This Christmas by Chris Brown
Even though I'm not a huge fan of Chris Brown, I love his version to the song! I love that it's based in the movie This Christmas, a film that had been overly played by BET during Christmas time. I enjoyed the music video and things that it had to offer: Chris magically turning on every Christmas light in the neighborhood and in his house, the Avatar arrow planted on one of the little boys' head, and so on.
The song is chill and cozy, but at the same time fun and danceable. It's a great mixture. It's also another one of those songs I might add to the list of songs I will dance to with my future boo.
I remember listening to this probably in my early teens and falling in love with it. The first time I've heard this song was from a Gospel Christmas CD where a variety of singers were performing carols. The version I've heard from was a Gospel singer Keke Sheard, whose music makes me happy.
Again, not a Chris Brown fan since he's had some toxic behaviors in the past and most of his recent music is trash (just my opinion), but I will always and forever love this song! It just gets me into the mood of Christmas. I believe that people of all ages, single or taken, can enjoy this song. It's a joy to hear in stores and in your own playlist. I hope whoever listens to this song makes them feel something positive.
