Baby Queen’s ‘Santa Baby’ Is A Fresh Take On A Festive Favourite

Tune in now...

Alt-pop force of nature Baby Queen has shared her new single 'Santa Baby'.

The London based riser – real name Bella Latham – has peppered 2020 with tantalising anti-pop statements, culminating in her sensational 'Medicine' EP.

Out now, the singer closes her breakout year with a special festive cover, tackling a real family favourite.

'Santa Baby' is transformed into something new, with Baby Queen latching on to the "cheeky and satirical lyrics" in her rendition.

She explains: "My dad used to have this Christmas mixtape that he would play every year when it hit December 1st, so Christmas music has always been a really big part of my life, but I think it’s hard to cover a Christmas song without feeling like it’s contrived."

"When we started talking about covering a Christmas song, there was only one that came into my mind like 'this is a song Baby Queen would write', and it’s Santa Baby. I love how cheeky and satirical the lyrics are. They feel really youthful and tongue-in-cheek which is how I’d describe a lot of the music I released this year, so it just made total sense to me."
