Jimmy Fallon, Ariana Grande & Megan Thee Stallion Remember ‘Masked Christmas’ in New Music Video

Jimmy Fallon frequently dabbles with tunes on his late-night talk show and much to everyone’s delight, the comic host recently released a single – It Was a Masked Christmas – in collaboration with the diva duo Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion and is centred around Christmas celebrations during a painstaking pandemic. The number comes hand-in-hand with a holiday music video that showcases a host of furiously funny moments from Jimmy rocking a glittery lip to Stallion wearing vaccine needles as nails.

The vibe of the song is in sync with Wham!’s Last Christmas, bringing back the good ol’ retro look that we know, and love. Its melody boasts some quirky beats that will have us on a listening spree this holiday season! Jimmy Fallon explained exactly how he got Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion to record his new holiday song “It Was A…(Masked Christmas).”

On Tonight Show, he said the collaboration began last summer when he was writing and recording the song at New York’s Electric Lady studio. After various producers and record execs heard his solo recording, they suggested he recruit Grande to sing back-up, and then Grande recommended Megan Thee Stallion to replace Fallon’s original rap section.

The song’s chorus compares Christmas 2020 to Christmas 2021:

It was a masked Christmas, we stayed in the house
We covered our nose, and covered our mouth
But it’s Christmas time
We’ll be in line for a booster
