Move over Bret Michaels and your weird-ass cover of “Jingle Bell Rock” — there’s a new dog crashing our Christmas playlists.
Thanks to the holiday edition of Spotify’s “Singles” series, we now have an official, properly recorded version of DMX singing “Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer,” and it fucking delivers. You may recall that a certain Earl Simmons busted out some “Rudolph” for radio station Power 105.1 back in 2012, so it was only a matter of time before he hit a studio for some real-deal, red-nosed, jolly-growl treatment.
Spotify’s new comp also features Miley Cyrus doing “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree,” Demi Lovato taking her turn on “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” Wolf Alice covering “Santa Baby,” and others that are probably fine but aren’t DMX giving the people what they want.
