Mariah Carey has teamed up with Grammy Award winning singer, John Legend, to release the music video for “When Christmas Comes“. Originally released as a track on the Merry Christmas II You album (for the Santa season of 2010), Mariah has now re-issued the festive song as a duet for the 2011 season. John plays a grand piano during the entire track, and joins in the singing with Mariah during many sections.

The message of the song is clear: give the gift of love – as repeated in the lyrics, “I can’t wait to unwrap your love until Christmas comes.”
