Ariana Grande’s EP ‘Christmas & Chill’ sets new standards for Christmas music

Welcome to Ariana Fridays! Every Friday leading up to Christmas, I’ll be review Ariana Grande Christmas catalog. She happens to have two EPs and  one single. Nothing brings Christmas cheer like Ariana Grande.

It’s the last Friday before Christmas and we are onto our final Ariana Friday. I know, you are very sad like I am but hey, at least we made it here together. And don’t worry, this one will be shorter than the last two. So bundle up and get ready for as it’s time to review Ariana Grande’s final Christmas EP “Christmas and Chill.”

Released back in 2015, “Christmas and Chill is a quick and easy album that you can easily breeze faster than you can breeze through an episode of “Riverdale.” Each song is a little under three minutes long and there are only six songs all today on the album.  It’s short, sweet, and to the point.

Ariana is her Christmas form

Now, this isn’t your grandmothers Christmas music. This is pretty much Christmas sex music. It’s not too vulgar but it’s dirty enough to where you get what’s she’s trying to get at. Ariana wants Santa to cuddle with her under the mistletoe after he comes down her chimney.

The EP isn’t bad. In fact, the beats for the sounds are catchy. I highly enjoyed all of the songs on there. They were fresh and original. The biggest flaw of this album is the length of the songs. While they aren’t too short, it was would have been a much better listening experience if they were longer. The album just has you leaving more. It’s like its teasing more but there’s nothing more to tease. It’s like we got a taste of the cherry and we just need to take a bite but there’s nothing to bite.

I also recommend listening to the Japanese bonus track. It’s a remix version of “Into You” that features the late great Mac Miller. It’s rather good. I wish they would have had his rap on the album version. 

“Christmas & Chill” is a great Christmas EP that improves on what was made in “Christmas Kisses.” Each song stands out and is enjoyable to listen to. The downfall of the EP is the fact that all songs on the EP are so short. If they were a little bit longer, it would be mash out of the park. I highly recommend adding it into your Christmas day rotation. It’s worth the listen.
