“The winner of the best Christmas album of 2020 is clearly Meghan Trainor.”
(December 10, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – With Christmas a little more than two weeks away, Meghan Trainor unveils a new high energy music video for her original holiday song “I Believe In Santa” starring none other than her friend, mega star JoJo Siwa. Watch it HERE.
Powered by show-stopping vocal runs and sweet seasonal swagger, the video seamlessly translates the song’s magic on-screen. After stumbling upon Santa’s house, Siwa electrifies every room she encounters with her unstoppable choreography. She dunks herself in marshmallows and hot cocoa, rocks shiny elf threads, and even inspires Santa J Claus (our favorite TikTok Santa) to bust out his breakdancing skills. Siwa perfectly performs Trainor’s lyrics, “I believe in Santa, not just in December, baby!”
The clip might just make you believe too.
“JoJo is a superstar!,” said Meghan. “She works so hard and her incredible, positive energy is contagious. It was an honor to have her star in this music video!”
“I have always admired Meghan as a singer, songwriter, entertainer! I am so happy and honored to star in her video,” said JoJo. “I can’t wait for the world to see it!”
It’s just the latest anthem to be released from her first-ever Christmas album, A Very Trainor Christmas, via Epic Records. Get A Very Trainor Christmas nowHERE.
