Mariah Carey has finally given the first taste to her upcoming holiday album "Merry Christmas II You". Debuted on PopEater, the fresh single is titled "Oh Santa" and comes from production hands of duo Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox.

As Christmas comes closer, the wife of Nick Cannon in her holiday spirit reveals her wish to Santa Claus. "Santa's gon' come and make him mine this Christmas," she sings on the track which is filled with hand-claps and jingling sleigh bells.

"Oh Santa" is one of the four original songs composed by Carey for the follow-up to her 1994 "Merry Christmas". The other songs include cover version of holiday classics such as "The First Noel", "Little Drummer Boy", "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and "O Come All Ye Faithful" as well as a remix of her 1994 hit "All I Want for Christmas Is You".

"Merry Christmas II You" is due November 2 in the United States. "American Idol" 's judge Randy Jackson, award-winning composer Marc Shaiman and James Poyser (acclaimed music maker for Aretha Franklin, The Roots, Lauryn Hill and more) are contributing to the effort.

this haters are so hatin! haha. Say whatever you want to say people. If her song disappoints you, just say plainly. No need for sarcasm. :) It doesnt really matter what you say because you can never have the success she has achieved. That will only happen in your dreams! Mimi rules!

Mariah's rules. That's why she'll the best female singer in the world, no one can't reach her. I can't wait to have this new album and hear the new version of "All I want for Christmas is you" the best Christma's song...

This song makes me miss the old Mariah even more. Go back and listen to her first Christmas album and tell me this c.r.a.p. is equally good? NOT!

Oh Santa is not what a Xmas song is all about. Reminds me of ‘Mickey Mouse’ theme song with that beat/slaps. Very juvenile + generic :(

This song is one of the most boring and meaningless songs that has been released this year, all you Lambs talk about is how meaningful SANTA is, PLEASE! 40 yo woman, the only thing keeping you relevant is your marketing team and how many times you fake your pregnancy!

"The only people who would find this song even remotely good, are Mariah's delusional fans, or maybe some 1st graders" 2 out of 5*
