Must List

5 celeb Christmas albums you need to listen to this holiday season

Whether you are a Christmas-starts-November-1st type of person or a wait-until-*after*-Thanksgiving type, there's no denying that the second the holiday music starts, it means Christmas is finally on its way. Bypass the Spotify search for the perfect holiday album, and check out this list instead to find the perfect songs for your occasion.

1. Sounds of the Season: The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection

No one does Christmas music quite like Taylor Swift. This album came out between her debut album and Fearless, so it's the perfect blast from the past of young Taylor.

2. Merry Christmas by Mariah Carey

A celebrity Christmas album list is incomplete with the Queen of Christmas herself. This is the most classic celeb Christmas album that can never literally never go wrong. 

3. Merry Christmas, Y'all by Thomas Rhett

If you want to mix up the regular pop Christmas albums with the usual songs, then we recommend going with this new Thomas Rhett Christmas album. It's only a few songs, but we are obsessed!

4. Christmas by Michael Bublé

If Mariah Carey is the queen of Christmas, then does that make Michael Bublé the king? Imagine listening to this album in front of a warm fire with a cup of hot chocolate and snow falling outside—nothing gives more perfect holiday vibes. 

5. A very Trainor Christmas by Meghan Trainor

Another album to pull out if you're looking for something to mix up the usual round-up. We love how she mixes in classics with her own songs!
