The Essential Advent Calendar: December 6

The Essential Advent Calendar: December 6 – Katy Perry Shares Video For ‘Cozy Little Christmas’

It’s December 6 and Katy Perry shared her first music video for the holidays – ‘Cozy Little Christmas’.

The video was helmed by directing duo WATTS, known for their work with Steve Aoki, and Noah Cyrus, and the song is now available at all digital service providers after being released last year as an Amazon Original. ‘Cozy Little Christmas’ claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart in December 2018.

On ‘Cozy Little Christmas’, Katy sings about her favorite time of year, reflecting on a holiday season spent with family in Denmark. She co-wrote and co-produced the track with Greg Wells, who produced ‘Waking Up In Vegas’, and Ferras Alqaisi, who co-wrote several songs on ‘WITNESS’.

People Magazine said of the single,

“Bust out the mistletoe and pour a cup of eggnog – now that Katy Perry has released a Christmas ditty, the holiday season has officially begun.”

MTV also noted,

“this festive little tune will be a crowd-pleaser all around.”

Over the past six months, Katy has released a trio of new songs – ‘Harleys in Hawaii‘, ‘Small Talk‘, and the Gold-certified hit, ‘Never Really Over‘.
