Listen: Ariana Grande Covers Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’

Ariana Grande plans to brighten up the festive season by releasing a new Christmas song every Tuesday beginning November 19. Think of it as the holiday equivalent of Justin Bieber‘s #MusicMondays roll out. She gave fans a taste of what’s to come by sharing a snippet of “Last Christmas” on Instagram this afternoon.

First recorded by Wham! way back in 1984, the perky pop tune rivals Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” as the most-enduring and most-covered modern seasonal offering. Ari’s version has a slight urban twist (courtesy of producer Babyface) but sounds suitably bubbly and Christmas cheer-inducing.
