Mariah Carey has release visual for her new holiday single “The Star” from the soundtrack of the animated film of the same name. Directed by Jeb Hardwick, the video features Carey looking fabulous in a shiny dress as she sings in front of festive backdrops. Her twins Roc and Roe also make a cameo in the video.
In The Star, a small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a loveable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become unlikely heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.
The film hits theaters this Friday (Nov. 17) and includes voice overs from Carey, Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Steven Yeun, Christopher Plummer and more.
“The Star” isn’t Carey’s only new Christmas song. Last week, she released “Lil Snowman” from the soundtrack for her animated film, All I Want For Christmas Is You, available now.

“Working with Rico Love was like surreal. It was amazing. Just the fact that the thought I had enough talent to get in the studio with me. He made me feel comfortable.He just knew what to get out of me what I didn’t even know I had in myself,” Rivera said.
“All These Kisses” is Rivera’s official debut single, which peaked at No. 3 on the iTunes R&B chart upon its release in June. Watch the “All These Kisses” music video below.
You may know her from her television roles, but Serayah is ready to step into solo stardom. The 22-year-old has released the video for her debut original single “Driving Me.”
The video finds Serayah channeling 90s influences Aaliyah and Destiny’s Child in her fashions, and even popular 90s sitcom Moesha in her jeep-driving scene. The video also features Jazze Pha, who produced and is featured on the track. On the song, the singer/actress laments about her confusing, twisted, and sometimes volatile relationship that is absolutely driving her insane.
“Thought you would keep it a G / Thought you would keep it a thou / Whenever I tell the truth / You wanna break shit and wild out / I tried to get into you/You tried to get into my pants / What’s a young tender to do? / You ain’t even doing my dance,” she sings.
Serayah is best known for her role as “Tiana Brown” on Lee Daniels’ hit show Empire. Although she has recorded many songs for the show, “Driving Me” is her first original record. Empire currently airs on Wednesdays at 8/7c on FOX.
