From The Vault: Destiny’s Child – ’8 Days of Christmas’

Happy Christmas to all our That Grape Juice readers. We hope the holidays are treating you oh so well.

In embracing the the festive spirit, our From The Vault pick this week is Destiny’s Child‘s ’8 Days Of Christmas’.

Released as the first single of their holiday album of the same name, the cut – which was released in Winter 2001) is a fan favourite and a R&B classic.

The track amazingly blends traditional hooks (the core of the song is an interpolation of the carol ‘Twelve Days Of Christmas’) and modern Urban beats. It also doesn’t hurt that their world-renown 3-part harmonies are on full display – showcased at its most stellar with the choir-like breakdown.

The accompanying video sees the three diva’s dressed in sexy Santa outfits, parading around a Christmas-themed toy store, complete with a carousel and all. All very standard-festive-fare. Yet, we love it all the same.

So, as you stuff your belly with all that fierce food, hit ‘PLAY’ and let DC3 take you back!

Merry Christmas!

    Really no hating guys! I agree Beyonce is very talented and all that so don´t come for me please. But are you serious when saying this is great? It must be one of the worse original Xmas songs ever released. It´s almost awful. I also remember their Xmas album being a huge flop, and they were at the peak of their popularity as a group
    Compared to any other big act Xmas album this is really bad, vocally and in all fronts

    I am Beyonce obsessed but this is one of the most embarrassing songs of all time. Seriously, it is hilariously terrible.

    I always thought they should of released Spread A Little love on Christmas Day or Opera Of The Bells as the First Single off the Christmas album. Still love the cd though. It takes me back to when I was DC Obsessed ! lol Side Note : did anyone see Michelle tweet about playing this cd on Christmas ?
