It’s called This Is Christmas, an 11-track LP containing covers of your favorite Christmas classics, like “Jingle Bell Rock”, “Let It Snow”, and “White Christmas,” as well as one original – the album title track, “This Christmas Day.”
She also teamed up with Boyz II Men for “Winter Wonderland” and “This Christmas Song” featuring Babyface.
Jessie reportedly recorded the entire thing in just two weeks, with help from famed producer David Foster and Darkchild.
The title track is extra special.
“A very close friend of mine lost her brother, and watching someone I love go through such heavy grief every day was so hard,” Jessie said. “I wanted to write something that could just bring a little comfort.”
She adds: “On Christmas Day we celebrate, yes, but she and millions of other people around the world will also reflect and remember loved ones they so wish were here still. It’s a day where family and friends unite in love. This is the meaning behind that song, and why I called the album This Christmas Day.”
