

From what can be gathered from the teaser trailer, the videos for the following two songs are expected to be more serious in tone, featuring Carey singing with the aid of a gospel choir, possibly reflecting the religious nature of the two songs. Although the teaser was posted on Carey’s YouTube channel, it would appear that the new music videos are exclusively intended for the “Mariah World” website.
