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!
