Ariana Grande Releases Snow In California

Let it snow! Ariana Grande just wants to stay in with a long-distance lover on her latest Christmas tune, “Snow In California.”

The singer dropped the track Tuesday (December 3) as the latest installment in her weekly holiday series. “Snow In California” is one of the original tunes penned for the series, which also includes her covers of signature Christmas tracks, like Wham!’s 1984 classic “Last Christmas.” The songs will be collected in a four-song EP.

“Snow In California” is a ballad where Grande wishes to get snowed in so that her boy doesn’t get on a flight and leave her. “Can you just make it snow in California?/ I’ll even settle for rain/ Don’t want him to go tomorrow morning/ Give me something to make him stay,” she sings to Santa.

There is one track that Grande has declared too sacred to cover: Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas.” She has declared the track “untouchable” to MTV News. But, she hasn’t been shy about penning lyrics for her own original Christmas tunes.

She added, “You just write about your feelings and throw in a fireplace here and there, a sensible mistletoe lyric, and you got it.”

[Verse 1]
Dear Santa
It’s me Ariana
I know it’s been awhile but I really need
Your help this year
Let me make this clear
See I really love him
And it’s been kinda tough cause
He’s only in town for the holidays
Tomorrow he’s flying away
Away from me

I don’t need another gift
I just have one wish
This year can you

Just make it snow in california
I’ll even settle for rain
Don’t want him to go tomorrow morning
Give me something to make him stay
Wrapped in his arms by the fireplace
Will be the perfect gift
Let it snow let it snow let it snow
Let it snow
In Calif-orn-i-a

[Verse 2]
Dear Santa
What happened to the plan we had
I checked the news and it said
It’d be a sunny day
Make it go away
See I I really need him to stay
For a couple more days
Can’t you make his
Five o’clock flight delay
Won’t you find a way


I know I’m asking for the impossible
But I believe in miracles
I need my baby right here with me
So please, please
