New Music: Eric Bellinger ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’


| December 8, 2013 - 3:46 pm

It’s Christmas and that means it’s time for new spins of old holiday classics. On the rise R&B crooner Eric Bellinger puts everyone’s troubles out of site with his version of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” The track is one of many off his upcoming Christmas LP, Your Favorite Christmas Songs, dropping Dec. 10.

Bellinger takes this old timey Judy Garland Xmas jingle and puts his modern R&B spin on it thanks to a beat from Raw Smoov and a little auto-tune here and there.

“What you got under that tree, girl?” Bellinger sings. “Hope you got something for me, girl.” Ladies can find Bellinger by the mistletoe.

Eric B also dropped “Ain’t No Santa” from his festive LP last week featuring Problem. Once the yuletide wears off, Bellinger will drop The ReBirth, the follow-up to his 3-volume Born to Sing mixtapes early next year.
