Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion have teamed up with Jimmy Fallon for a new Christmas song – watch the video for ‘It Was A…(Masked Christmas)’ below.

The song, riffing on a festive period spent in a pandemic, discusses lockdown, mask-wearing and more in the lead-up to Christmas.

‘It Was A…(Masked Christmas)’ sees Fallon on lead vocals alongside Grande, while the song finishes with a rapped verse from Megan, who says: “This Christmas I’mma make it count / No more quarantine on the couch / This year hang that mistletoe / I’ma kiss everybody that I know.

This year’s different, you can tell,” she goes on. “Deck those halls and jingle bells / Put Purell on everything / Turkey, egg nog, candy cane.”

Watch the song’s official video, which debuted on ‘The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon’ last night (December 6), below.

The new Christmas song follows another recent collaboration from Grande, who teamed up with Kid Cudi for the first time on a new song called ‘Just Look Up’.

The track appears in a new film, ‘Don’t Look Up’, which is due to land on Netflix on December 24. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Timothée Chalamet and Cate Blanchett.

Meanwhile, Grande was recently cast in a forthcoming film adaptation of ‘Wicked’.

Grande will portray Glinda (the Good Witch) and Cynthia Erivo will play Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) in the Tony-winning musical helmed by ‘In the Heights’ director Jon M. Chu.

The adaptation has long been in the works, though it was stalled most recently by Stephen Daldry’s departure as director last October due to scheduling conflicts.
