“There’s no mistletoe, I kicked down the tree, ’cause right now that don’t mean nothing to me,” MNEK achingly sings on the original Christmas track “Stopped Believing In Santa.” Even though the lyrics are a bit melancholy, the mid-tempo production is surprisingly upbeat. The juxtaposition between the sorrow in MNEK’s voice and jolly sleigh bells is actually quite brilliant.
“Stopped Believing In Santa” caps off a great year for the 24-year-old English singer. He’s delivered a couple of fantastic singles in 2018 including “Tongue” and a summer favorite of mine “Colour” featuring Hailee Steinfeld. Give his Yuletide offering a listen below.
