Tuesday, 22 November, 2011 (Toronto, ON) - The holiday season is off to a jolly start with the new duet recording of "When Christmas Comes" by worldwide superstar Mariah Carey and Grammy award-winning R&B hitmaker John Legend. "When Christmas Comes" is available at radio and on iTunes® now. The video for "When Christmas Comes" featuring John Legend was directed by feature film director Sanaa Hamri. Hamri also directed the video for Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber's Superfestive new duet version of Mariah's self-penned, #1 classic, "All I Want For Christmas Is You", which was originally released on the now classic, MERRY CHRISTMAS, one of the world's best selling Christmas albums of all time. Mariah's hit holiday album, MERRY CHRISTMAS II YOU moves into its second year of release in 2011. The album includes the original [non-duet] version of "When Christmas Comes", as well as Mariah's updated version of her all-time #1 standard, "All I Want For Christmas Is You". In addition to traditional yuletide fare - "The First Noel", "Little Drummer Boy", "O Little Town of Bethlehem", "O Come All Ye Faithful" and more - MERRY CHRISTMAS II YOU also contains four original songs composed by Mariah; "Oh Santa!" and "All I Want For Christmas Is You" among them. Album producers include American Idol's Randy Jackson, multi-platinum hit-maker Jermaine Dupri, James Poyser (who has worked with Aretha Franklin, The Roots, Lauryn Hill and others) and five-time Oscar nominee and Grammy-Tony-Emmy award winning composer, Marc Shaiman. MERRY CHRISTMAS II YOU was Mariah Carey's 13th studio album, following up Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel (2009), her gold-selling E=MC² (2008) and multi-platinum, The Emancipation Of Mimi (2005).
