Mariah Carey has announced details of her new Christmas single Oh Santa! featuring Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson.

The festive track and its official music video will be released on Friday December 4, and features in Mimi's upcoming Apple TV special Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special which begins streaming the same day.

Oh Santa! previously featured on Mariah's 2010 yuletide album Merry Christmas II You, with the original version clocking up 1.2 million streams in the UK.

The Magical Christmas Special promises to be an "epic production combining musical performances, dynamic dancing and groundbreaking animation".

"Faced with a holiday cheer crisis, the North Pole knows there's only one person who can save the day: Santa’s great friend, Mariah Carey," reads the official press release.

Ariana and J-Hud will feature in the special, as will Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Misty Copeland and Mykal-Michelle Harris, with special appearances from Mariah’s twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

Mariah's staple festive favourite All I Want For Christmas Is You is set to return to the UK's Official Singles Chart Top 40 this Friday, the earliest it has ever made its annual comeback, along with nine more Christmas classics on track for a re-arrival into the Top 100.
